Trapped in a phantom forest filled with deadly creatures of the cold, Owen son of Tadwyn leads Lucambra’s royal family into a forbidden faery kingdom. As the long awaited “shepherd’s son,” he must sacrifice all to save his friends, restore the realm and revive lost souls. He is not alone, for a faithful ally in feathered guise will follow him to his appointed doom. The Downs is a touching tale of sacrificial devotion and valor woven into a rich retelling of ancient legend.
