Maeve has lived with her aunt in Britain for ten years, developing a special gift for gentling difficult animals. When she accompanies a skittish horse to Sevenwaters by sea, she must confront her demons. For this is her first return home since she was crippled and scarred by a fire at ten years old.

Maeve finds Sevenwaters in turmoil. The forest surrounding her father’s keep also has uncanny inhabitants, including a community of Fair Folk. Innocent travellers have disappeared on the border of her father’s land, and now their bodies are reappearing in bizarre circumstances. Lord Sean sees in this the hand of the fey prince Mac Dara. How can he be stopped? What human army can defeat a force with magic at its fingertips?

When Maeve discovers the body of one of the missing men, she and her enigmatic small brother, Finbar, are drawn into a journey where the stakes are high: they may bring about the end of Mac Dara’s reign, or suffer a hideous death. For Maeve, success may lead to a future she has not dared to believe possible.

“So it isn’t a true story,” Finbar said. He spoke flatly, as if unsurprised to find that happy endings exist only in the imagination.

Before I could say anything, Ciarán spoke. “Ah! I did not say that at all. Perhaps the events of the story did once happen just as I told them. And perhaps not. A story may be pure imagining, yet at the same time be truer than fact. A tale exists in as many forms as there are folk to hear it.”

“I might see if my father has emerged from his meeting with Lord Sean.” He lifted my hand and turned his lips to my palm, where the scars were. “Until later,” he said, and was gone.
