Summary

Sive, ancient goddess of the Fey, is busy watching her world die. Darkness creeps over the Fey world, and its once immortal people and creatures are fading away.

As much as she despises humans, Sive knows that across the Veil that separates the worlds, power can be found. So enlisting the help of her trickster cousin Puck, she tracks down a mortal bard who may just offer hope.

As they watch the child become a man, the brutal and destructive power grows stronger in Sive’s realm, threatening to spread across to the Veil between words. Yet as the young bard finds his own strength, he wrestles with his desires for Sive while struggling against her manipulations and her plans for him. The power of words and magic is at his command, but can Sive find a way master her own nature and persuade William Shakespeare to risk his life to save her world?

The author of The Books of the Order, and the co-author of The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences weaves a tale threaded with magic, love, and the power of creation.
