It’s Trainspotting meets Narnia! After a coup in the Faerie Kingdom, evil Queen Mab steals the crown and throws the realm into darkness.

A group of deserter fairies live in the real world, shooting Red Horse, a drug made from heroin and human blood. A rebellious teenager falls in with the fairies and gets hooked on the drug, only to be dragged into the dangerous war in Faerie.

Writer Mike Carey (Crossing Midnight) is reunited with acclaimed fantasy painter John Bolton (Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall) for this entertaining tale. Bolton’s evocative watercolors are fantastic, combining stunning realism with dark fantasy to capture the seedy underbelly of London and the wasteland realm.
