Once Upon a Darker Time

By MJ Bell

Action & adventure, Fantasy, Young adult, Magical realism | Paperback, eBook


Deston Lespérance assumed that once he defied the odds and bested Grossard, the malicious solitary faerie who had imprisoned his parents, he and his family would live ‘happily-ever-after.’ That’s how the stories end in movies, but for Deston it doesn’t seem to work out that way. Fitting in with the fae and learning to access his new found powers is not as automatic as he thought it would be. To make matters worse, he finds out Grossard managed to survive the collapse of the chantry and is now more resolved than ever to destroy his family and the fae. But this time the monster has joined forces with an old adversary, Mordred, and together they intend to uncover the Shard of Erebus and unleash its ultimate darkness onto the earth. Though Deston isn’t sure he’s ready to take on Grossard again, destiny waits for no one, not even the secret Prince of Tir na-nÓg, and ready or not, he’s drawn into a new challenge of locating and destroying the Shard before Grossard and Mordred can find it. With Margaux at his side once again, he heads out on another epic adventure, fully aware the stakes are even higher this time. Never in his wildest dreams, however, could he imagine the sacrifices he’ll be required to make. As his world crumbles around him and his friends fall, the one glimmer of hope he hangs onto is that the fae power and strength truly does reside within him, and that he can actually become the hero the fae claim he is.
