Summary
Los Angeles-based filmmaker Millie, paraplegic and institutionalized following a suicide attempt, receives an unusual job offer from Caryl, a representative of the Arcadia Project, a nonprofit organization that arranges gainful employment for individuals with mental health issues. What this actually means, Millie learns when she accepts the job, is that she's to serve as a liaison between Hollywood and Fairyland. Her first assignment? Track down a missing actor who also happens to be a Seelie Court noble. With its tough-yet-vulnerable heroine, gritty supernatural-inflected setting, and intricate fae politics, this debut may appeal to fans of Seanan McGuire's October Daye series. -- Description by Gillian Speace
