fantasy book for adults
The elf Catherine, who works on a lookout tower of the City of Gold in the otherworld on the border to the kingdom of the fairies, is increasingly troubled by visions of an extremely handsome pale man (nameless Simon). In order to detect the nature of these visions she embarks on a journey to the City of Gold, where her elf-friend Gorgo is supposed to get married to the fairy John on the union of the two moons, a crucial date where evil might awaken when good represented by Gorgo marries evil (John). The vampire Simon plays a pivotal part in its awakening as he is involved in an ever more complicated series of crimes that culminate in a war between elves and fairies on that date. Simon who has escaped persecution in the real world by making the otherworld his home has to demonstrate where his loyalties lie as the fairies employ not only the Enchanted riding on swans, a rock-eating monster with huge tentacles, but also bad vampires, the kingdom of the rats and of the tamed tigers as allies against the elves to arouse evil. Simon with the help of the master magician David and the head of the elf army Nicholas are able to defeat the fairies by making use of a secret maze under the City of Gold and by turning the gold loving rats against the fairies, defanging the Enchanted, freeing the tamed tigers, getting rid of the monster, and destroying the bad vampires.
