A novel of ancient lore and magic set in the modern day.
Heather Devine is a writer of women's spirituality and a student of Celtic Traditions. When researching Irish lore for her next book, she comes across an ancient ritual and performs it, conjuring an Otherworld Being: a Faery Queen.
The Faery Queen becomes Heather’s teacher of the Faery Tradition, which—according to Queen Fay—can only be passed down mouth-to-ear; an oral Faery Tradition rich with wisdom and kept hidden in the Land of Faery since the Tuatha De Danaan withdraw from the world of mortals.
Queen Fay encompasses Heather in a mist of powerful experiences; some of which challenge Heather’s sanity and force her to have an awakening of past life memory. As Heather's relationship with the Faery Queen develops, Heather is visited by a Leanhuan Sidhe, Trooping Faery, the Unseelie Court, obtains a Fetch, and is unwittingly coached for admittance into the inner court of the Sidhe. When Heather is escorted into Faeryland, there she receives a 'gift of Faery'.
CHILDREN OF THE STARS is a beautifully written tale, woven with ancient magic and modern wonderment, often enchanting the reader into believing they are part of the story, and leaving one wondering if this tale is more real than mere fantasy.
