Waterstones Says

Combining whimsical fantasy with a dash of gentle romance, Fawcett's utterly captivating novel tracks the burgeoning relationship between the eponymous scholar of faeries and her handsome rival as they attempt to discover the elusive Hidden Ones.

Emily Wilde is good at many things: she is the foremost expert on the study of faeries; she is a genius scholar and a meticulous researcher who is writing the world's first encylopaedia of faerie lore. But Emily Wilde is not good at people. So when she arrives in the hardscrabble village of Hrafnsvik, Emily has no intention of befriending the gruff townsfolk. Nor does she care to spend time with another new arrival: her dashing and insufferably handsome academic rival Wendell Bambleby.

But as Emily gets closer to uncovering the secrets of the Hidden Ones - the most elusive of all faeries - she also finds herself on the trail of another mystery: who is Wendell Bambleby, and what does he really want? To find the answer, she'll have to unlock the greatest mystery of all - her own heart.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries charmed me more than any faerie king ever could. . . the ideal book to curl up with on a chilly winter's evening. I would follow Emily and Wendell to the ends of the earth. This book is an absolute delight - Megan Bannen, author of THE UNDERTAKING OF HART AND MERCY

Enchanting in every sense of the word, Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries is a delight of snow laden forests and changelings, folklore and fairy kings, meticulous footnotes and academic rivalry and adventure. Brilliant, prickly Emily Wilde and her infuriatingly charming fellow scholar have a special place in my heart now. This book is real magic - H. G. Parry, author of THE UNLIKELY ESCAPE OF URIAH HEEP

A charmingly whimsical delight, saturated with faerie magic and the equally wonderful magic of humanity. . . Five dazzling, gladdening stars - India Holton, author of THE WISTERIA SOCIETY OF LADY SCOUNDRELS

Forget dark academia: give me instead this kind of winter-sunshined, sharp-tongued and footnoted academia, full of field trips and grumpy romance and malevolent faeries. Emily Wilde is a narrator I won't forget in a hurry, and this book was an invigorating balm for my heart and mind - Freya Marske, author of A MARVELLOUS LIGHT

A book so vividly, endlessly enchanting, so crisply assured, so rich and complete and wise and far-reaching in its worldbuilding that you'll walk away half ensorcelled, sure Fawcett found Emily Wilde's journal in some sea-stained trunk - Melissa Albert

A darkly gorgeous fantasy that sparkles with snow and magic, this book wholly enchanted me - Sangu Mandanna, author of THE VERY SECRET SOCIETY OF IRREGULAR WITCHES

A thoroughly charming academic fairy tale, complete with footnotes and a low-key grumpy romance - Guardian

“The absolute perfect whimsical fantasy read”

First of all, I have to admit to losing myself so completing in Heather Fawcett’s writing that I read the whole book in one sitting. Much like the enchantments of the Fae I lost all sense of time!
