Betwixters: Once Upon a Time by Laura C. Cantu

Not everyone can see fairies.  It takes someone with a bit of Merlin's blood in them.  The three oddballs at school that hang out together have that power...

Winterwolf Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published July 1st.

The fairy that shows up in our world got there by accident.  She manages to get in reach of a portal that whisked her through.  But she ends up in the forest, where her enemies roam.  The only thing that saves her is the fact that the neighborhood bully has driven the trio into the woods.  He intends to beat them up, it's the only place they can escape him.  They've been forbidden to enter there but they are getting away from harm.  Or are they?

The man that lives in the forest is an enemy to the fairies.  He is also an enemy to the children.  They survive their first visit but when they find the fairy and have to work on getting her back to her portal, they get into an even more dangerous situation.  It's not just the old man looking for them.  There's a big shadow wolf...

There's lots of excitement, worries all around and even when they get her back, the story isn't done yet.  This is the first in a series that looks like it will be good fun to read.  I'd be worried about that big monster if it was me...
