A cynical, disabled film director with borderline personality disorder gets recruited to join a secret organization that oversees relations between Hollywood and Fairyland in the first book of a new urban fantasy series from debut author Mishell Baker. A year ago, Millie lost her legs and her filmmaking career in a failed suicide attempt. Just when she’s sure the credits have rolled on her life story, she gets a second chance with the Arcadia Project: a secret organization that polices the traffic to and from a parallel reality filled with creatures straight out of myth and fairy tales. For her first assignment, Millie is tasked with tracking down a missing movie star who also happens to be a nobleman of the Seelie Court. To find him, she’ll have to smooth-talk Hollywood power players and uncover the surreal and sometimes terrifying truth behind the glamour of Tinseltown. But stronger forces than just her inner demons are sabotaging her progress, and if she fails to unravel the conspiracy behind the noble’s disappearance, not only will she be out on the streets, but the shattering of a centuries-old peace could spark an all-out war between worlds. No pressure.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Arden Hammersmith ably captures Millie’s many moods…Hammersmith skillfully uses her versatile voice to portray Millie’s co-workers, mental cases all. Notable characters include a little Southern woman, a taciturn black man, and an angry Latino whom Millie is drawn to…Through Hammersmith’s narration, Millie ultimately develops into an engaging character who heralds a fascinating new series.” AudioFile
Borderline is world-building at its most original.” Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Fully articulated, flawed, and fascinating characters combine with masterly urban fantasy storytelling…[A] beautifully written story that is one part mystery, one part fantasy, and wholly engrossing.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
