A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
1. A fairy.
2. The race of fairies.
3. A mound or hill where fairies are believed to live.
From Irish sidh (fairy mound). Earliest documented use: 1724. Now you can see where banshee came from. A banshee is the anglicized spelling of bean sidhe (literally, woman of a fairyland).
“From cops to killers, from sidhe to ravens, Duff provides distinct voices to a wide cast of characters.”
