The faeries of the Oak have lost their magic, and live in constant dread of crows, humans, and the dangers of the modern world. But Bryony's boldness sets her apart from her sisters, and when the faery Queen chooses her to be the Oakenfolk's new Hunter, she quickly overcomes her fears and becomes a fierce and dauntless warrior.
Soon Bryony's search for a better weapon brings her into contact with the forbidden human realm in all its perilous beauty, and when she meets a young paraplegic man named Paul, she begins to question everything she has ever believed about humans, faeries, and her own restless heart. Driven by a growing awareness that her people are headed for extinction, she determines to find out the truth about the Oakenfolk's loss of magical power -- a quest which puts her career as a Hunter in jeopardy, tests her courage and resolve to their limits, and ultimately forces her to a painful choice between love and freedom that will change her life, and the lives of her people, forever.
KNIFE is a contemporary YA fantasy full of mystery, adventure and romance, with a fresh take on faeries that is neither cynical nor saccharine.
You're awash in description here but the plot seems a tad undeveloped. The faeries have lost power? Call Con Ed, they'll fix you up. Obvious joke aside, you see you need to explain more about how she's going to tackle the problem and what her dilemma is. What's the down side of success?
