The Sidhe. The lost children. Snatched from the arms of mortals for eons and brought to the Mountain to linger for the rest of time. They serve as vessels for the gods – those mysterious, otherworldly beings who know nothing of the flesh, and in their infinite wisdom must take on a physical vessel for part of their existence, in order to understand all life. They dwell in the Mountain; that lonely hunk of rock floating aimlessly through the void. Though their days are often painfully uneventful, on certain occasions they are tasked with recording the names and histories of mortals in the Annals of Eternity. On very rare occasions, this means encountering a species that stands out from all the rest.
When they meet a people with previously unseen power, living in the light of an unknown deity, they take them into their home as friends, allies. They have never known a true enemy. After all, who would dare to challenge the gods?

Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, Alistair Anbard began putting stories together at a young age. Encouraged to both read and write by their parents, they developed a knack of conjuring up characters and worlds which consumed whole notebooks. They studied literature at university, by which time the mountain and its residents were already taking shape. A lifetime of being absorbed by science fiction, fantasy and horror, together with a passion of travel, culture, cuisine and mythology, eventually helped to form their scraps of writing into one complete project.

They continue to live in Dublin with their family and dogs.
