The world is never what it seems. There are things out there that go bump in the night. The shadows are alive and you never know what sort of strange creatures an all too curious cat might bring in. Take a trip through the incredible with this collection of short stories.
He's dead serious.
Others strive to refresh the magics that built this place. To do so they need the combined magics of all the intelligent species, to renew the ancient balance and compact. There is just one problem. They need a human mage, and dragons systematically eliminated those centuries ago. Their augury has revealed that there is one, and they seek her desperately. Unfortunately, she's fallen in with Fionn, who really doesn't want them to succeed. He has his own reasons and dark designs. The part he hadn't worked out is that she will affect his plans too.
Chaos, roguery, heroism, theft, love, kidnapping, magic and war follow. And more chaos.
