Elora needs a sacrifice. What she gets is love.
Elora, the young princess of the Dark Faeries, plans to overthrow her tyrannical mother, the Dark Queen, and bring equality to faeriekind. All she has to do is convince her mother's loathed enemy, the Bright Queen, to join her cause. But the Bright Queen demands an offering first: a human boy who is a "young leader of men."
Enter seventeen-year-old Taylor, an exile in his own home. Unable to forgive himself for the accident that took his little brother's life, he has spent the past year living in the carriage house above his parents' garage to distance himself from his deteriorating family. When Taylor meets Elora, who he believes to be a runaway, he senses a kindred spirit and lets her crash in his room. Elora is overjoyed that she may have found her sacrifice so quickly . . . until she finds herself falling in love with Taylor.
