The classic fantasy duology, combining The Dreamstone and The Tree of Swords and Jewels in an omnibus for the first time

It was that transitional time of the world, when man first brought the clang of iron and the reek of smoke to the lands which before had echoed only with fairy voices. In that dawn of man and death of magic there yet remained one last untouched place—the small forest of Ealdwood—which kept the magic intact, and protected the old ways. And there was one who dwelt there, Arafel the Sidhe, who had more pride and love of the world as it used to be than any of her kind.

Praise for The Dreaming Tree:

"A beautifully told tale reminiscent of Dunsany." —Publishers Weekly

"A gem." —Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine

“The characters are rich and well-rounded, the world realistic and well-defined—so much so that to draw yourself back into the modern world may seem unreal after spending some time in Eald.” —Bristol Herald Courier
