The "Magick" of Renaissance Faire |
Reaching for home in the eyes of the past
In a world that borders both fiction and reality, two women meet under unusual circumstances and begin a friendship that will change their lives forever. Author Meghan Brunner introduces her readers to these women as they go through life in the "magickal" world of the Renaissance faire in her urban fantasy novel From the Ashes.
Welcome to Pendragon Renaissance Faire, where faeries live and the magic never ends. This recreated old-world marketplace enchants visitors with music and merriment, but for Ryna, who has lived within this world since childhood, it is simply home. As Pendragonís season begins, Ryna catches the attention of Bea, an apprentice "rennie" or faire performer. Can Ryna, who seems "Magickally" familiar, help her find a sense of belonging? Can Bea reawaken Rynaís sense of wonder about her world? They have only seven weeks to find out before Ryna and her family pack their trailers and travel to the next faire.
A heartwarming and enthralling narrative, From the Ashes awakens the readerís kinship with its characters through familiar life situations. The authorís expertly woven plot and brilliant use of language seduce the reader into an unforgettable realm.
