Written by Mike Carey Art and cover by John Bolton GOD SAVE THE QUEEN is a new hardcover that reunites acclaimed writer Mike Carey (CROSSING MIDNIGHT, LUCIFER) with renowned fantasy painter John Bolton (FABLES: 1001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL, THE SANDMAN PRESENTS: THE FURIES).

Set in both North London and the Faerie kingdom, GOD SAVE THE QUEEN tells the story of a rebellious teenager who falls in with a group of slacker faeries. She discovers that for faeries, the ultimate rush is Red Horse, a drug made from heroin and human blood. It's a dangerous high, and when she gets hooked she's drawn into a civil war that becomes a struggle to the death between Queen Titania and her predecessor, Queen Mab.
