Quarsachealf, the people of the Fáe, live peacefully in pact with nature. Their land is beautiful and vast, their food is utterly delicious, and the people are exquisite beyond comparison to our world. That is, until they become attacked by a race so vicious and malevolent that they annihilate every living thing for the sake of their own growth. Then there follows a war that would take a miracle to stop.
Meanwhile, in our world, are Mike and Lily Dee staying at a boarding school in London, while their parents are off to research stuff in America. Their days are boring, and consist usually of school and spending time together, pretending that they are in a fantasy-world. That, however, changes drastically when they find 'the weird woman'.
