  4. Well.... I should be asking what the best Faery books are!! Steifvater's books don't ship from the Depository for under $20 & lots of the other faery books have 1/2 bad reviews, which, no way.

    I'm buying and sending the book, so if you find another Fantastical Book you like, we can negotiate. I'm pretty flexible. And I couldn't pass up promoting my Fav's. :-D
