Présentation de l'éditeur
After four hundred years, isolated from the rest of the world, the Elven Nation has finally reestablished a presence on the mainland of Allasea. With their return, the elves have built the city of Second Home, a place of learning, open to all who would come to study.
For Raven, a young Shadow Elf historian, and one of the few elves born on the mainland, it's an opportunity for her to research the truth about the first child born to the elves, Umbral K'hul, a god-like boy whose attempted patricide and subsequent banishment triggered a civil war that fractured the Elven Nation.
A more sinister presence sees the elves' return as a chance to strike, filling the beautiful city with an army of chaos and death. But along with the demons, strides another: after ten thousand years of exile, Umbral K'hul has escaped his prison.
Now, the elves' greatest pariah and an untested heroine must face an enemy bent on genocide. In the process they will discover secrets their people have kept since the elves established First Home. Secrets which could prove even more devastating than the demons.
Biographie de l'auteur
Lee Dunning has written stories in one form or another since grade school. Lured into the realm of fantasy by her mother who read "The Last Unicorn" to her, Lee has never escaped the pull of magical worlds and mystic creatures. Her sixth grade teacher, Dixie Gaisford, introduced her to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, and from this came Lee's obsession with elves. Introduction to Dungeons and Dragons in high school ended any hope that Lee would escape and live a normal, boring life spent in the pursuit of a six-digit pay check and an early grave. Today she lives in the hellish desert with four siamese and one horrified orange tabby. The Pacific Northwest is calling and she hopes to relocate there soon.
