      This novel shows you that there's a whole new side to fairies. A dark, twisted one.

      Tanya is your typical girl, with one exception. She can see faeries; courtesy of: the second sight. But these aren't your average "we'll grant you your every wish with a smile" faeries, no, they are the opposite. Dark, malicious, repulsive creatures. And they're determined to keep their sinister existence a secret; by making poor Tanya's life, a living nightmare.

She can see faeries; courtesy of: the second sight. But these aren't your average "we'll grant you your every wish with a smile" faeries, no, they are the opposite. Dark, malicious, repulsive creatures. And they're determined to keep their sinister existence a secret; by making poor Tanya's life, a living nightmare.
      At the beginning, we are given a group of faeries, who are cautioning Tanya, for writing about them in her diary, regardless of her burying it to erase her actions. They then punish her by causing chaos in her bedroom, which leaves Tanya's tired mother no choice but to send Tanya, and her dog Oberon, off to live with her grandmother, Florence, at Elvesden Manor, for two weeks.

      But while Tanya is there, she is left to her fate, and after a series of events, she begins her quest to discover the truth about Morwenna Bloom, a girl who disappeared in Hangman's Wood fifty years ago, and was, mysteriously, never found.

      Accompanying her in her research is a silver charm bracelet, given to her by Florence, and which she later finds out is based on the thirteen treasures and includes little (fake) replicas of each of the treasures. There is also a stained, brass compass, with a fascinating purpose, a silky red scarf, and an interfering, mischievous boy, mixed altogether with a cauldron of spine-tingling mysteries.

      I really enjoyed this book; it was captivating, intriguing, and simply magical. There is a definite mood that has been fashioned with skill.
