In Sylvalan, a witch hunt is in full force. As witches and innocents are brutally murdered, magic disappears from the land, and the roads between the worlds of humans and of faery vanish one by one. Ari's family has tended one of the Old Places for generations, keeping the magic alive and the land lush and fertile. But with the midsummer moon, Ari's life changes dramatically. She unknowingly takes a Fae lover, the Lord of the Sun, and immediately becomes suspect to faery nobility, who neither trust nor mingle willingly with humankind, except for the occasional caprice. But Ari's life and the future of the Fae depend upon the nobles' willingness to change their elitist ways. For the inquisitor Adolpho--the Witch's Hammer--has come to Ari's door, and only the Fae and the secret of Ari's bloodline can save her and the magic she protects. Bishop only adds luster to her reputation for fine fantasy. Paula Luedtke
