All are welcome to the launch of Return of the Starchild by Catriona Murphy.
Iliana lives in Walker’s Fall, England and longs to escape her abusive adoptive father to find her real family. When a fight breaks out between Iliana and her father, she knocks him unconscious due to, her surprise, magick shooting out from her finger. Even worse, a dark creature then appears in her town and tries to kill her.
With the help of a cast of fantastical characters, she is whisked away into the Otherworld. Where faeries guard gates to other domains, a mad queen reigns, wild bandits roam freely and people can do terrible magick. Iliana finds herself chased continuously by an unknown enemy in a foreign world, and is forced to trust no one yet question everything she knows about herself.
She embarks on a treacherous journey of discovery. But will she find her real family and learn the extent of her newfound gifts, or will the dark creatures of the Otherworld destroy her first?
