Guardian of the Green Hill

Laura L. Sullivan

Square Fish

Only a few weeks ago, Meg Morgan and her siblings went to England for the holidays—and found themselves in the middle of a fairy war. Now the war is over, but the battle for control of the fairies has just begun.
A mysterious painter named Gwidion appears at the Rookery, ready to give the children art lessons. But his real plans are far more sinister: He means to destroy the Guardian of the Green Hill, the woman who keeps the peace between fairies and humans.
Meg knows nothing of the evil artist’s plans, but she is beginning to understand that she might be the only one who can become Guardian when her great-great aunt’s time is over. Yet Meg is just a girl—surely she has plenty of time before she must decide whether she wants to take on such an enormous role.
Then someone she loves is stolen by fairies, and no one but Meg can get him back. . . .


Read an Excerpt

She Will Be My Creature

MORE SKIN THAN FLESH, more bones than skin, the artist hunched over his easel. He added shading under the eyes and thickened the hair, then growled in disgust. It was still nothing like her, nothing like what he wanted her to be. The eyes were only wistful, not yet weak and sorrowful. The round chin looked too strong.… It would never tremble. Even the short curling silver hair looked too tidy, nothing like the unkempt locks of one given up to despair. And that is how he needed Phyllida Ash—hopeless, self-pitying, cringing, and powerless.


Praise for Guardian of the Green Hill

"The imagery is superb and the folklore well written." —VOYA

"With rich language and an abundance of interesting characters, Sullivan continues the story of the Morgan siblings and their friends as they navigate the exciting and dangerous crossover between the human and fairy worlds. Sullivan’s writing has a timelessness that contrasts nicely with Meg’s distinctly modern ideas and weaves a compelling story that will pull readers along." —School Library Journal

"The magic and mysticism are fascinating." —Children's Literature

"Set in a bygone landscape of hedgerows, half-timbered cottages and horse-drawn carts and teeming with creatures of faerie lore, this sequel offers a serious heroine with 'steel at [her] core,' who discovers fairyland is not for the faint of heart." —Kirkus Reviews
