Thirty year-old Ember Addams has spent her entire life living under close guard. She doesn't really know why, but she's never asked either. When she's reunited with an old schoolmate and his son, Ember discovers she's not just the only redheaded fairy born with black magic in all of Tír na Ní, she's also The Fey, destined by prophecy to die.
Only the prophecy is wrong.
With the help of her two new guardsmen, Ember sets out to finally learn how to wield her fairy magic, and make it to the hidden kingdom where the high fairy queen awaits. Will the prophecy drive her to her doom? Or will she survive long enough to save all the fairy folk in Tír na Ní?
