Gemma Fae Cross, a tough-girl amateur boxer whose fiancé is running for congress, has just made a startling discovery about herself. She is half faerie – and not just any faerie, but a tooth faerie.

A hybrid of fae and human, Gemma is destined to defend the Olde Way and protect the fae – who are incapable of committing violence – from threats to their peaceful and idyllic way of life, which must be maintained by distilling innocence collected from children’s baby teeth.

But when a threat to the fae mission emerges, Gemma is called upon to protect her heritage, and become a legendary fae warrior… even if it means sacrificing everything she knows about being human.

“A forthright, alarmingly logical urban fairy tale with a very engaging protagonist. It balances its whimsy nicely with sarcasm and genuine emotion.”
− Pamela Dean, author of Tam Lin and Juniper, Gentian, and Rosemary

“Gemma Fae Cross is no delicate elfin fairy; she’s a hard-hitting, flawed, stubborn, and often all too human warrior. She fights evil and collects teeth. What more do you need to know?”
− Jim C. Hines, author of The Snow Queen’s Shadow and Goblin Quest “Gemma Cross is not the lost princess of Faerie. Princesses get to keep their hands clean and their noses unbroken. No, Gemma does the dirty work, which in this case means searching for whatever is stealing the innocence of Washington, D.C.’s kids….”
Emma Bull, author of War for the Oaks and Territory

“... [A] quirky juxtaposition of testosterone-laden gym scenes with tooth fairy business. The writing is smooth and fun to read.”
− Nina Kiriki Hoffman, author of The Thread That Binds the Bones and Thresholds
