Long ago it was, yet not so long ago that I cannot remember...
In every corner of the world we dwell, obscured from human eyes. From before the
time of human legend we have endured. You call us Elves, Fairies, the Fair Folk,
angels, and demons; we call ourselves the Sidhe.
We are warriors. We are priestesses and priests. We are healers. We are teachers.
We are the guardians of the cave. We are the Lords of the Mists. We are the storytellers.
We are the Weavers; we are the Web.
So begins the saga of the Tuatha Dé Danann, the People of Dah’nu, which tells the
very first story ever told. Herein lies the creation of the Sidhe, the starting point
for a million years of mystery, tragedy, and magic.
The First Age was the age of the Capercaille, the lemur-like ancestors of the Sidhe,
who lived in complete harmony with the Gra. For millions of years, they played and
loved on the island of Annwn, until one fateful night when the Ast’ir Mah’rhi fell
from the sky and changed the history of the world forever. GET IT!!!
The door is open…come hear the tale of the greatest blessing ever bestowed upon the
world…and the greatest curse.
Welcome to the magical, mysterious, heroic, tragic, and hauntingly familiar world
of the Sidhe. In The Queen's Rune and Other Tales of the Sidhe, Shannon Avery takes
readers on a mystical journey through the millennia-old culture of humanity's closest
cousins. The original tale of the Garden of Eden unfolds in epic poetry; a lonely
"vampire" sings of her pain; the Sidhe Merlyn defies his Queen and his beloved to
win one last battle and become the first of the Forsaken Ones. Through it all winds
the lyrical artwork of fantasy artist Danae Bentley. GET IT!!
