EXCERPT FROM UPIR AND THE MONSTER GANG
Gleaming in the moonlight, the surface of the stone shone like glass. Another spark of
light filtered through the solid surface and darted into the darkness. Larger than the first
one, it flickered and spun several times until more lights emerged. Dancing on and off like
lightning bugs, the lights spun and whirled, formed a line then settled along the top of the
rock wall. Tiny men and women with shimmering skin and multicolored wings emerged.
This was the procession of the Fey and among them were fairies, pixies and sprites. Some
twirled into the air while others skipped along the earth singing and dancing. Their
merriment was led by the fairy queen herself, L’Alliana. Their song was mesmerizing and
one could get lost in their tune, in fact many have.
