About the Book
Salistarie and Eric are two guards of Green Stone Village who are charged with an important mission: to destroy the Queen Witch Matelda, before she wreaks havoc on their community. With the help of Digory and Misorey, the fairies set off on an adventure that will take them through the dark orx forest, shark-infested waters, the orx maze, and the abandoned natural history museum to the final confrontation at the witch's fortress. Along the way, the fairies learn about courage and valor as they face tough adversaries. Their bonds of friendship deepen over the course of this difficult quest. Inspired by a series of dreams that author Nicholas Michael Grass had, this story shows the influence of some of his favorite writers, including Eoin Colfer, Christopher Paolini, J. K. Rowling, and R. L. Stine.
