Blog Tour: The Boy Who Lost Fairyland + GIVEAWAY!

The Fairyland series is headed in an exciting direction! 

A young troll named Hawthorn is stolen from Fairyland by the Golden Wind, and becomes a changeling in our world, a place no less bizarre than Fairyland in his eyes. Left with a human family in Chicago, Hawthorn struggles with his troll nature and his changeling fate. 

When he turns twelve, he stumbles upon a way back home, to a Fairyland changed. An Endless Summer lies upon the land; powerful Fairies want to claim the world again—and rumors fly through the capital that ancient King Goldmouth is awakening with a terrible hunger. Hawthorn finds himself at the center of a changeling revolution—until he comes face to face with a beautiful young Scientiste with very large and ungainly feet and a mole on her left cheek, and a very big, very red assistant.

This has to be one of my favorite MG series. I am really looking forward to meeting Hawthorne (what a wonderful name for a character...almost as good as September). Rumor has it that we may even come across a familiar Wyvern in this story. I can hardly wait.

I am really looking forward to seeing if our favorite wyverary is included in this story. He's the best.

While I was initially sad to see this isn't about September, I am intrigued to meet Hawthorne. SO EXCITED!

I'm not sure what to expect from this one, but I definitely want to see A-through-L again so I hope he is in it.
