The faeries of the Oak are dying, and it’s up to a lone faery named Linden to find a way to restore their magic.

Synopsis: From Amazon
As I turned, Mad Dog shouted, "Hattie - RUN!" Shadowy figures were filling the room. The graffiti on the walls wasn't graffiti at all - it was real people, throwing strange animal shadows and now it looked like they were peeling off the walls. One of them was already on the stairs behind Mad Dog, while around me lizard and panther shadows were turning into humans. Hattie Jackson is just an ordinary fifteen-year-old - until her mother disappears and Hattie's life is turned upside down. With the help of her friend Mad Dog, Hattie discovers the truth about her mother's 'other life' and the role she must now take on to defeat a terrifying army of evil Ninjutsu warriors, led by Praying Mantis - the most deadly assassin of all ... A thrilling page-turner by an exciting new author.
We have just had the second book in the series into the library. But guess what? We don't have the first book. It drives me nuts when this happens. Be eternally grateful to get the first in the series so the books can go out on the shelves [ : D ]
