Summary
A cynical, paraplegic screenwriter with borderline personality disorder gets recruited to join a secret organization that oversees relations between Hollywood and Fairyland in the first book of a new urban fantasy series from debut author Mishell Baker. Millie is a bit of a mess: she's cynical, disabled, and self-destructive. And she has borderline personality disorder. So she's a little confused as to why she's been recruited for a top-secret agency that oversees deals between Hollywood icons and fairy muses. Even though this hidden, fantasy Hollywood isn't exactly wheelchair-accessible, Millie is determined to ace her first assignment and not let her mental illness get the best of her. But when her first routine mission takes an unexpected and dangerous turn, Millie finds herself hip-deep in some of the scariest situations Fairyland has on offer--and she may not make it out in one piece ..

Summary
Los Angeles-based filmmaker Millie, paraplegic and institutionalized following a suicide attempt, receives an unusual job offer from Caryl, a representative of the Arcadia Project, a nonprofit organization that arranges gainful employment for individuals with mental health issues. What this actually means, Millie learns when she accepts the job, is that she's to serve as a liaison between Hollywood and Fairyland. Her first assignment? Track down a missing actor who also happens to be a Seelie Court noble. With its tough-yet-vulnerable heroine, gritty supernatural-inflected setting, and intricate fae politics, this debut may appeal to fans of Seanan McGuire's October Daye series. -- Description by Gillian Speace
