"I shouldn't have to tell you this isn't a fairy story..."

After her parents' car crash ten years before, Amie Wentworth trusts books more than people. She may be a writer, but she believes in reality over fiction. She ignores the unexplained mysteries surrounding her, never mind the dreams of a past life, or the fact she can fry technology with a touch. Not even a timely invitation from her long-lost uncle in England gives Amie incentive for anything other than ire.

Until she is stabbed in an alley and brought back to life by a handsome stranger. Soon Amie is dragged into the very sort of tale she is used to selling. To make matters worse, the man who saved her life keeps turning up and her would-be-murderer is still at large.

After crossing the Atlantic to her father’s homeland, she discovers a world beyond imagining. Silver Hollow is a place of ancient traditions and supernatural dangers, where everything is the opposite of what it seems and few escape sane. Faced with an impossible choice, Amie is forced to confront a deadly family legacy while remembering a life she soon wishes to forget.

**Previously published in 2012. This NEW EDITION has been FULLY REVISED AND EXPANDED. The original novel is now no longer available.**

Amie’s Silver Hollow Survivor Tips 

It is a truth universally acknowledged that an American traveling to England is destined to walk around with stars in her eyes. Americans are suckers for the old country, British accents and actors. My father so-happened to be one of these Brit’s and afternoon teas were bread and butter to me. At least, until I was stabbed, kidnapped and entered another dimension known as the Borderlands. You can enter Silver Hollow, my dad’s ye olde hometown, via the English countryside. Or in my case, jump off a train and have a wizard lead you through with magic. I’ve learned a thing or two since my return to Silver Hollow. Before you visit, you absolutely must abide by the following rules: 

  1. 1. Listen to your guide: I don’t recommend waltzing in without one. Even if your guide borders on rudeness.  
  1. 2. Always be polite, unless they shoot first of course: The citizens of Silver Hollow are old fashioned. Some of them aren’t quite human. Best rule of thumb? Think first, then speak. If you didn’t grow up with a crash-course in gentility via one of my favorite authoresses, here’s a guide! 
  1. 3. Stay away from Unicorns, Pixies, Flobbergidits… just, maybe stay inside unless you have a guide, or conveniently misplaced memories. 
  1. 4. Read: Whether you stay in the village, a noble house or a band of travelers, read as much as you can about local customs. This helped me out so much when communicating with gryphons and gnomes. What Not To Say To A Gnome highly recommended. 
  1. 5. Time: It moves differently in the Borderlands. While the world we know overlaps with the hidden Silver Hollow. A week-long visit may be more like a month-long visit. I learned this the hard way.
