When Bea uncovers a terrifying secret she has a chance to save a young girl from a terrible fate - marrying a handsome King. But risking the wrath of GenAm and the terrifying three headed Beast is a little more action than she'd hoped for. Can a wannabe Fairy Godmother do bad to make good on her word?
Buttercup Snowblossom goes by the name Bea. Buttercup is a fairy name, and Bea wants to be taken seriously. So far, however, the only person who seems to be taking Bea seriously is her landlord, a drunken gnome, and only then because he wants her rent. Life as cabbage fairy in the big city is not what Bea imagined it would be.
When Bea ran away from home, she was certain she would find success in the city. She was convinced she would be snapped up by the General Administration, whizzed through training, and be a Fiction Management Executive (godmother class) before her first year was out. Before she knew it, she'd be in the human world, running stories and making a name for herself.
But that was then, and this is now.
Five years later, and Bea is nothing more than a plot-watcher, a skivvy for the real story-tellers. And so, bored and frustrated, Bea begins to take matters into her hands, making little changes to the stories. Nothing big, nothing serious, nothing that would get her into trouble. Well... until this last change, anyway...
Even Bea can see that making a giant wall of thorns grown up around a castle might be a bit more that a little change. And now it's the middle of the night, and there's a loud banging on her door...
