Faerie Magpie Windwitch is the daughter of a faerie and the Elemental Wind. She and her constant companions of ravens travel the world saving spells, finding objects to take back from those who stole them and most important of all, capturing devils that are freed from their bottles by mannies (humans). Magpie and company find a bottle void of all life as if the devil escaped, but no signs of a devil walking. From official release/information:
From back of book: It's been 25,000 years since faeries imprisoned all the devils in silver bottles and cast them adrift in the seas. These creatures have drifted, ravenous and vengeful, all these long years...until now. Humans are fishing the bottles up and uncorking them, accidentally freeing the devils back into the world. Magpie's kin live unaware deep in their forest of Dreamdark.
It's up to Magpie to travel the world with her gang of crows and recapture devils as fast as humans can free them. But when the powerful Blackbringer is loosed to unmake the world, she may be in over her head.
