Dancing with the Folk, you can't afford to step false.

While a rather unusual depiction of the Gentry Themselves, this story deftly traces the perilous enchantment and rollicking upset of Faery (as is oft brought on by the games played at by its inhabitants). If ever you've thought the Folk were lovely, you wouldn't be wrong, but you'd also be wise to remember that Faery is a land dripping with glamours, and every step in that place is deadly dangerous for mortals. Especially those that think they know the rules.
