Elfland is an intimate, sensual novel of peopleâ€”both human
and Aetherialâ€”caught between duty and desire. Itâ€™s a story
of families, and of Rose Fox, a woman born to magic but
tormented by her place in her adopted world.
Led by Auberon
Fox, a group of Aetherialsâ€”call them the Fair Folk, if you
willâ€”live among us, indistinguishable from humans. Every
seven years, on the Night of the Summer Stars, Lawrence
Wilder, the Gatekeeper, throws open all gates to the Other
World. But this time, something has gone wrong. Wilder has
sealed the gates, warning of a great danger lurking in the
realm beyond them. The Aetherial community is outraged. What
will become of them, deprived of the home realm from which
their essential life force flows?
Rose Fox and Sam Wilder are
drawn to the lands beyond the gates, even as their families
feud over Lawrenceâ€™s refusal to do his duty. Struggling with
their own too-human urges, they discover hidden truths that
draw them together in a forbidden alliance. Only by
breaching the dreaded gates and daring the danger beyond can
they confront that which they fear mostâ€”their othernessâ€”and
claim their birthright.
