As she is staring her vision started to change and she saw a man in decay with a foul odor, which she learns to be the Gray Man preying on a victim. No one else noticed the sight except an elderly woman who startles her by hitting her in the head and telling her not to stare because that she would jeopardize them all.

The glossary is included to help readers follow along with the terminology included in the book. According to Tuatha Dé Danaan legend, the Unseelie have been confined for hundreds of thousands of years in an inescapable prison. Fae magic doesn’t work on, capable of seeing past the illusions or “glamour” cast by the Fae to the true nature that lies beneath. Fae with the touch of his or her hands. The higher and more powerful the caste of Fae, the shorter the length of time it stays frozen. The Light Hallows are the stone, the spear, the sword, and the cauldron. Written in a language known only to the most ancient of their kind, it is said to hold the deadliest of all magic within its encrypted pages.
Brought to Ireland by the Tuatha Dé during the invasions written of in the pseudo-history Leabhar Gabhala, it was stolen along with the other Dark Hallows, and rumored to have found its way into the world of Man. Allegedly authored over a million years ago by the Dark King of the Unseelie. The key to deciphering the ancient language and breaking the code of the Sinsar Dubh is hidden in these four mystical stones. An individual stone can be used to shed light on the small portion of the text, but only if the four are reassembled into one will the true text in its entirety be revealed.
Fae relic imbued with mystical properties. Fae to camouflage their true appearance. The more powerful the Fae, the more difficult it is to penetrate its disguise. The average human sees only what the Fae wants them to see, and is subtly repelled from bumping into or brushing against it by a small perimeter of spatial distortion that is part of the Fae glamour.
Approximately 9 foot tall, monstrously ugly, leprous Unseelie that feeds by stealing beauty from human women. Can kill but prefers to leave its victim hideously disfigured and alive to suffer. Unseelie with myriad leech-like mouths, dozens of eyes, and overdeveloped sex organs. Militantly sentient, they resemble the classic depiction of the devil, with cloven hooves, horns, long satyr-like faces, leathery wings, fiery orange eyes, and tails.
Seven to ten feet tall, they are capable of extraordinary speed on both hoof and wing. Their primary function is to exterminate sidhe-seers. Unseelie thugs dispatch primarily as watchdogs for high-ranking Fae. They cannot bear direct light and hunt only at night. They steal life in the manner the Gray Man steals beauty, draining their victims with vampiric swiftness, leaving behind a pile of clothing and a husk of dehydrated human matter. During the day it looks like your everyday abandoned, rundown neighborhood.
Once night falls, its a death trap. Occurs at the speed of thought. Fae travel between realms, until Cruce cast the forbidden curse into the silvered corridors. Now no Fae dares enter the Silvers.
