A young girl lies in a coma, and her grandmother must convince an admiring classmate to battle for the girl's life in another realm - the Otherworld of the Theena Shee, a.k.a. fairy folk. In a minimalist style that is nevertheless rich with detail and nuance, Attanasio (Radix) combines Celtic mythology with Orpheus's journey tot he Underworld to tell a tale of young love that resonates with both timelessness and immediacy. A solid addition to larger fantasy collections.
