"Luke Arnold is a successful stage comedian who, with his partner Sophie Drew, is about to have their first child. Their life seems ideal and Luke feels that true happiness is finally within his grasp. This wasn't always the case. Growing up in a loving but dysfunctional family, Luke was a lonely little boy who never felt that he belonged. While his parents adored him, the whole family knew that due to a mix-up at the hospital, Luke wasn't their biological child. His parents did the best they could to make the lad feel special. But it was his beloved uncle Terence who Luke felt most close to, a man who enchanted (and frightened) the lad with tales of the "Other"--eldritch beings, hedge folks, and other fables of Celtic myth. When Terence dies in a freak accident, Luke suddenly begins to learn how little he really knew his uncle..."--Dust jacket.

I tried to get through this book, I really did, but it lacked anything other than an interesting concept to engage a reader. No character development & poor storytelling. How do you make such a potentially interesting subject so boring.
