Once a feisty redhead who ruled her high school, November Storm has lost her mother, her boyfriend and her mojo—all in one year.
She thinks her life couldn’t get much worse until a mysterious man in an old-fashioned suit complete with a pocket watch shows up on her driveway and kidnaps her, taking her back in time and leaving her stranded in nineteenth-century London. November soon finds out the man has a name—Albert Tempus—and in fact, he’s not a man at all: he’s a Time Faerie, a creature from another dimension who can travel to any time or place in the universe at will.
Albert takes November on a whirlwind journey to his home in Terrafata, a crystal castle in the clouds and even to the future, where she meets her now forty-year-old best friend. Along the way, November learns about the strange world of the faeries, the universe, and of course, herself. She also learns the faeries of Terrafata are in danger: the flowers they use to create the elixir that gives them their powers are dwindling, and many of Albert’s friends are dying. Will November stay to help heal the drought, or will she return to her life as a human forever?
