While this book can be read as a standalone, it shares the world-building of Wing and Tongue.
The valley known as Cauldron of Keridwen is where the "Strange People" of Galdesh live — those who practice the occult arts or have paranormal powers. It's the home of Hilendra, an empath with mild psychic ability. But Hilendra also has another, more special gift she's intent on keeping secret. Intimacy with her results in healing and rejuvenation.
Hilendra has taken two lovers from the village. She doesn't find the men particularly attractive but they meet her needs. Until the shadowy but far more seductive form of another man appears in her cottage one night.
As Hilendra's dream lover becomes more real and increasingly more captivating, his true identity comes to light. He seems to have some connection to a local witch and to the Farfields dragons. Hilendra also discovers her two former sex partners are not what they seem. A plot is afoot…and it endangers not only the Kingdom of Galdesh and the Farfields dragons, but Hilendra herself.
