On the way they meet hobgoblins, kelpies, yarthkins and elves - not the enchanted sprites one would expect but fallen angels who steal human children for pets. It is the year 790 and the world is caught between belief in the old gods and Christianity. What Jack and his companions do will decide the fate of both religions.
