Every generation threw up a beguiler-hunter; a tragic soul considered by the rest of the villagers to be insane.
Rilka knows she isn’t mad. But the desire to catch a beguiler is about to change her life, and the lives of those around her for ever.
From the Back Cover.
Every night they come drifting through the sky above the village streets, issuing their mournful cries and terrorising the population. It isn’t safe to go out after dark.
Everyone is aware of the power of the beguilers but no one knows what they are. No one has ever caught one. But every generation produces a beguiler-hunter: a tragic soul considered by the rest of the villagers to be insane.
Rilka isn’t mad. But the desire to catch a beguiler is about to change her life and the lives of those around her, for ever.
