One enchanted moonlit night, Fer saves the life of a big black dog being attacked by wolves. The dog immediately turns into a boy, named Rook, who Fer quickly discovers is not human. But tricksy Rook is just the beginning of Fer's troubles. A gate to the world of the fey has been opened. Fer is drawn there to fulfill her destiny--or dying trying. Winterling is a by-the-seat-of-your-pants adventure full of magical spells, cunning fey creatures, and fearsome strong beasties. Kids who love stories like Fablehaven, The Night Gate, and The Ruby Key will love Winterling.
