"Lara Jansen is a truthseeker, gifted or cursed with the magical ability to tell honesty from lies. Once she was a tailor in Boston, but now she has crossed from Earth to the Barrow-lands, a Faerie world embroiled in a bloody civil war between Seelie and Unseelie. Armed with an enchanted and malevolent staff which seeks to bend her to its dark will, and thrust into a deadly realm where it's hard to distinguish friend from foe, Lara is sure of one thing- her love for Dafydd ap Caerwyn, the Faerie prince who sought her help in solving a royal murder and dousing the flames of war before they consumed the Barrow-lands. But now Dafydd is missing, perhaps dead, and the Barrow-lands are closer than ever to a final conflagration. Lara has no other choice- she must harness the potent but perilous magic of the staff and her own truthseeking talents, blazing a path to a long-forgotten truth a truth with the power to save the Barrow-lands or destroy them. xcerpt HAPTER ONE Music tore the world apart. There was no rhythm to it, no melody to find, no predictable rise or fall to thundering notes. Instead it was the sound of instruments at war with one another, screeching and bellowing

Completion of a series.....which I hate reading the ending first....but enough history retold in the book that you know what happened in the past....not going to go back to read the first ones....the last one summed it all up.
