Ill Met by Moonlight (Shakespeare in Faerie #1) - Sarah A. Hoyt

A world not of this world but in it – where a transparent palace hangs suspended in mid-air and tiny fairies twinkle here and there... where a traitorous king holds court before elven lords and ladies... and where fantastical tragedies and capricious romances reach out to entangle mortal souls...


William Shakespeare.

This enchanting fantasy debut begins with the disappearance of young Will Shakespeare's wife and newborn daughter – a mystery that draws the Bard into a realm beyond imagination... and beyond reality. Held captive by the devious ruler of the elves and fairies, Shakespeare's family appears lost to him forever. But an alluring elf named Quicksilver takes a fancy to Shakespeare – and sees a chance to set things right.

Can a mere schoolteacher win his wife back from a king? Or will Shakespeare fall prey to his own desires – and the cunning schemes of the unpredictable elf?
