The Fallow Sisters: Bee, Stella, Serena, Luna
Spring is in the air. As the Fallow Sisters and their friends recover from the events of Christmas, life has taken on a semblance of normality, but that's never going to last. They have made enemies, and it's not long before darker concerns intrude on their comfortable existence in contemporary London and their Somerset home. Once again they face danger beyond their understanding; a threat they are determined to identify and master.
Serena's relationship with the movie actor, Ward, is going from strength to strength, but when she is dragged back to the past while on location with him in Brighton, she knows the discovery of a dead airman is significant, but has no idea how. And what was Ward's ex Miranda doing there in the year 1893? Miranda had been present during some of the events of the winter, but was her role more significant than anyone realised?
When Diana, the Huntress, appears to Stella in central London and sets her a task to complete, Stella knows she can't refuse, but is it something she can hope to achieve?
If only the sisters could trust their mother, but they all sense there are things that Alys isn't telling them and instinct warns them to be wary of her. And what of Nick Wratchall-Haynes, master of the local hunt? He has proved an ally before, but does he have his own agenda, and can he be counted on to help them again?
Life around the family home of Mooncote certainly doesn't get any simpler in this, the third volume in the story of four fey sisters who straddle the contemporary world and the mystical. Embertide is just as thrilling, warming, and magical as its predecessors.
“Williams is a skilled and fluent writer with a clear-sighted understanding of human nature, good and bad. Her dialogue is natural and she creates an immersive sense of place. The artistry that makes such things look effortless should not be underestimated.” – Juliet E. McKenna in ParSec
“Williams is a writer of magical clarity and convincing authenticity… For readers who love delving into woodland depths with tree spirits, unhallowed hounds, Earth-walking stars and the mighty force of women’s care for the land. A heart-hugging novel.” – Aurealis
“Though the story is told from different perspectives, the narratives blend and each section carries the plot along with a deftness that few writers can match.” – Sfcrowsnest
