Jane Hays has been told all her life that it’s dangerous to be out in the forest past sundown. At fifteen, she’s quite sure that it’s all old wives’ tales… yet, why does her village bar the gates every night? Why do they even have gates? When she is caught in an unexpected rainstorm on her way home, Jane ignores all the warnings and seeks shelter in a cottage in the middle of the forest. Soon, she is caught up in a world of magic and beauty—and in the storm of the Fairy Queen’s wrath.
The Fairy Queen is out for blood. There have been intruders—human intruders—in her domain and she will stop at nothing to find them and kill them. After all, it is only fair. She is only seeking retribution for the death that humans leave in their wake.
But Jane isn’t all that she seems to be. And the events of the night aren’t as innocent as they appear.
A tale of magic, fairy creatures and family, Coexist is a novella for the young and the young-at-heart.
"I’d recommend this book to anyone, of any age, who is looking for a sweet story of love and intrigue, but most especially the young adult crowd who love the genre. It is a delightful way to spend an afternoon." ~ Ann Shannon, Amazon review
"Anna Tan has created a wonderfully delightful tale for middlegrade readers on up. There is the element of magic, of creatures from myths, and lacks a time barrier to its magic. Well written in a soft voice, the intrigue is there, but the deadly violence is not." ~ Dianne, Tome Tender Book Blog
