Stew Kasey is a young film critic, content to eke out an ordinary existence. Sometimes, still, he finds himself searching for deeper meaning in his life. After an attack in an alley puts him in a coma, he discovers just what the word 'ordinary' means and how it no longer has any place in his life, except to follow the prefix 'extra-.' He wakes to a world where everything looks normal on the surface, but there is something else—something hidden beneath the shadows of the mundane. Faeries, leprechauns, gnomes and other magical creatures are not figments of the imagination who roam only in the dreams of children. They’re real. And Stew Kasey is about to find that out.
