Debut novelist, Shawn Oetzel introduces readers to a fresh version of the fantasy genre as he transports otherworldly creatures straight into the heart of Los Angeles. One has arrived with vengeance and murder in his heart while the other faces the challenge of tracking this rogue elf to dole out his own personal version of justice. Oetzel makes it unmistakably clear early on, this final confrontation will be a life or death battle.

Kalen Or’Wain, Captain of the Elven Royal Guard, is prepared to die for his people, but the unexpected assignment—which sends him to the terrifying world of the humans—shakes him to the core. Compelled by duty and scarred by his own personal history, Kalen confronts this unusual world—the people and his mission head-on—instantly experiencing emotional overdrive. He has stepped into a pale comparison of the beauty that he is familiar with and feels ill equipped to move forward without his human counterparts. While Kalen and his motley crew organize, their prey is moving quickly forward with single-minded determination to complete a ritual that will destroy the Elven race.

Oetzel—gifted with the talent of painting a literary image in your mind—offers readers the unique opportunity to re-experience the small things, often taken for granted, as he entertains with sudden bits of humor while racing towards the climactic ending.
