Eliza Drake used to believe in fairies. Like Eventide, fey of the dusk, and Jayhren, the lightning fairy – and all sorts of others she once played games with. She's grown up now, and she knows they were her sister's silly stories. Only the fairies haven't quite got the message. Seeing that Eliza is needing help, three fairies arrive to convince her to remember them and, if they're feeling kind, offer some well-intentioned but poorly thought-out advice on the perils of growing up.
