Will Hughes, the alluringfour-hundred-year-old vampire who tasted her blood and saved her life, couldhelp, but he’s disappeared. Garet believes he’s in France, searching for theSummer Country, the legendary land of the Fey where he might be freed from hisvampire curse.
Desperate to understand herlegacy, Garet follows Will. In Paris, she encounters strange, mythic beings –an ancient botanist metamorphosed into the city’s oldest tree, a gnome wholives beneath the Labyrinth at the Jardin des Plantes, a dryad in theLuxembourg Gardens – meetings that convince her she is on the right path.
But Garet is not the only onetrying to find the way in to the Summer Country – and the closer she gets, themore dangerous it becomes…
