About The Year King by Mareth Griffith
Explore a hidden world of modern fairies, ancient evils, and recently-unemployed telemarketers
A 19-year-old Dubliner working a dead-end office job, Ivy Gallagher has finally moved out of her terrible apartment and into a posh neighborhood out of town. The rent’s cheap, the location’s beautiful, and her new flat-mate, Demi, is only moderately weird. So what if the house is packed with exotic plants or she can’t even touch Demi’s cookware?
But after two strangers visit the house, Demi vanishes, leaving Ivy with a lengthy folder of plant-care instructions and the suspicion that her flatmate is in serious trouble. Turns out, Demi’s not only a weird roommate—she’s also a runaway fairy king, in a society where the kingship is little more than a death sentence. Only one previous king has ever survived longer than a year. Ivy would love to ask him how he did it. Trouble is, he’s been missing for decades.
It’s up to Ivy to find both vanished kings, as she enters a hidden Dublin both magical and murderous, one that may have deep connections to Ivy’s own family. Can she save Demi without losing herself?
