The Fall of the Faere and Other Stories
"The Elifaen once had wings. They came into being during a time before there was time, when the sun and moon and all the stars shone together in the sky with equal glory. In those days, they were called the Faere ..."
Thus begins the introduction to The Fall of the Faere and Other Stories. These stories, nine in all, tell of the creation of the world, how the Elifaen lost their wings, and what happened to those Seven High Houses that failed to save their people from so much strife. These histories, myths, and legends, spanning thousands of years, set the stage for the epic events of The Year of the Red Door.
"Taken together, these stories and legends describe the strife and tragedies that led up to the events that took place during the Year of the Red Door. Some of the figures within these tales fought valiantly, but unsuccessfully, to avert the conflicts and violence that they foresaw. Some saw the error of their ways and sought to undo the sufferings they had inflicted upon their people. Others remained unrepentant and vengeful, and they insured the fate of all the others.
"By the late Second Age, almost all of the significant players in these tales would be dead, and many of them all but forgotten. But the power of their acts, stretching beyond the breadth of their lives, seeded the crisis that would take place during the year 870 of the Second Age, the Year of the Red Door."
