Our time has almost come, and we must leave this world and travel to Elysse. If we stay longer we shall perish . . . ife is changing for Midge, and she has little time to think about the extraordinary events of last summer. Her discovery of the hidden tribes is like a dream to her now, their existance all but forgotten. But the voice that calls out to her in the winter darkness one night is real enough, and the hand that comes rapping against her bedroom window cannot be ignored. This is no dream. The Various have returned, and their desperation has made them all the more dangerous. . . he only way Midge can help the little people is by tracing the whereabouts of her reat-great-aunt Celandine. But Celandine must be lon dead, surely? In this final part of Steve Augarde's enthralling trilogy, we see how the past and present are connected, the interwoven threads drawing the reader on towards an astonishing series of revelations. A story of danger and magic, friendships and betrayals, this is fantasy writing at its very best.
