(From the publisher):
A narrow street on the outskirts of London. It is obviously a not-too-prosperous but respectable area. By a dark brown building with a hazardous outside staircase that climbs, crookedly, to a door on the fifth floor, a dark-haired lady in silk appears, as if out of the air itself.
Young Will Shakespeare, come to London to make his way as a poet, labors in the shadows of the writer he aspires to be: Christopher Marlowe, favorite of the Queen. But he does not suspect that the two have so much in common. For both can trace their creative spark back to the same source: their passion for the faerie known sometimes as the Lady Silver.
Now she too is in the city, to track a beast of supernatural might. It is dangerous. It is deadly. And it is drawn to Marlowe. Though it might cost the lives of the two mortals that she loves still, she has come to stop it before it destroys both their world and hers...
