The Fayre Farre is a world of Kevin's own, a place he's made up from his twisted imagination and bits and pieces of the fantasy novels he's read. Amy agrees to help Kevin save the Fayre Farre, but Kevin's world is as dangerous and violent and confused as its creator. Before she can save his world, she must first save Kevin – a person she doesn't even like.
