Remember the fairy stories you were told when you were a child? Tales of tiny, magical, winged beings and elves, wicked witches and goblins. Demons... What if one day you found they were true? What if, when you became an adult, you discovered they were all based on fact. What if you met the fantasy and it was all too real? That's what happened to Thom Kindred. The wonders were revealed to him. But so were the horrors, for not far behind the Good, there always lurks the Bad. And the Bad had designs on Thorn. The Bad would show him real evil.show more

Review Text

Once upon a time there were faeries living in the woods of Castle Bracken. This is the story of Thom Kindred who returns to his childhood home in the woods to recuperate from an almost fatal heart attack. There are many mysteries for Thom to solve, including his heritage, friends who are not all they seem to be and, of course, the faerefolkis themselves. A wonderful read which shows Herbert to be a master of high fantasy as well as horror. Take heed, however, that this book is not for the squeamish or the easily offended as it contains bad language, sexually explicit material and horror of the Herbert kind. (Kirkus UK)show more
