This is a story about a young boy named Tristran Thorn who had a very mysterious birth. His family lives in a town that borders that land of Faerie. No one crosses the wall that separates these two places, until Tristran goes on a quest to prove his love to a girl from his town. The quest is to find and bring back a fallen star but Tristran becomes very surprised by the adventures that unfold while he is in Faerie.
This book was fantastic. Everything about it attracted me: the story, the writing style, the connections, and everything else. It's beautifully constructed and inspired by a fairy tale. The interconnection, the ghosts, the various magical systems, as well as the contributing factors and mythology, all pique my interest.
