When the ancient evil of the Blackbringer rises to unmake the world, only one determined faerie stands in its way. However, Magpie Windwitch, granddaughter of the West Wind, is not like other faeries. While her kind live in seclusion deep in the forests of Dreamdark, she's devoted her life to tracking down and recapturing devils escaped from their ancient bottles, just as her hero, the legendary Bellatrix, did 25,000 years ago. With her faithful gang of crows, she travels the world fighting where others would choose to flee. But when a devil escapes from a bottle sealed by the ancient Djinn King himself, the creator of the world, she may be in over her head. How can a single faerie, even with the help of her friends, hope to defeat the impenetrable darkness of the Blackbringer? At a time when fantasy readers have an embarrassment of riches in choosing new worlds to fall in love with, this first novel by a fresh, original voice is sure to stand out.

Young Magpie Windwitch, faerie granddaughter of the West Wind, is curious, brave, adventurous, and a talented Devil-hunter, but doesn't know of all the magical blessings bestowed on her at birth. When a mysterious darkness threatens the faerie realm of Dreamdark, Magpie must find the resources to capture the Blackbringer before it destroys her world.

Taylor has so carefully wrought her Dreamdark realm that this series promises to become a favorite of fantasy devotees.
