Spurned by a legendary bard, Eithne begs the King of the Selkies for a singing voice that would fill people with greatest emotion. But every gift comes with a price, one she would pay for generations to come. This haunting short story includes the bonus tale “…Of Human Sacrifice and Parents’ Tears.”
