I the realm of Faerie, the time has come for Roiben's coronation. Uneasy in the midst of the malevolent Unseelie Court, pixie Kaye is sure of only one thing – her love for Roiben. But when Kaye, drunk of faerie wine, declares herself to Robien, he sends her on a seemingly impossible quest. Now Kaye can't see or speak to Roiben unless she can find the one thing she knows doesn't exist: a faerie who can tell a lie.
Miserable and convinced she belongs nowhere, Kaye decides to tell her mother the truth – that she is the changeling left in place of the human daughter stolen long ago. Her mother's chock and horror sends Kaye back to the world of Faerie to find her human counterpart and return her to Ironside. But once back in the faerie courts, Kaye finds herself a pawn in the games of Silarial, queen of the Seelie Court. Silarial wants Roiben's throne, and she will use Kaye, and any means necessary, to get it. In this game of wits and weapons, can a pixie outplay a queen?
Holly Black spins a seductive tale at once achingly real and chillingly enchanted, set in a dangerous world where pleasure mingles with pain and nothing is exactly as it appears.

Utdrag ur boken:
''These faeries told me about the declaration thing. They were kind of – I don't know – bragging, I guess. Anyway, Roiben told me I had to stay in the audience for the ceremony, and I kept thinking about how I didn't fit in and how maybe he was disappointed, you know? I thought that maybe he secretly wished I knew more of their customs – maybe he wished I would do something like that before he had to send someone else on a quest.''
Corny frowned. ''What? A quest?''
''A quest to prove your love.''
''So dramatic. And you did this declaration thing? You declared.''
Kaye turned her face, so that he couldn't read her expression. ''Yeah, but Roiben wasn't happy about it, as in not at all.'' She put her head in her hands. ''I think I really fucked up.''
''What's your quest?''
''To find a faery that lies.'' Her voice was very low.
''I thought faeries couldn't lie.''
Kaye just looked at him.
Suddenly, horribly, Corny understood her meaning. ''Okay, hold on. You are saying that he sent you on a quest that you couldn't possibly complete.''
''And I'm not allowed to see him again until I do complete it. So basically, I'm not going to see him ever again.''

2010-03-03 17:34
Del två (eller tre beroende på om man räknar in den fristående delen "Valiant") i Holly Blacks bokserie om bortbytingen Kaye Fierch. Det är tänkt att föreställa en modern saga anpassad för dagens ungdomar. Det innebär att finns en aktiv, drivande hjältinna (dock med nojiga tjejtonårskomplex som "min pojkvän tycker inte om mig, vad gör jag för fel?"), mycket svärande och drivande med de klassiska sagorna.
