Winter Blue is a 14 and a half years old fairy-child who lives in two parallel worlds, the human world, and another secret and wondrous world - MagicLand. There she meets Grinding beetles, an amusing dwarfling by the name of Kroshtank which is in search of the rare Bambiloks flowers, and of course fairies, house-fairies, dwarflings and many others.
Winter also meets a fairy-child named Nikki and goes on her first date with Brian. When one day colorful lighting and throbbing, sparkling light balls start appearing in the human world, winter and her friends set out to investigate. The fairies warn that it seems that a, once in 500 years, magic storm is about to start. The children set out to mitigate the upcoming storm, confront a dangerous creature named Taragus and discover a dark secret from Eizmergada’s past.
This is the fourth installment in the Winter Blue, Fairy-Child book series.
The Winter Blue, Fairy-Child series (7 books and a magical cookbook) oscillates between imagination and reality, between the life of a teenage girl with all its day to day complexities and a rich adventure story which takes place primarily in MagicLand. MagicLand is a secret world run by the fairies, where all magical creatures took refuge after having fled from the human world. The plots are threaded between the two parallel worlds and sweep the reader onto enchanting adventures.
