“Beware a mermaid’s wrath!”

The mermaid Soop has sent a flood to Fairy Haven! Water-talent fairy Rani must bring Soop a wand or the Home Tree and all the Never fairies will be swept away. But wise Mother Dove isn’t sure which is worse, a wand or a flood. Wand wishes, tantalizing wand wishes, are risky. The most innocent wish can cause untold trouble. And not even Mother Dove knows that wands have hearts and minds–kind hearts or cruel hearts, sympathetic minds or minds filled with spite and mischief.

Rani, Tinker Bell, and Ree, queen of the Never fairies, set out on a perilous quest for a wand, a journey that takes them across an ocean to the palace of the terrifying Great Wanded fairies. Many obstacles stand between the questers and success: Tink’s disappearance, a mermaid’s magical song, wand madness, and even Never Land itself. Meanwhile, the floodwaters are rising. . . .

In this thrilling sequel to Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, Newbery Honor—winning author Gail Carson Levine has spun a riveting fairy tale about the dangers of dreams coming true. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly R | 2/11/2014

    " Read it cause I love the author. was a bit disappointed. nothing wrong with the book, but I was so mad at the faeries for making so many silly mistakes. the end was sweet. =D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mindy | 2/11/2014

    " My daughter and I LOVED reading this Disney Fairy book! This book was delightful and we LOVED the magical drawings inside as well. (There is a sketch about every chapter that is exquisite! Beautiful artwork to compliment the fairytale theme!) At just under 200 pages, it is a perfect book to read with your children. (We read about five chapters at a time.) OR a fun fairytale to read all on your own. This book transports you into Fairy Haven to join the magic of a fairy adventure and whimsical characters in a most delightful fairytale! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hyla | 2/2/2014

    " This book has a great story about making right and wrong decisions and the consequences your decisions can have. I read this and then reread it right after to my children, one chapter at a time at bedtime. My kids loved the story and I think my eldest was thinking through what was happening. There are a few pictures throughout the book that are wonderful art. I really enjoyed this book and so did my children! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 1/29/2014

    " I just realized I read this a long time ago! Gail Carson Levine is one of my favorite authors! But, lets face it, I have a lot of favorite authors! ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 A Lee | 1/17/2014

    " The trouble these fairies get into and what happens to the mermaids was sad and funny. But I thought it would end with the other fairies coming there to the rescue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chesley | 1/17/2014

    " It was a good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 1/17/2014

    " Fairies must find a wand in order to save Fairy Haven. They come to learn of the lure of a wand's power in the meantime. Beautifully illustrated once again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan Miller | 1/15/2014

    " I'm shocked at how much I liked this book--which is a favorite of my 6-year-old daughter's. As the middle book in a trilogy, it does more than set the scene for the finale--it forces its characters to face real decisions about the intoxication of power (wand madness), the ramifications of choice (especially the choices that affect others), and the responsibilities we have for each other. This is a tremendous morality play disguised as a Disney book. Thank you, Gail Carson Levine, for placing high-quality children's literature into a genre that too often is full of cookie-cutter repetition designed to sell toys. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma | 1/12/2014

    " Oh Come on!!! Everyone has to love the Disney fairies books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Ehlers | 1/2/2014

    " Follow up to Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg. Levine again tells a good story, with fine spins on mermaids and fairies. Better than average juvenile fantasy, even with the familiar caution about getting what you wish for. My daughter says she liked it better than Egg. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kailey | 1/1/2014

    " Fairies are selfish things. Never did like Tinker Bell. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Makaela Rodeback | 12/21/2013

    " this book is sooo good you totely need to read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizzie | 12/10/2013

    " I read this with my daughter and we're hooked! This is the cutest thing I've read with her since, well the last book she had me read. I love authors who can get me hhooked; I ADORE authors who can hook my children! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shantel | 12/3/2013

    " Good children's book "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 11/23/2013

    " I thought we'd really enjoy this, and was sorely disappointed. I don't know if it was just the wrong age for Eowyn, or if it was that we hadn't read the first. Or if we just really preferred the vision of neverland created by Barry and Pearson, but we weren't real fans of this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zoe | 4/10/2013

    " Bought the book for Aoife for Christmas - I never get tired of Gail Carson Levine! Her stories are wonderful. All three kids are enjoying this - we are reading it slowly, just a chapter a night. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 4/3/2013

    " Another cute children's book. One I will save for my boys for later. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alice | 3/29/2013

    " Another Gail Carson Levine fairy book down- one more to go! I LOVED this one. Reading these with my 8 year old daughter has been JOY. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 3/19/2013

    " Reading this with the girls "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 1/26/2013

    " While I enjoyed it, the first one was better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 12/13/2012

    " I listened to this one. I'm not sure if it was the reading or just the book. Maybe it would make a little more sense on paper, but the characters keep interrupting each other and so it was hard to keep track of. But, I enjoyed the storyline and the kids really enjoyed the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krista | 12/6/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl in CC NV | 9/10/2012

    " Better than I expected. Sure the little girls will like the cute pictures, but when big kids read these they'll see good role models having exciting adventures and dealing with issues such as courage, honesty, free will, friendship, and love. "

    " A great book for little and big girls. I really enjoyed it. I imagine it would take a child a few days to read, I finished it in 45 minutes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 12/2/2011

    " Sequel to Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg. It's just as good. Interesting pretext -- what would you wish for if you had a magic wand, and would it turn out to be what you really wanted? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Neil | 9/2/2011
