It is the Feast of St Epiligia, patron saint of pointless journeys and voles. Across the land, grimy peasants prepare to celebrate and noble knights don shining armour to begin their annual quest to find something noble, obscure and well hidden. Deep in smelly Fuggis Mire, Morven the Unwise Woman reluctantly awaits the first of many pilgrims seeking her aid. She is the on duty seer since Angharad the Extremely Knowledgeable Unless it was Questions about the Weather, retired to go to live with her sister Maud in Penge. But in the distant land of Darkness and Despair, Demonica, the daugher of its diabolical ruler, is bored and contemptuous of her father's lack of interest in creating hellish havoc. Can the Unwise Woman bring together a reluctant Fellowship of a middle-aged boy apprentice, a highwayman, a manky unicorn and an elf maiden wearing Doc Marten boots to stop Demonica's rampage? Or will it be down to the voles? A quirky, affectionate parody of High Fantasy laced with irony and memorable characters. No fantasy cliche is spared.
