Bawdy leprechauns, nubile woodland nymphs and goblins with a penchant for arson can be a lot to take in, especially when you never imagined that these things could be real.

John Talik didn’t expect his life to change; in fact, he had never really given it much thought. Why would he? When you’ve been living off the winnings of a huge settlement since the age of eighteen and have never had to work, your entire life flies by in a blur of alcohol and wild parties!

Admittedly, at the age of thirty-two, he doesn’t go out nearly as often as his once limitless resources are now painfully dwindling…

…and sure, most of his friends abandoned both him and the night life for full time jobs and budding families…

…but that doesn’t mean that he has to change, right?

Waking in a hospital after an apparent mugging, John is quickly discharged due to a lack of health insurance and sent on his way with only a killer migraine to keep him company. One insulting bus ride, argument with his landlord and rent increase later, and he succumbs to exhaustion after having the worst day of his life and mercifully passes out the moment that his head hits the couch.

When he awakens his headache is gone, but the fairies…the fairies are everywhere.

Suddenly able to perceive the Fae Realm that overlaps our own, his very first interaction with the fair folk leads straight to the insane asylum when his apartment building is burned to the ground by a pack of mischievous goblins that only he can see. Locked away, he is confronted by three gorgeous representatives from The FPI, a little known branch of the Federal Government tasked with maintaining relations between our world and the fairy world that he can now interact with. As the only male ever on record to not only exhibit these abilities, but to do so with a proficiency beyond what even The Agency has seen, he is released into their custody and given the one thing that he has always feared:

A job.
