The Fairy Chronicles®




The timeline of the series, beginning with Marigold and the Feather of Hope and ending with Journey's End, spans ten years. Marigold is nine when the series begins and eighteen when she becomes Aurora's mentor. The final two books of the series form a double, ending bookend because Marigold has a large presence in Aurora and the Lights of Marfa (as she did in Marigold and the Feather of Hope), and the Feather of Hope is a key factor in Journey's End.

Imagine a world without music, paintings, dance, novels, movies, crafts, poetry, sculpture, games, storytelling, magazines, jokes, fashion, stage plays, and architecture: a lackluster world without creative designs, beauty, fun, imaginative ideas, entertainment, artistic inspiration, or variety. The Purple Ibex (basically a fancy purple goat) is the source of all creativity and imagination on earth. Under a terrible curse enacted by the Demon of Dull, the Purple Ibex is slowly dying. If Ginger doesn't find a way to save his life, all artistic and creative endeavors on earth will be lost. Unfortunately, Ginger is the only one who can see the purple creature. Since her friends aren't able to see the Ibex, they all think the goat is only in her imagination, so they are not willing to help look after the sick animal. On her own, Ginger diligently and desperately struggles to care for the Ibex, as all creativity and imagination in the world begins to fade. When nothing she does seems to make a difference, Ginger almost manages to convince herself that the goat is part of her imagination - almost, but not quite. With the help of an undine (a water pixie) named Ren, Ginger's resolve is strengthened. When she doesn't give up, her friends gradually come to her aid. Only with a massive team effort are the fairies able to find a way to break the curse and save the world from an eternity of dullness.

When six fairies are mysteriously trapped in the Hollowness, they can find no way of getting out; and their magic is completely dead and useless to them. Getting no help from a trow, a boggan, and a fachan - also trapped in the Hollowness, and also without the ability to use their own types of magic - the fairies must find something even more valuable and special than fairy magic to help them escape. Events and discoveries that take place in the becalmed area lead the fairies to ponder another mystery - what else the Realm of Hollowness might be.

#45  Eglantine and the Laughing Owl

While exploring in the woods during spring break, Eglantine and her friends hear strange noises coming from an abandoned manor house. What else can the fairies do but investigate? The crumbling manor holds many mysteries, including doorways to other realms. Upon being drawn into the Land of Daini, also known as the Land of Second Chances, the fairies discover the answer to their mystery when they encounter an extinct laughing owl. The owl explains that people are often sent to Daini to retrieve extinct creatures and other items because the Land of Daini is a place where everything that ever existed on earth still exists. However, when the fairies find an alabaster egg that leads them to a magical accordionist, they are sent on an important mission to retrieve something else from the Land of Second Chances. The fairies also survive an encounter with an evil genie who is almost successful in luring them into the realm of NetherSek, a place where fairy powers and magic won't work. During this adventure, the fairies discover the answer to a very old fairy question - What good is a gnarlbeast?

The events of Eglantine and the Laughing Owl play out at the same time as those occurring in The Glass Fairy.
