Magpie Windwich is a fairy who, with her band of crow companions, hunts down the devils that are plaguing the world. She has discovered a new kind of evil however in the most recent devil she found. There is nothing but darkness and gnawing hunger where she would normally expect to find filth and blood. To learn of what she has found, she decides she must chase down the djinn, the elemental forces that created the world, but they are in hiding and have not been seen for millenia. 'Pie is not stopped by such a challenge and is determined to save her world from the nothingness that is threatening to envelop it. In her efforts she is joined by a host of magical companions from the forest of Dreamdark - the most sacred place of the ancient world.

Though it tells a tale of a dark and dreadful enemy, this book never becomes overwhelmed by despair. Magpie and her friends are likable and sincere. It's pure fantasy that feels very real.
