The True Queen
Who will inherit Fairyland?
FAIRYLAND'S FUTURE LIES IN DOUBT
Muna and her sister Sakti wake on the shores of an enchanted island, under a curse. And this has quite stolen away their memories. They plan to petition Britain's Sorceress Royal for aid. However, to reach Regency London they must pass through the realm of the formidable Fairy Queen. Here Sakti disappears.
To save her sister, Muna must learn to navigate London's high society. But when the Sorceress Royal's friends are inadvertently embroiled in a plot, concerning Fairyland's succession, Muna is drawn right in. She must also find Sakti, break their curse and somehow stay out of trouble. But if Fairyland's True Queen does finally return, trouble may find her first . . .
