“Celtic faerie-lore comes to life in The Twelfth Stone. When a 21st-century girl comes face-to-face with the ancient world of faeries, we need no coaxing to follow along. With evocative imagery and a powerful environmental theme that bridges the two worlds, The Twelfth Stone will enchant.”

Description

The faerie world is fading. Human greed is giving rise to the evilest of faeries. Only Rionnag’s marriage will prevent earth’s doom. But she will have none of it.

The Twelfth Stone is a Celtic American fantasy, adventure, romance and cautionary faerie tale for young adults & adults. Led by Fiona and Rionnag, the cast of characters runs the gamut from evil faeries to captured mortals, from destructive developers to secret lovers who meet only when the borders between the worlds open.
