All Night Awake (Shakespeare in Faerie #2) - Sarah A. Hoyt

A poet with promise and little else, young Will Shakespeare is having a harder time of it in London than he thought he would. Though his contact with the world of faerie has left him with poetry in his blood – and the urgent need to express it – he is overshadowed by the favorite of Elizabeth I: Christopher Marlowe. But Will and his rival have more in common than they think.

They can both trace their creative spark back to the world of faerie, back to the same bed-and now Lady Silver, who loves them both still, has come to London. She has come to track down a creature of supernatural might and vaulting ambition. It wants nothing less than to take control of both worlds.

With the same blend of romance and magic that made Ill Met by Moonlight "a delightful fantastic speculation" (Booklist), Sarah Hoyt offers a new novel about the greatest playwright of all time – and the passions that inspired him.
