Cyra Delphin is running away from an ex-lover's deceit and her job at Bracebridge. She is in search of H.U.G. (Humans Under Ground), an anti-goblin group, when she runs into wizard Thomas Marrowbone in the middle of nowhere.

With his help, she is able to uncover long-suppressed memories of what she really is—part sea fey, aka Selkie. When Thomas heads to Sin City to battle the goblins, Cyra follows—she knows that without her help, he will die.

OUTSIDERS is a superb sequel to Traveler. Using her exceptional imagination, Jackson once again returns to the alternate world of goblins, elves, fairies and magic. The story is riveting, with amazing new characters, and the composition of the hero and heroine is fascinatingly complex. An excellent combination of fantasy and romance! (Nov., 368 pp., $5.99)
