Does the programme 'Hoarders' fill you with horror? Can you imagine what it would be like to grow up in a hoarded house? Here is one true story from an adult child of a hoarder who finds herself having to re-visit the house where she grew up, only it has now become far, far worse than it ever was. Facing her demons, Izabelle has to make the house 'safe' for her hoarder father to return home from hospital while her father does his utmost to stop her throwing anything away from his hospital bed.
Eighteen-year-old private investigator Veronica Dye is only trying to make some quick cash when she agrees to take on a seemingly routine missing person case. But when her client turns out to be a fugitive from the kingdom of the faerie, Veronica must use all of her wits to survive the night of the faerie moon.
After a bungled investigation leaves her desperate to recover lost wages, Veronica believes her prayers have been answered when a handsome young man dressed in outlandish, outdated clothing and seemingly unacquainted with contemporary customs appears in the offices of Dye Investigations seeking help. Sebastian Avery, though, is an enigma. A human being reared in the realm of the faerie, he is a man without an identity. Stolen from his crib as a baby, he has lived eighteen years as a servant in the faerie realm, a minstrel satisfying the faeries’ craving for human emotions with melancholy songs that express a longing for his lost life. When he takes the daring leap through the mystical barrier that separates the faerie realm from Earth, Sebastian arrives a stranger in a home he has never known. To retrieve his lost life, he must locate his double, the evil changeling that was left in his crib in his place. Yet he has only hours to accomplish his mission for at midnight, beneath the intense glow of the unnaturally large faerie moon, the faeries will be able to cross the enchanted barrier and will come to take him back.
