This book takes elements you would normally never see together and combines them wonderfully. It's historical fiction and an intriguing twist on fairy stories. It explores identity--Callie's mother is a mortal white woman and her father a black fairy which leaves Callie struggling to find where she belongs. Most of all it's a great adventure tale as Callie flees forces natural and supernatural.
