Persia left her druggie parents three years ago. Since then she has found work, family, and love with the Outlaws, a theater crew. She thinks she has the perfect life until an enemy comes. He is trying to get the Outlaws shut down and some thrown into prison. Will the outlaws be able to disprove the claims of selling the outlawed fairy dust and drinks, or will they all be forced to escape to the faerie realm? But will even the magical faerie realm hold deep and dangerous things.
"Blood & Flowers" by Penny Blubaugh is a great, fast paced novel. Once I started reading about Persia's life as an outlawed Outlaw I couldn't put the book down. Fans of the Fairy or Faerie) Walker series will enjoy this book. I am eagerly waiting to read more about Persia.
Three years ago, Persia ran away from her drug-addict parents and found a home with the Outlaws, an underground theater troupe. This motley band of mortals and fey, puppeteers and actors, becomes the loving family Persia never had, and soon Persia not only discovers a passion for theater but also falls in love with Nicholas, one of the other Outlaws. Life could not be more perfect.
Until an enemy with a grudge makes an unfair accusation against the group and forces them to flee the mortal world and hide in the neighboring realm of Faerie. But in Faerie, all is not flowers and rainbows—with bloodthirsty trolls, a hostile monarchy, and a dangerous code of magic, the fey world is not quite the safe haven the Outlaws had hoped for. And they must decide what’s more important: protecting their right to perform or protecting themselves.
From critically acclaimed author Penny Blubaugh comes this mesmerizing tale of family, faeries, and finding a place to call home.
