Comet Weather

The Fallow Sisters: Book 1

Liz Williams

A contemporary tale of four fey sisters.

Bee: the practical one, the lynchpin; still living in the family home of Mooncote in Somerset, where she has met an unconventional boyfriend that not even her sisters are aware of.

Stella: a DJ currently hanging around the Med after completing a series of gigs in Ibiza, she has vowed never to return to Mooncote following a row with Bee, but that was then...

Serena: a single mother and fashion designer living in Notting Hill, increasingly uncertain of her relationship with long-term boyfriend Ben, a Camden-based rock singer and the son of a family friend.

Luna: the youngest, head-strong and free-spirited, a wanderer living out of a horse-drawn van while she follows the Gypsy Switch: the route of horse fairs that spans the length of the country.

The four Fallow sisters, scattered like the four winds but now drawn back together with the comet due, united in their desire to find their mother, Alys - a former Vogue cover model who disappeared a year ago . They have help, of course, from the star spirits and the no-longer-living, but such advice tends to be cryptic and is hardly the most dependable of guides.

Blackthorn Winter

The Fallow Sisters: Book 2

Liz Williams

As they make preparations for Christmas, four fey sisters are drawn ever further from the familiar world of contemporary London and their Somerset home, from motorways, fashion design and music, into darker realms where no one is who they seem and nothing is to be trusted.

When Serena's latest collection is mysteriously shredded on the eve of fashion week, the arrival of a wealthy benefactor seems a godsend, but is he all he seems? And what of the green-skinned girl Bee takes in after finding her cowering in a churchyard? How are these connected to the magpie changeling (who claims to be an angel) sent to watch over Stella or the timeslips Luna is experiencing with ever greater frequency now that she's pregnant?

Something is coming for the Fallow sisters, for their friends and their lovers, but they have no idea what, and their mother Alys is no help as she's gone wandering again, though she did promise to return by Christmas, and December is already here...

Liz Williams

The Fallow Sisters: Bee, Stella, Serena, Luna

Spring is in the air. As the Fallow Sisters and their friends recover from the events of Christmas, life has taken on a semblance of normality, but that's never going to last. They have made enemies, and it's not long before darker concerns intrude on their comfortable existence in contemporary London and their Somerset home. Once again they face danger beyond their understanding; a threat they are determined to identify and master.

Serena's relationship with the movie actor, Ward, is going from strength to strength, but when she is dragged back to the past while on location with him in Brighton, she knows the discovery of a dead airman is significant, but has no idea how. And what was Ward's ex Miranda doing there in the year 1893? Miranda had been present during some of the events of the winter, but was her role more significant than anyone realised?

When Diana, the Huntress, appears to Stella in central London and sets her a task to complete, Stella knows she can't refuse, but is it something she can hope to achieve?

If only the sisters could trust their mother, but they all sense there are things that Alys isn't telling them and instinct warns them to be wary of her...

Salt on the Midnight Fire

The Fallow Sisters: Book 4

Liz Williams

The Fallow Sisters: Bee, Stella, Serena, Luna

Four Fey Sisters whose lives straddle the contemporary and the 'otherworld' -- comprising the past and alternative realms.

In this concluding volume of the magical quartet, new dangers arise as the focus shifts from the family home of Mooncote in rural Somerset to the rugged coastline of Cornwall. The sisters and their friends -- Ace, Ver, Dark, Davy, Nick, Laura, and Kit Coral -- find themselves embroiled in a deadly struggle between the land and sea: the Wild Hunt and the Wreckers and Pirates, a conflict that reaches down through the ages.

Their mother, Alys, claims amnesia after being thrown from a horse, but is she faking it? Who is the sinister Morlaker who first warns them off and then invades Mooncote itself, whose very presence chills them to the bone? Who is the mysterious woman -- first glimpsed in the crowds at the Wimbledon tournament -- who so resembles their deceased nemesis Miranda? And what part does Good Queen Bess have to play in all this? Is she all that she seems, or more than she seems? And then there's Hob, can he be trusted?

The most pressing question, of course, is: will all four sisters survive this latest adventure?
