Begins three years after the last book, Marlowe’s ghost has been dictating Shakespeare’s plays to him, Shakespeare’s rich, the theater is doing well, but Shakespeare feels guilty. Marlowe tells him Hamnet is at risk; Quicksilver’s enemy is going to take him hostage. Will, Quicksilver, Proteus, Miranda, Caliban, her servant, a troll, and occasionally Marlowe and Lady Silver and three centaurs wind up on an island that is neither Elvenland nor the World. Magic works unpredictably there. Rather than rescuing young Hamnet, he decides he will stay in Fairy to be Quicksilver’s heir and Miranda’s husband. Shakepseare also writes Romeo and Juliet, when left on his own. As Will teaches Miranda, “A man may smile and smile and be a villain.” ( )

What magic inspired the world's greatest playwright?

Life has been good to Shakespeare, now the preeminent playwright of his time since the mysterious death of Christopher Marlowe. In his heart, he knows that his past contact with the Elven king Quicksilver sparked his talent and changed him forever-but it came at too high a cost. Then word is brought to him from Stratford that his son has disappeared, lost in the forest where Quicksilver reigns. Ablaze with anger, Will ventures once more into the realm of the unnatural, determined to wrest the boy from the Elven king's clutches. But he finds that Quicksilver is not the culprit. Now he must face an inhuman being of dark power to save not only his son, but all the realm of magic...
