Ronan's only choice when he suspects his sister has been taken by the fairies is to brave the path between the worlds to bargain for her return. He knows well the old tales and folk magic necessary to open the way, but he is wholly unprepared for what comes after. Because his impetuousness draws the interest of ruthless King Finnbheara, who intends to extract a price for his cooperation that may be too high for Ronan to pay.

The lord of the mound emerged from behind a watercolor wash of gold.

Ronan blinked the shimmering out of his eyes and felt it fall as tears. Shameful, he'd chide himself, if he had any room left for shame. Which he didn't. Not in this place.

Not with these... things. These capricious old gods.

"Yes, a splendid story indeed, and I gave way not all of it so much so that if you say there are spoilers here that will be the understatement of the century, but it really matters. It doesn’t matter, because no matter how accurately I tell you the entire story, I’ll never be able to produce the feeling you get when reading this story. The anxiety I felt all the time, the nail-biting feelings, the hot, carnal, and deeply dark erotic scenes, the gripping writing that has you tethered and shackled on you chair while you literally inhale the read… In short if you’re even slightly fond of the genre, grab this short, it’s delicious and so wicked, it will make a fantastic fast read for your evening."

"If you like ambiguous stories with mindboggling events, if you enjoy reading about orgies where pretty much anything goes and consent isn’t a factor, and if you're looking for a read that will sweep you into a world of fantasy and mind-altering events, leaving you unsure of "what just happened", then you will probably like this short story. It's definitely a wild ride!"
