'When a naked, naive and unnervingly Elfin entity named Pherel tumbles into a small midwinter coven gathering on the banks of an Australian river, magic happens—but there's such a thing as overdoing it.
Is Pherel a demon, an alien or just your everyday mythical creature hoping to improve his English? Whoever he is, he is about to transform the lives of a large and highly eccentric cast, human and otherwise. At times, the fate of entire worlds depends on his next haphazard step. But is Pherel's progress controlled by a shadowy Master Game-player?
To find out, you'll have to leap headfirst into The Visitants, a novel of bewitchment and bewilderment, sorcery and slapstick, and proof positive that travelling hopefully is a whole lot safer than arriving'. Source: back cover blurb.
