From the wilds of the Borders to the enchanting and terrifying lands of Faerie...
When young Walter encounters his kinsman Michael Scot his life is changed for ever. Even in the turbulent Borderlands of thirteenth-century Scotland, Michael had a fearsome reputation as a magician and master of forbidden arts, traffiking with the demons of middle air. Now he has returned from years of exile with the Pope's pardon and the favour of the Emperor, a peaceful man of God - and yet strange events still follow him.
When his father is ambushed and killed, and his lands and his very life threatened by a necromancer, Michael appears to offer Walter the aid he desperately needs. Soon he is transported to another world, ensnaring, enchanting, seductive. There he finds a new life, new heroism and a new, all-consuming love. But there is a terrible price he must pay...
Based on the Border legends surrounding the real Michael Scot, and written by his namesake and descendant, The Lord of Middle Air is a superb evocation of the medieval world and the dramatic and dangerous realm of black magic...
