A world not of this world but in it-where a transparent palace hangs suspended in mid-air and tiny fairies twinkle here and there...where a traitorous king holds court before elven lords and ladies...and where fantastical tragedies and capricious romances reach out to entangle mortal souls...

Enter:
William Shakespeare


This enchanting fantasy debut begins with the disappearance of young Will Shakespeare's wife and newborn daughter-a mystery that draws the Bard into a realm beyond imagination...and beyond reality. Held captive by the devious ruler of the elves and fairies, Shakespeare's family appears lost to him forever. But an alluring elf named Quicksilver takes a fancy to Shakespeare-and sees a chance to set things right.

Can a mere schoolteacher win his wife back from a king? Or will Shakespeare fall prey to his own desires-and the cunning schemes of the unpredictable elf?

Genre: Fantasy

Praise for this book

"An intriguing speculation regarding the identity of Shakespeare's Dark Lady and a fetching surmise on where he might have gotten inspiration for his plays." - Katherine Kurtz
