What if fairies were really genetically-engineered human/butterfly hybrids with all the oddities of an insect? Elissa Blue creates a post-apocalyptic world where only the hybrids have survived, and their journey to find love is literally a migration to the Mating Mountain. Once there, if they fail to find a mate before their season ends, they'll be flightless servants in the Old Castle for the rest of their lives.
Though she worried it might never happen, Elissa Blue has finally gotten her wings. Now she has a short window of time to migrate to the Mating Mountain, find a husband, and get back down the impassable cliffs before she loses her ability to fly forever. If she doesn’t succeed, she’ll be stranded as a servant in the Old Castle for the rest of her life. And if she doesn’t choose her man wisely, she might be just as miserable.
