The inhabitants of the village of Gyrford live mostly in harmony with their neighbours in the Forest, and that is in large part down to the fairy-smiths, Jedediah, his son Matthew and grandson Johnny, for only fairy-smiths can intercede with the People when a problem arises – like when one of the fae – who, in fairness, does looks a lot like a thornbush with a blackberry for a head – is dug up and transplanted by someone who didn’t know any better and is now determined to wreak vengeance on anyone it can.

That’s not the only problem, for there’s a skinflint landlord determined to sell the mill and kick out the family who’ve run it for untold generations. And a young boy who was clearly damaged by the People at birth is spending most of his time trying to get into the Forest, which is forbidden territory for all but a very few men.

There’s even a rumour that Black Hal has been seen running – fire strikes from the great hound’s heels, they said, and his eyes are the red of coals.

So one way or another, the Smiths have got a lot on their plate, and a lot of people depending on them . . .
