A maiden used as bait in a unicorn hunt.
Spirit weavers whose true purpose has been forgotten.
Mermaids who can sing silver out of the sea.
A young vampire eager for her first taste of a man.
Moondancers who risk their lives to calm earthquakes.
A fairy who desires a mortal with tragic results.
Previously published in genre magazines for adult readers, each story carries an introduction by the author, giving a fascinating glimpse into the inspiration behind her debut novel 'Song Quest' and the early days of her writing career.
Note: This collection was previously published with a slightly different selection of stories as "Death Singer and other fantasy tales" (also under the title "Rubies") and is suitable for readers aged 12+.
