Free (Kindle) Tree Shepherd's Daughter by Gillian Summers [YA Urban Faerie Fantasy]
The Tree Shepherd's Daughter by Gillian Summers is 1st in her Faire Folk Trilogy of YA fantasy novels involving elves and Renfaires, a concept which I've rather liked ever since reading Mercedes Lackey & Ellen Guon's Knight of Ghosts and Shadows, which incidentally is available free on Baen's bundled Invasion CD over at The Fifth Imperium, but then I'm a sucker for historical recreationism anyway. This particular take on it is free courtesy of publisher Flux, which IIRC is an imprint of Llewellyn who've been giving us those Midnight Ink mystery freebies.
Currently free @ Amazon UK (likely to drop in the main store). Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be one of the titles that Llewellyn will be passing out to multiple stores.
When her mother dies, fifteen-year-old Keelie Heartwood is forced to leave her beloved California to live with her nomadic father at a renaissance festival in Colorado. After arriving, Keelie finds men in tights and women in trailer trash-tight bodices roaming half-drunk, calling each other lady and lord even after closing time! Playacting the Dark Ages is an L.A. girl’s worst nightmare.
Keelie has a plan to ditch this medieval geekland ASAP, but while she plots, strange things start happening—eerie, yet familiar. When Keelie starts seeing fairies and communicating with trees, she uncovers a secret that links her to a community of elves. As Keelie tries to come to grips with her elfin roots, disaster strikes, and Keelie’s identity isn’t the only thing that’s threatened.
One part human determination and one part elfin magic, Keelie Heartwood is a witty new heroine in a world where fantasy and reality mix with extraordinary results.
