After squelching an evil plot by a rotten fairy, Keelie Heartwood is ready for fun at the upcoming Wildewood Renaissance Faire. Getting to know her elf dad has been great, but camping out in his homemade RV while acting out the 16th century isn't so fab. Keelie prefers hot showers and wearing a watch, thankyouverymuch. And a cool new cell phone would be nice, too.

But with fairies turning up in the oddest places, an unfortunate misunderstanding about a credit card bill, and that nasty, stuck-up elf-girl, Elia, Keelie's plans to have a good time are all but ruined. So far, life as an elf isn't all that enchanting.

And then the unicorn shows up.

ForeWord Magazine Review – April, 1008
"Into the Wildewood, Gillian Summer's second book in The Faire Folk Trilogy, brings a fresh perspective to the genre with a crackerjack plot and razor sharp writing."

KLIATT Review – July 2008
"Summers' first novel in The Faire Folk Trilogy, The Tree Shepherd's Daughter, is a delightful immersion into the magical forests, mysterious fairy folk, and a teenage protagonist with an attitude as charming as her curly bob. Into the Wildewood retains much the same appeal….A mixture of Clueless and The Two Towers that somehow melds them with style. Summers's book will attract both new fantasy recruits and diehard fans." Cara Chancellor, Hollywood, FL

VOYA Review -- July 2008
"One of the most entertaining aspects of this fantasy trilogy is how the author interweaves the ordinary and fantasy worlds that Keelie inhabits. The book works on two levels, both as a contemporary teen "problem" novel and as a fantasy. Keelie's struggle to understand the nature of her friendship with Laurie is sensitively handled and adds dimension to her character. Fans of similar light "chick fantasy" novels, such as The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones will enjoy Keelie's adventures in the vivid and lively Renaissance Faire setting – Jan Chapman – August, 2008
"Compelling and beautifully written…a great follow-up to an already breathtaking first novel, fans of the series will be very satisfied."
