Description


Cabernet would give almost anything to be remembered--except his freedom.


Cursed to be eternally forgotten, Cabernet grew up walking a dangerous, lonely line between the world of mankind and the world of fairy. Now known only by a faceless reputation as a rogue and a fairy aficionado, he wanders ceaselessly with the cat Maugrim as company.


Then the king dares order him to eliminate a magical foe in northern waters, and threatens to attack fairy lands if Cabernet refuses. As an increased annoyance, he is saddled with a stiff naval officer, the king's elderly personal advisor, and the advisor's nurse, a charming young woman named Rosemary who can inexplicably remember him.


Cabernet wants to complete this mission quickly without actually facing the enemy, a dangerous enchantress who nearly killed him before. But sea perils and fearsome monsters blindside his every trick and turn. Moreover, he is somehow growing fiercely attached to the human tag-a-longs.


As the enchantress's deadly net tightens around them, Cabernet must face the terrors of his past in order to save his new-found family--and future.


Enjoy this standalone YA fantasy that combines dark whimsy with fairy tale magic, plus a side of Oliver Twist and an enchanting romantic subplot.
