Ingledove and Lang’s mother is dead, and their childhood home in Appalachia has been drowned under a dammed lake. When the two siblings journey by boat to visit her grave, they find an inscription added to her headstone: A daughter of Adantis. Lured by a glorious music that pervades the air, Lang wants to go deeper into the mountains. He and Ingledove cross the border into the hidden kingdom of Adantis, where the ways of the Cherokee and the settlers from the Old World have fused to make a wild new world. There, the bewitching fairy beauty and ancient evil of the singer nearly destroys Lang. To save him, Ingledove must find the man known to Adantans as the Master of Witchmasters, and draw on strength she isn’t sure she has. . . .

"Ingledove is a marvelous book. I loved it and thought it was even better than Marly Youmans's first book about the magic land of Adantis, The Curse of the Raven Mocker, where the inhabitants and their magic are half Cherokee, half Border Celtic. I loved the way the Hidden Land materializes around you, as you read, as naturally as breathing. And the magic seems to arise almost as naturally - though it can be as sudden and cruel as a snakebite - and all of it is always breathtakingly wonderful. Then, instead of leaving you simply gasping at her marvels, Marly Youmans has the courage and the good sense to point out that experiences of this order cause people to change. I really admired this book." -- Diana Wynne JonesAbout the Author:
