Windmaster's Bane
by Tom Deitz
Book One in the celebrated series: The Adventures of David Sullivan
*Georgia Author of the Year Award for Young Adult Fiction
David Sullivan, a southern Appalachian teenager, reads about the gods of Irish myth and enjoys fantasies drawn from these stories. When a chance encounter with a funeral procession – viewed from an eccentric angle – gifts him with Second Sight, however, the reality of the world of Faerie proves as dangerous as it is fantastic. When David’s brother is stolen and his beloved uncle felled by Faery magic, David enlists friends Alec McLean and Liz Hughes as companions on the quest to save their lives. Readers will recognize the names and attributes of the gods of Celtic myth, with a light admixture of legends from the Cherokee and familiar superstition.
The cover image is from a painting by Val and Ron Lindahn, celebrated for cover art and fantasy illustrations.
