Steward of Song (Tor Fantasy)
Synopses & Reviews
Leaving his life of petty crime and drug abuse behind, young Douglas flees from Minneapolis to Edinburgh, Scotland, to his stern but fairminded Grandma McLaren, who will take him in if he can support himself. Fortunately, few cities are friendlier than Edinburgh to a guitarist with a talent for spontaneous rhyme, and soon Douglas is making a decent living as the busker who can write a song about you on the spot.
But Edinburgh has its dangers for the unwary. The annual arts festival, biggest in Europe, draws all manner of footloose sorts, and tempted by the drugs offered by a mysterious young girl, Douglas stumbles.
What follows isnt what he expects. Suddenly, Douglas can see the fey folk who invisibly share Edinburghs ancient streets—in all their beauty and terrifying cruelty. Worse, they can see him, and theyre determined to draw him into their own internecine wars--wars that are fought to the death.
Murder and its consequences haunt the human and faery worlds in this sequel to the widely-praised Singer of Souls.
