What is an ex-pixie to do?From official release/information:
From back of book: The leader of her tribe had exiled Thistle Down from Pixie. Trapped in a human body and deprived of almost all of her Pixie magic, Thistle had made a life for herself with the help of her human friends--Desdemona "Dusty" Carrick and her brother Dick. But trouble was brewing among all the Pixie tribes, fueled by Haywood Wheatland, a half-Pixie/Half-Faery, who was determined to seize control of The Ten Acre Woods for the Faeries.
Thistle, Dick, Dusty, and her fiancÚ, Police Sergeant Chase Norton, thought the treat to the town of Skene Falls and The Ten Acre Wood had ended with Haywood's arrest and imprisonment, but they were wrong. For even as they turned their attention to romance and weddings, the Pixie tribes were preparing for war. Only a young inexperienced Pixie named Chicory was taking a stand against the growing Pixie army in The Ten Acre Wood. And even if he could convince Thistle and her new human family to help him, it might already be too late to avert the destruction of all Pixies.
