Bil and Bon Franksabout this book: "In this great magical universe we are all children of the dust."
Those words open our third in the Twilight of Magic saga.
As you can well imagine, the "dust" of this book is very special. It's not really dust, but a whirling, pirouetting, gem-like substance that permeates the underground world of the dwarves. The dwarf dust proves to be the magical means for Caylith and her friends to travel through the honeycombed network under the soil of both Faerie and Britannia to save both lands from destruction.
The book begins with Caylith hearing a bell-like voice urging her to follow. And when she does, she meets a most astonishing clan of dwarves, headed by Jay Feather, who greet her as their deliverer.
Caylith finds, much to her distress and outright annoyance, that the oracles have decreed it: She will save both Faerie and Britannia, and through her efforts will the sacred scrolls of mankind be saved from the coming barbarian invasions.
Kind of a heavy load for a 16-year-old, hardly hatched, don't you think?
Caylith discovers that the dwarf dust can lead the way to salvation for her Faerie and Britannia friends. But the burden is a painful one, and the journey is both exciting and fraught with peril.
At last, she alone must confront an evil that no one—much less a not-tall young girl—can resist, an evil that threatens not just her loved ones and herself, but the world as she knows it.
