Description
Erstwhile teenager Henry Atherton, his faerie prince friend Pyrgus, and Pyrgus's fearless sister Holly Blue return in this follow-up to the wildly popular Faerie Wars (a Book Sense 76 Children's Pick and an ALA Best Book for Young Adults) for readers 11 to 14. The Purple Emperor is dead, and Pyrgus is meant to claim his throne, but the evil Lord Hairstreak has stolen the emperor's body and reanimated it to disinherit Pyrgus in favor of his half-brother Comma.

"With the loathsome villains introduced in Faerie Wars still advancing toward crown prince Pyrgus Malvae, this sequel is off to a galloping start, and the fast-paced action continues throughout the story.... Once again, Henry Atherton finds himself transported back to the Faerie realm, where he helps Pyrgus and his sister, Holly Blue, defeat Hairstreak and his minions. There's plenty of humor as well as dangerous adventure—and the conclusion promises more to come."—Booklist
