The Book of Stolen Time: Second Book in the Feylawn Chronicles (Hardcover)
From New York Times–bestselling author Dashka Slater comes the whimsical and witty sequel to The Book of Fatal Errors!
Rufus may have successfully sent the feylings home to the Green World, but he still has one pesky feyling under his wing: Nettle, his sometimes enemy, now mentor. Nettle is in charge of helping Rufus and his cousin Abigail protect Feylawn, their grandfather’s magical and mysterious homestead.
But this difficult task becomes even more dangerous when a leopard appears in the woods without warning; strange, waterlogged women arrive to warn of impending doom; and a goblin begins digging his way back to Earth, hungry for revenge. Meanwhile, Rufus’s father is intent on selling Feylawn to the highest bidder. Can Rufus and Abigail save Feylawn and its magic? Or will they have to say goodbye to the feylings forever?
In The Book of Stolen Time, our favorite heroes are back! And magic, mischief, and adventure abound.
