Summary

Aerita of the Light Country is Cummings' final novel of the winged women of Mercury. Years have passed, and the doings of Tama, Princess of Mercury, have become the stuff of legend to the women of the Light Country. But now tyranny threatens the winged daughters of the first planet again, and one fearless young woman, Aerita, inspired by the stories of Tama, locates Guy Palisse's legendary spacecar and blasts off for Earth in search of help.There she finds herself a prisoner in a traveling menagerie, taken captive and presented to the public as a strange creature from South America. Then Alan Grant steps into the tawdry sideshow where Aerita is being held to kill an idle hour—and found himself plunged head-over-heels into a maelstrom of battling adventure that took him across a hundred million miles of space, involved him in a vast civil war on an alien planet, and shouldered him with the fearsome responsibility for the safety of Earth!

    The Society for Magickal Heritage’s best agents are heading back into paradise. Giddy Gods help them all.
     
    No one ever said heroic adventure would be easy, but this is ridiculous.
     
    Magickal wonderlands aren’t meant to have a dark side. Heroes aren’t meant to get stranded there, either.
     
    Ves may be up for anything, but she hadn’t expected that pretty much anything would be up for her.
     
    And with a horde of unhappy spirits enjoying a direct line to Zareen’s psyche, it’s lucky she’s unbreakable... right?
     
    Mysteries deepen and madness abounds in three more Modern Magick adventures: The Wonders of Vale, The Heart of Hyndorin, and Alchemy and Argent.
