Wishful Thinking
Helen Harper. Harperfire, $14.99 trade paper (270p) ISBN 978-1-913116-22-4
The humorous first urban fantasy in Harper’s How to Be the Best Damn Faery Godmother in the World (or Die Trying) series introduces an enchanting world where faeries work in a cutthroat corporate hierarchy. Spunky Saffron Sawyer is the best dope faery in England, using her talents to give clients magical “happy drug dreams,” but she’s always aspired to join the renowned ranks of the Faery Godmothers. After she’s invited to be a Godmother out of the blue (after applying and being rejected several times), bullies, brownnosers, and an authoritarian Director make her life in the stuffy office miserable. When Saffron learns that someone is kidnapping Godmothers and mailing their body parts to the office, she realizes she was only hired to be bait for the kidnappers. Drawing on her street smarts, drug-world connections, and tenacity, she rallies her reluctant office mates into action to rescue the missing Godmothers—but first she must grant a wish to her client, a teenage boy looking for his birth father. Harper (the Blood Destiny series) delights with a quick-thinking heroine, an alluring love interest in the form of the Devil’s Advocate (the most powerful faery in England), playful worldbuilding, and slapstick comedy. Readers are sure to be charmed. (Self-published)
