 After his father mysteriously vanishes from his truck one night, fifteen-year-old Tristan is left trying to hold his family together. His mother is falling apart, and his little sister is haunted by a strange black shadow with glowing eyes.

Tristan knows his father's disappearance has something to do with the new bypass being built through the centre of town, cutting in half the old Settlers' Gardens. Legend tells of the fey that followed the town's original settlers from their homelands and now reside in the Garden, trapped behind the high iron fence. But now the Garden is too small to hold all the faeries, and they are spilling out into the human world.

Tristan's quest to save his father and heal his broken family will take him deep into the world of the fey, where dueling courts wage a cruel war for control of the Garden, and no faerie can be trusted. 

 
 Court of the Litterfey by S.C. Green

Court of the LitterfeyHis father has mysteriously vanished and Tristan is determined to find out why and where he is. Long held beliefs that the fey lived in a forest near his town leads him to conclude that the mysterious little creatures have taken him and Tristan is going to get him back, but his journey into the land of the fey is one of fantasy and light. What Tristan finds is a tiny world in turmoil, as two courts vie for dominance in their dwindling forestland. It seems even the fey are losing their homes to urban growth and Tristan doesn’t know who to trust. It is his teacher who seems to know the way of the fey and her words may give Tristan the edge in his search and rescue mission.

Delightful and a little dark at times, but a marvelous read for children. Put yourself into the mindset of a child as the fantasy comes alive and one boy can become a hero through dogged determination, as he traverses unknown territory in search of the man who always showed him caring and love. COURT OF THE LITTERFEY is filled with the wonderful imaginings of S.C. Green! Not too dark, not too fluffy, she dances the lines between right and wrong and even touches on that gray area that will make young readers think and empathize with the plight of the fey. She even made sure that there was family love, caring and respect throughout, making Tristan a refreshing hero for younger readers!

I received this copy from S.C. Green in exchange for my honest review.
