'One prank too many. That's all it takes to get Faela, a mischievous pixy, nearly banished from the Faerie Realm. Whether tantalizing goblins, enchanting flowers, or enraging an entire Irish town with her magical mayhem, Faela can test the mettle of even the most patient fairy. Her friend Scuff warned her not to taunt the 'big-folk'. But what does a ‘gnome' know?

Hauled before the High Court, King Auberon gives Faela a final chance to redeem herself: become a 'house fairy' to the home of a widower blacksmith, and restore 'courage and joy' to his timid little daughter Elsie. Of course, no one knows that Elsie has the 'gifted sight', the ability to 'see' fairies. Not even Scuff, sent as the king's spy, whom Faela accidentally merges into the family dog!

But Faela wants to experience love and merriment as a ‘big-folk’. Attracted to the former-beau of Elsie's older sister, she 'pixylates' the young woman's body to dance with him at a summer fair. Will Faela's romantic distractions lead her astray?

And then there's the Pooka, a sinister shape-shifting goblin who will spare no wickedness to see Faela's mission fail. For the Pooka has claim over any banished fairy, and he has his heart set on Faela as his latest pixy-bride.’
