n this young adult neopagan supernatural fantasy rewrite of Edmund Spenser’s Elizabethan The Faerie Queene, nine young Irish boys in 11th Century Leinster were made precocious through elven magic, and trained as message runners.

Six of the boys were captured as pixies and held in iron cages to be tormented and tortured to death by a ravaging crowd driven to frenzy by a fey terror, leaving three survivors to recapture the blatant Deargbeithíoch, the Dread Beast of 1,000 tongues.

Not all goes to plan. They keep making mistakes. If they fail in their sworn task they are doomed to eternal servitude to the fell sprite Oilill Sceolan, known as Al-il, errant page to Artegal and Caelia, high king and queen of the ancient Tuatha Dé Danann, in their throne room beneath the great towering rock, Sídhe Creig.

About the Author

As an anthropologist, novelist and writer Gil Hardwick is a gifted and imaginative author. Over many years working as a field ethnographer in the vast Australian inland he has met real characters and had real-life adventures, bringing his personalities and his plots to vibrant life. Writing from life, he neither shies away from real social issues and at times confronting dilemmas.

Well worth reading.
