Dana Faolan, the spunky half-faerie heroine of The Light-Bearer’s Daughter, the third book in The Chronicles, has been using her access to the land of Faerie to escape the troubles of being a teenager in a new town. But a dark, mysterious enemy is determined to sever the two worlds forever, thus dooming both. It will take all of Dana’s bravery and resourcefulness, plus the help of friends old and new, to save her two homes, especially when it becomes clear that the answer lies in an act of terrible sacrifice.
Just as the previous books explored Ireland’s rich folkloric history, The Book of Dreams delves into the magical lore of Canada. Melling delivers another “compelling blend of mythology and geography” (School Library Journal, starred review) that will thrill fans of the series.
