“What an absolutely delightful follow-up to Emily Wilde’s first faerie adventure! The Faeries’ nonsensicality and bizarre behavior made this book feel like old fairytales in the best way. I would read about Emily’s adventures forever!”

Staff Reviews


The second book in the Emily Wilde Series (click here for both) is yet another exciting adventure awaiting you on our shelves. Emily and Bambleby are back at Cambridge when things go horribly wrong. Faeries from other realms show up wreaking havoc on campus, putting students and staff in danger as they try to take out Brambleby. Spoiler alert: our likable faerie is no ordinary fay, but a courtly prince! Now our two favorite characters embark to find Brambleby’s homeland and a professor who went missing years ago, coincidentally while she was on her quest to explore the same faerie realms. A new town, fresh characters, and even more unique information about faeries are brought to light as our explorers go boldly into unknown and dangerous lands.
It was a little creepy to find out that 1- faeries can live in our very midst undetected and they aren’t always benevolent, and 2- changelings can make life a living nightmare. Brownies, however, like our beloved friend Poe who is ALSO in this book, will be your friend and make you bread and biscuits that never grow cold. Time passes differently in the faerie realms, and once you enter, the way home is not always clear. The danger of roaming aimlessly forever is all too real. All of these new revelations make this book an all-the-more-wonderful deep dive into faerie culture. I was captivated by Heather Fawcett’s development of not only the characters I had fallen in love with in the first installment, but also the new ones who join our duo on their quest. As each book passes, you become more and more immersed in the faerie lands. My hope is that in her next book we might just live there on every page!

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • When mysterious faeries from other realms appear at her university, curmudgeonly professor Emily Wilde must uncover their secrets before it’s too late, in this heartwarming, enchanting second installment of the Emily Wilde series.

Emily Wilde is a genius scholar of faerie folklore who just wrote the world’s first comprehensive encyclopaedia of faeries. She’s learned many of the secrets of the Hidden Ones on her adventures . . . and also from her fellow scholar and former rival Wendell Bambleby. 

Because Bambleby is more than infuriatingly charming. He’s an exiled faerie king on the run from his murderous mother and in search of a door back to his realm. And despite Emily’s feelings for Bambleby, she’s not ready to accept his proposal of marriage: Loving one of the Fair Folk comes with secrets and dangers. 

She also has a new project to focus on: a map of the realms of faerie. While she is preparing her research, Bambleby lands her in trouble yet again, when assassins sent by his mother invade Cambridge. Now Bambleby and Emily are on another adventure, this time to the picturesque Austrian Alps, where Emily believes they may find the door to Bambleby’s realm and the key to freeing him from his family’s dark plans.

But with new relationships for the prickly Emily to navigate and dangerous Folk lurking in every forest and hollow, Emily must unravel the mysterious workings of faerie doors and of her own heart.

“Like all good fairy tales, this book is enchantingly charming, with hints of razor-sharp teeth. My only complaint is that it ends; I want to live in Emily’s Otherlands forever.”—Kiersten White, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Mister Magic
