Overview

Most people see the Travelers as a ragged bunch of musicians, artists, and fortunetellers crossing the country in an old double-decker bus, but these magical creatures are actually the Sídhe, the Fair Folk, an ageless, magical race bringing the light of the ancient mysteries to those who are lost.

On an unforgettable night of murder and mayhem, Kathryn meets the Travelers and awakens to her true Fey nature. She and her witchy friend Merrin help the Sídhe find the ones responsible for the bombs, fires, and terror wreaked on the Southside of New Rathmore. Trouble escalates when Robin, son of Puck and Hunter the forest god, is kidnapped. Is Michael Blacker's Fundamentalist Christian cult behind these despicable acts? Can Hunter and the Sídhe rescue Robin before the young god becomes another casualty of this twisted "Inquisition?"

Library Journal
On her birthday, staid and sensible Kathryn succumbs to her friend Merrin's urgings to do something for herself rather than for her husband and his friends. When the two women meet the nomadic musicians and artists collectively known as the Travelers, they soon see them for what they are-the S dhe, or the Fair Folk, who travel back and forth between the modern world and the world of the fae. Complications arise when a reactionary group of Christian fundamentalists led by a charismatic preacher decides that the time has come to rid the world of its freaks and perversions and launch a crusade of terror and violence in the town of New Rathborne. Kathryn and Merrin must find a way to rescue the faerie who has been kidnapped by the fundamenetalists. The Australian author of When I See the Wild God and Witchcraft: Theory and Practice brings her knowledge of witchcraft to life in a stirring story of self-actualization and transformation that should appeal to fantasy readers interested in the occult.
