(From the publisher):
Ginny Ni Cooley never desired more than the simple life she had. Living in Tamhasg Wood, she used her magic to occasionally assist the folk of Conorscroft while putting up with the machinations of the ghost of her former mentor, Manus MacGreeley. But her peace is shattered one night with the arrival of a lad fleeing a pack of red-gold hounds led by a hound-shaped demon known as Nidubh. So much for peace and solitude. By rescuing Fafne MacArdagh, Ginny becomes wrapped in the fabric of an intrigue involving a family feud, a traitorous son and a bloodmage named Edain who is determined to keep her soul. It was she who cast the spell on Fafne's family and household, and transformed the MacArdaghs into hounds. Ginny gives Fafne her word to take him to Caer Keltora so they can report the matter to the Council of Mageborn. But Edain is determined to keep her secret and her soul intact, and moves to thwart Ginny at every turn. For Ginny Ni Cooley, who has faced many bogies, dealing with a demon, a bloodmage and the Dark Lord of Annwn, will be no easy task. But she will do what she must to undo Edain's spells. If not, Manus' soul will become part of the Arawn's Cauldron of Doom. Ginny will become a feast for a demon, and poor Fafne will join the Hounds of Ardagh for all eternity.
