A fascinating story by someone who has done her research on The Sidhe. It was so interesting that it only took me 2 days to read it in the middle of an otherwise hectic schedule. The story line is that a group of the Sidhe get banished from the underworld to the upper world’s surface (ending up in northern California). Some Fomorian giants were banished at the same time for fighting with this group of Sidhe. The Elven characters end up making peace with the Fomorian giants. Lugh the main character falls in love with a human, Maria and they marry and have a girl child. What would be called a Muggle in Harry Potter language. Their daughter Aine is a magical child and is able to lead Lugh to a showdown with the main bad guy causing all the trouble for humanity. Lugh cannot beat the bad guy but Aine ends up winning using love.
An interesting story depicting some of the Sidhe abroad on the world’s surface. They end up doing lots of good for humanity in general. An alliance of sorts between The Sidhe and humans. A captivating story and food for thought for those interested in The Sidhe.
You can read some of the story on Tara’s website.
