They don't have dragons where half-faerie Sadie was born--not living ones, anyway--but in the Grove, everyone knows dragon eggs grow on trees like leaves and need Dreams to hatch. Without faerie Dreams, the dragons won't survive. And neither will anyone else.
Brash, boyish sixteen-year-old Sadie uses her half-human status to spy on the human monarchy, who've made it illegal to Dream. But spying is a risky business. Still, Sadie thought she was a pro until they sent a new human magistrate to the Grove. Evelyn.
Evelyn might be the most beautiful girl Sadie's ever seen, and Sadie might be betraying her family by falling in love with the ruthless leader who locks them up. But that's not even the biggest obstacle between the two: Evelyn is leading the charge against Dreaming, and there's something she doesn't know. Sadie can still Dream.
