Overview

The ancient ballads of England, Scotland and Ireland are great stories to visit but nobody in their right mind would want to live there. There�s a high body count for every ballad and a happy ending usually involves boy meets girl and they end up sharing a grave. The musicians who go to retrieve the songs, with the help of the magic banjo, Lazarus, know this, but the fact is, the songs also contain a great deal of magic useful in defeating the devils who are out to dehumanize humanity by stealing the music. The Queen of the Fairies, aka the Debauchery Demon, Torchy Burns, makes them a deal they can�t refuse and the reluctant heroes find themselves thrust into the lives and deaths of ballad people they know are going to end badly. It�s enough to make a picker take up accounting!
