For centuries they lived amongst us. The frightful and
wondrous, the angelic and bloodthirsty. Living in a reality
just beyond the Veil, humanityâ€™s myths and legends are
caught in a struggle for their very survivalâ€”against hunters
far more powerful than they are.
Into this struggle has stepped a New England lawyer who once
wanted to be an actorâ€”a man who both longs for the mortal
woman he was to marry and is desperate to rescue the sister
whoâ€™s been taken hostage. Neither hero nor warrior, Oliver
Bascombe now finds himself brandishing a magical sword,
walking in the company of a woman who sometimes appears as a
fox and a man made of pure ice, and dueling with albino
giants and winged killers. For in the world of the
Borderkindâ€”and the realms that exist beyond itâ€”Oliver is
discovering just how vulnerable are humankindâ€™s myths, the
dire consequences of their extinction, and the reason he was
chosen to save them.â€¦
