Over the centuries the Faerie Realms have drifted away from the mortal world. But for some, the Doors will open. For some, there is a Way to travel there, if they want it badly enough.If they dream it hard enough.In this era, only lovers, poets, and madmen can access the Realms of the Land-and for good reason.A succession of mortals travel to Faerie: a veteran seeking beauty; a magus seeking power; an urchin seeking his wayward father; an engineer seeking meaning. These mortals bring the horrors of our age to the Land, and the Folk who live there respond in kind.

"In this beautifully imagined novel, Franks tells a story viscerally graphic, emotionally moving and very, very sharp." -- Kaaron Warren "Franks has delivered a dark fantastical history of staggering imagination, written like a fable, delivered like a punch. Powerful and engrossing stuff." -- Alan Baxter
