A marvellous, atmospheric fantasy of magic and the hardship of understanding between people of different ages and different cultures. Sal and Shilly thought they had found shelter with the Stone Mages when they fled Fundelry into the Interior, but Sal’s grandmother betrays them and brings Shom Behenna, their pursuer, into her home. At a hearing in the desert, the judgement of the Stone Mages is that Sal and Shilly must be taken to the Sky Wardens at the Haunted City … there they will find more than themselves, and less than they would like. Shilly wants to find Lodo again … Is he lost in the Void Beneath? Can he be brought back to the world? Sal needs to come to terms with his family and the father he has never known.
Betrayed and captured by the Sky Wardens, Sal and Shilly are brought to the Haunted City…
