BLURB (unofficial):

Their grief binds them.
The song calls them.
The Darkness seeks to claim them.

When tragedy strikes, and they find all those they hold dear missing, a human, a changeling, and a nymph must struggle together through worlds and tangled emotions in a race against the rising Darkness.

The Songs That Beckon is the first in a dark and dreamy duology about love and loss and three people who will go to any lengths for family.
