Summary: From a young age, Charles hasn't been like most fairies. His curiousity for what lies beyond the walls of the garden sets him apart from the other children, but also means he finds friends in the unlikeliest of creatures - humans, the one thing every fae child is told to fear most. But then the day comes where he goes over the walls, and it is there that he falls in love with a boy named Erik, that he learns the tragedy of a fairy's love that can never be returned and discovers the truth of the curse that plagues their town. Because there is magic in the world, but also darkness, and no amount of years can change a fairy's heart.
