Wicked Nix is the foulest of the fairies. He's also the protector of the forest and will keep people out of it. But when a "man-people" moves into a formerly abandoned cottage, Nix must trick him until he's scared enough to leave.

Nix makes his water stinky, plants thorns in his garden, and puts out his fires, but nothing is working. This "man-people" is determined to stay, but the queen will be returning soon and Nix doesn't want to disappoint her. However, meeting this "man-people" leads to an unexpected and heartbreaking revelation.

WICKED NIX is a beautifully crafted story about the wicked and deceiving ways of fairies. It is both heartwarming and heartbreaking all in one. I love Nix's character and how he is fun and innocent, but is also the "foulest of the fairies".


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of fantasy, folk tales and myths, and fairies.
