Interesting story about the clash between the worlds of Faerie and Man. The book follows a couple generations of humans set in a Celtic world and how their lives and culture impact on Arafel, the last of the Faerie.
It was the transitional time of the world, when the man first brought the clang of iron and the reek of smoke tow the lands whaich before had echoed with inhuman voices. In the dawn of man and death of magic there yet remained one last untouched place--the small forest of Ealdwood--which kept a time different from elsewhere, and one who dwelt there who had more patience, pride and love of the earth than any other of her kidn--Arafel the Sidhe.
This is the story of the last defense of Faery against the encroaching iron sword of the Era of Man.
