At dusk tonight, the Midsummer Eve festivities will begin a time of potent magic in the faery realm. But just what will take place remains a mystery, for every year young Sneezle has fallen asleep. Something wonderful will happen, he knows or perhaps something dreadful and strange, for the faeries have two sides to their natures. Something wonderful, something strange…
