“What an absolutely delightful follow-up to Emily Wilde’s first faerie adventure! The Faeries’ nonsensicality and bizarre behavior made this book feel like old fairytales in the best way. I would read about Emily’s adventures forever!”

Staff Reviews

"Emily Wilde's Map of the Otherlands by Heather Fawcett follows Emily and Wendell on yet another fantastical adventure filled with faeries and folklore. On this latest adventure, Emily and Wendell are searching for a door back to Wendell's realm, all the while Emily is trying to complete a map of the faerie realms...and avoid the assassins sent after Wendell.

I adored the Encyclopedia of Faeries, and the sequel did not disappoint! Heather Fawcett gives us a cozy, mystery fantasy that immerses us in a truly delightful world. Her descriptive writing style and narration (and yes, the footnotes!) make this series so fun and enjoyable to read. The journal entry style of the chapters is unique and refreshing for this genre.

Emily is one of my favorite characters - she is a brilliant academic and unapologetically herself. The banter between her and Wendell had me both swooning and cackling. The way we saw how their relationship progressed in this book was perfect for the overall tone and fit in well with the other plotlines. I also really enjoyed getting to know our new side characters - they were written just as well as our two mains!

Overall, the Emily Wilde series will hit all the right notes in the cozy fantasy genre. I was smiling the entire time I read this - you will want to pick this up!"--Reviewed by Hannah

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • When mysterious faeries from other realms appear at her university, curmudgeonly professor Emily Wilde must uncover their secrets before it’s too late, in this heartwarming, enchanting second installment of the Emily Wilde series.

Emily Wilde is a genius scholar of faerie folklore who just wrote the world’s first comprehensive encyclopaedia of faeries. She’s learned many of the secrets of the Hidden Ones on her adventures . . . and also from her fellow scholar and former rival Wendell Bambleby. 

Because Bambleby is more than infuriatingly charming. He’s an exiled faerie king on the run from his murderous mother and in search of a door back to his realm. And despite Emily’s feelings for Bambleby, she’s not ready to accept his proposal of marriage: Loving one of the Fair Folk comes with secrets and dangers. 

She also has a new project to focus on: a map of the realms of faerie. While she is preparing her research, Bambleby lands her in trouble yet again, when assassins sent by his mother invade Cambridge. Now Bambleby and Emily are on another adventure, this time to the picturesque Austrian Alps, where Emily believes they may find the door to Bambleby’s realm and the key to freeing him from his family’s dark plans.

But with new relationships for the prickly Emily to navigate and dangerous Folk lurking in every forest and hollow, Emily must unravel the mysterious workings of faerie doors and of her own heart.

“Like all good fairy tales, this book is enchantingly charming, with hints of razor-sharp teeth. My only complaint is that it ends; I want to live in Emily’s Otherlands forever.”—Kiersten White, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Mister Magic
