A minstrel lives by his words, his tunes, and sometimes by his lies. But when the bold and gifted young Thomas the Rhymer awakens the desire of the powerful Queen of Elfland, he finds that words are not enough to keep him from his fate.

As the Queen sweeps him far from the people he has known and loved into her realm of magic, opulence - and captivity - he learns at last what it is to be truly human. When he returns to his home with the Queen's parting gift, his great task will be to seek out the girl he loved and wronged, and offer her at last the tongue that cannot lie.

Award-winning author Ellen Kushner's inspired retelling of an ancient legend weaves myth and magic into a vivid contemporary novel about the mysteries of the human heart. Brimming with ballads, riddles, and magical transformations, here is the timeless tale of a charismatic bard whose talents earn him a two-edged otherworldly gift.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Elegant and beautiful . . . a magical tour de force shot through with strange melodies. I loved itA perfectly splendid story, splendidly told with great style and originalityElegant and cozy. Witty and wise. Innocent and sensuous and, at times, downright sexy. Kushner's Thomas the Rhymer does it allNo one is writing more elegant and gorgeous English these days than Ellen Kushner - The Magazine of Fantasy & Science FictionLyrically written and humanly moving. Ellen Kushner's treatment of the True Thomas legend is worthy to rank with those of Kipling and Cabell
