The chance discovery of a gold ring draws her into a strange plot - the ring is sought by an unnamed evil, and may once have belonged to the bard Taliesin.

Sarah must face the nameless evil if she is to protect her home and those dearest to her.

This is quite a romanitc piece of fantasy, with elements of celtic and shamanic mythology. There is an otherworld, a faeerie world into which many of the characters are drawn, and from which many monstrous beings erupt to attack them. Secret powers and magics aboud. This is a very pleasing book, imaginative, surprising and very readable.
