The Good Fairies of New York by Martin Millar

The Good Fairies of New YorkGet ready for a wild ride with The Good Fairies of New York by Martin Millar. First there is Heather and Morag, Scottish thistle fairies, that only wanted to start the first radical fairy punk rock but end fugitives fleeing to New York. Then there is their task of matching an overweight disgruntled inept violinist with a beautiful free-spirited artist who has pledged her life to complete her flower alphabet to beat out her ex-boyfriend’s production of a Midsummer Night’s Dream in a local community art contest. Unfortunately Heather's and Morag's attempt at this creates havoc with the Italian, Chinese and African New York fairies. Meanwhile back in England, Aelric the leader of the Cornish Fairy Resistance Movement is trying to sabotage the oppressive leadership of Tala, the Fairy King of Cornwall, who by the way, is setting forth an invasion on New York. During all of this we also have a delusional bag lady that always happens to be in the wrong or right place depending on how you want to look at it as well as a ghost of a dead rocker who is trying to track down his lost guitar. All I can say is...whew!!
