Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries - Emily Wilde Series (Paperback)Heather Fawcett (author)
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.

'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 & 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 Heap
