Theater, magic, art, and politics all blend in "e;Elsewhens,"e; the second installment of the amazing high-fantasy series from the imagination of Melanie Rawn.
Touchstone, the magical theater troupe, continues to build audiences. But Cayden is increasingly troubled by his "e;elsewhens,"e; the uncontrolled moments when he is plunged into visions of the possible futures. He fears that his Fae gift will forever taint his friendships; his friends fear that his increasing distance will destroy him.
But worldly success follows them-an apparent loss in the Trials leads to Touchstone being selected to travel to the Continent with a Royal Embassy to collect Prince Ashgar's new bride. They are the first theater artists to appear outside Albeyn for at least seventy years-for magic is suspect and forbidden elsewhere, and the Kingdom's easy race mixing and magic use horrifies the people they are to travel among.
