Summary Excerpt Comments

Ginny Ni’Cooley is a mage facing down demons, ghosts and the distrust of the locals.

Ginny Ni’Cooley wants a peaceful, quiet life.  But quiet is hard to maintain when her mentor is a ghost who died a lush and a letch.  And peace isn’t to be found when the villagers of Conorscroft expect their local mageborn to banish monsters and perform miracles.  

It’s that last bit causing the most trouble for Ginny.  Marman the pig-herder—once an unwelcome suitor—wants Ginny to help his wife to conceive, and doesn’t believe her when she says it’s beyond her powers.  

When the couple tries to solve the problem on their own, they unleash a demon imprisoned years ago.  Now, their actions have placed all of Conorscroft in danger, and Ginny’s got to find a way to defeat the demon before it destroys her village, the villagers, and makes good on its threat to kill her.

Ginny and Manus return for a new adventure!  First introduced in “The Bargain” (published in Sword and Sorceress 14) the mageborn who just wants a little peace and quiet but finds her life constantly interrupted by the machinations of the spirit of her former mentor.

Taking place in Underwood’s world of Ard-Taebh (home to several other books and stories: Dragon's Tongue, Wandering Lark, Demon in the Bones, among others), The Hag of the Wind is a fast-paced story read full of magic, dark and light.
