· A New York Times Bestseller · A Book Sense Halloween Top Ten Pick: # 3 Visit FaerieWars.com to read extracts, download a screensaver and send ecards. When Henry Atherton helps Mr. Fogarty clean up around his house, he expects to find a mess and a cranky old man; what he doesn't expect to find is Pyrgus Malvae, crown prince of the Faerie realm, who has escaped the treacherous Faeries of the Night by traveling to the human world through a portal powered by trapped lightning. An egomaniacal demon prince, greedy glue factory owners Brimstone and Chalkhill, and the nefarious Lord Hairstreak, leader of the Faeries of the Night, all dream of ruling the Faerie realm and are out to kill Pyrgus. Enlisting the help of his sister, Holly Blue, and his new friend, Henry, Pyrgus must get back to the Faerie world alive before one of his many enemies gets to him instead. But how many portals are open, and can Pyrgus find the right one before it falls into the wrong hands? Conjuring scenes filled with vivid color, unforgettable detail, and fearless characters, author Herbie Brennan brings readers to the Faerie world, where nothing is ever what it seems and no one can be trusted. Herbie Brennan has written many books for adults and children, including Fairy Nuff, Nuff Said, and Frankenstella and the Video Store Monster. Over the years his books have sold more than 7.5 million copies worldwide. By age thirty, he made the decision to devote most of his time to full-length works of fact and fiction and since then has published more than sixty books. He lives in County Carlow, Ireland. A Virginia Young Readers book selection for the 2005-2006 school year Publishers Weekly bestseller list, month of November "I meant to read this book at my leisure; I ended up missing two meals and an important phone call. If Herbie Brennan doesn't write a sequel to Faerie Wars, I may have to get a petition going." -Eoin Colfer, author of A The Faerie world: where nothing is ever what it seems and no one can be trusted.
