Publisher Comments:

The climactic concluding novel in the spellbinding magical contemporary fantasy Aetherial Tales trilogy

A painting, depicting haunting scenes of a ruined palace and a scarlet-haired goddess in front of a fiery city, arrives unheralded in an art gallery with a cryptic note saying, “The world needs to see this.” The painting begins to change the lives of the woman who is the gallery's curator and that of an ancient man of the fey Aetherial folk who has mysteriously risen from the depths of the ocean. Neither human nor fairy knows how they are connected, but when the painting is stolen, both are compelled to discover the meaning behind the painting and the key it holds to their future.

In Grail of the Summer Stars, a haunting, powerful tale of two worlds and those caught between, Freda Warrington weaves an exciting story of suspense, adventure and danger that fulfills the promise of the Aetherial Tales as only she can.

Review:

"The eerie, gothic third installment in the Aetherial Tales (following Midsummer Night) focuses on Stevie Silverwood, an orphan with no memory of her life before the age of 15. After a troubled youth, she has become the deputy curator of a museum of metalwork; she has friends and a solid job she loves. One stormy night near Christmas, Stevie's hazy past comes back to haunt her in the form of a painted triptych in the Byzantine style. She thinks it's nothing special until a mysterious force knocks her cold during a break-in at the museum; when she awakens, the painting and her metalworking tools are gone. Soon after, Stevie meets Adam Leith, an unnaturally handsome man with a great many secrets. Together, Stevie and Adam must unravel the baffling clues possessed by the triptych, and in the process possibly save two worlds. Neither their romantic adventure nor the larger tale of battles among the Aetherial beings is particularly compelling." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
