Exiled from her underground home by Betony, the jealous queen of the piskeys, Ivy sets out to make a new life for herself in the world above – a quest that leads her to mystery, adventure, and a hoard of spriggan treasure. But a deadly poison still lingers in the Delve, and Ivy cannot bear to see her people dying under Betony’s rule.

With the help of some old friends she sets out to warn the piskeys of their danger, urging them to rise up and free themselves before it is too late. Yet Betony will not give up her kingdom without a fight… and when her evil threatens the friends and family Ivy holds most dear, it will take all Ivy’s courage, daring and determination to save them.

Blurb and cover from Goodreads

This is a faery rebels book. You can take it as read that I spent the whole time reading it with a ridiculous grin on my face. There is something incredibly engaging about the mix of description and dialogue in these books, where I feel nostalgic for places I have never been and things that haven’t happened yet.

Zara, Ziggy and Zoe are three little witches who live together in Magic Wood. Cups and saucers wash themselves up, letters sprout wings, a calendar sings a song, and Wizard Wink’s school moves from place to place. The three little witches are planning a Halloween party, but naughty Melissa is out to make trouble!


Punctuated by catchy rhymes and speech bubbles, the stories demand to be read aloud, and with their bright, funny pictures and lively design they are hugely appealing.
