The worst has come and one man must rise to lead the fight against it. . . .He thought he\'d seen the worst . . .No one knew about the Strangers from beyond Noreela, and it was the Core\'s job to make sure it stayed that way.

Kel Boon has made a quiet life for himself in the sleepy village of Pavmouth Breaks, forming a relationship with trainee witch Namior.

A dark fantasy, but one which is very enthralling. I had never read any of his work before, but will now seek it out. It is imaginative and different, with good characterization and plotting.
