Screenwriter and noted film critic C. Robert Cargill continues the story begun in his debut, Dreams and Shadows, in this bold and brilliantly crafted tale involving fairies and humans, magic and monsters
Six months have passed since the wizard Colby lost his best friend to an army of fairies from the Limestone Kingdom, a realm of mystery and darkness beyond our own. But in vanquishing these creatures and banning them from Austin, Colby sacrificed the anonymity that protected him. Now word of his deeds has spread, and powerful enemies from the past-including one Colby considered a friend-have resurfaced to exact their revenge.
As darkness gathers around the city and time runs out, Colby has to turn to forces even darker than those he once battled for aid.
C. Robert Cargill takes us deeper into an extraordinary universe of darkness and wonder, despair and hope to reveal the magic and monsters around us . . . and inside us.
|Review Quote*||"[T]his is a fantasy about mythmaking, learning the uses of power, and living with the consequences of one's behavior. Recommended for readers of Lev Grossman's Magicians series and Neil Gaiman's adult contemporary fantasies." (Library Journal on QUEEN OF THE DARK THINGS)|
