Ella has felt different all her life, with her pale, almost translucent skin, wild hair, pointed ears and gangly limbs. Her father has wanted nothing to do with her since her mother's death, and her grandparents hide her away from the world. Then Ella discovers that she really is different. She is a Flitterwig: a human with fairy blood. With the help of some special spectacles, Ella can suddenly see the Magicals-pixies, fairies, troggles, imps and other magic creatures-and learns that it is her destiny to help restore the kingdom of Magus. A fabulously inventive, funny and exciting story.

My auntie was the author of this book so you could say I'm biassed but I loved this book top to bottom. A warming story excecuted almost perfectly. My brother got to pre-read the new one (not Clearheart, there is a new one) and he also came up with the story which Edrei came up with.
