A sidh ('shee'), or "fairy mound," has been discovered in western Ireland: the oldest artificial structure in the world. When opened, a rash of bizarre and inexplicable events occur throughout the region. A young American anthropologist and his friends try to understand the significance of these events in light of what was found in the shee...and what escaped from it. The Shee is part mystery, part adventure: an experiment in literary magical realism that brings Irish myth to life in a contemporary setting. It is the first installment of The Changeling Trilogy-the epic story of the mythic conflict between the Tuatha De Danann and the Fomhoire, the preternatural agents of order and of chaos, wherein the spatio-temporal universe hangs in the balance.
