In Fairies & Demons, renowned elficologist Edouard Brassey invites you to spend a year in the bewitching Land of Faerie, meeting the good and evil denizens of the magical otherworld.
In the fabulous procession of magical spirits that mark the cycle of the seasons, spring faeries follow the enchanted roundel of imps and elves. On sultry summer nights, hapless mortals are prey to the deceptions of undines, ravishing mermaids and dangerous nixies. Languid summer makes way for the infernal dance of the evil spirits of autumn, a witches'' Sabbath attended by kobolds, succubi and nightmare spirits. From Earth's lower depths come the rumblings of armies of dwarves and gnomes preparing to burst out to the surface. Winter follows, the season when the Nordic gods sweep through on their doomed hunt for Asgard, harbingers of Christmas visitors attended by the nisses and tomtes of the Great North. Still farther north, Earth trembles beneath the footsteps of giant trolls.
A spellbinding book, superbly illustrated by enchanting and sometimes terrifying images, that must surely rank as a passport to the Enchanted Kingdom.
