Sarah is an aspiring writer, and despite her father's disapproval resolves to pursue that goal through college after an unexpected token from Jareth appears in her room one evening. After she begins to have vivid dreams of the Underground, an eventual confrontation with its King is inevitable - and informative. Sarah learns many things about the fae realms, and even how her work can affect them for the better... but both she and Jareth are playing a perilous game, and it may be that neither fully understands the stakes.
