Part human, part elfin, young Tom struggles to find a place to call home in this striking debut fantasy novel.
Tom is both elfin and human, and running for his life. Cast out from the elfin Tribe, he must hide among the hated humans, whom the Tribe call "demons." Tom's Tribe-half seeks freedom and thrives on a connection with nature which lets him "call on the stars" and turn invisible when in danger. But Tom's human side is emerging, and he is confused and appalled by this change. For he fears the twining emotional bonds, which he sees literally as vines, that bind one human to another. But when he is helped by a kind "demon" girl, it is these strong bonds that save him-and draw him to his true home.

This is a dark tale of the collision of two worlds. The "tribe," a people much like elves or gremlins, live upon the town common and stay clear of the humans they call the "demons." Tom becomes a pariah because he endangers the tribe through his clumsiness. He decides to leave, but his people are looking to kill him, so he can no longer be a threat to them. He tries to escape the town to live freely on his own, but a demon, Anna, captures him in hiding, and helps him to survive. Paul McGann tells the tale in a low, raspy voice that captures the tone and quality of the story. D.L.M. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
