Publisher's Summary

It is the twilight of mankind. Depleted by generations of war with a race of dark beasts, humanity stands on the brink of extinction. The outlands are soaked with the blood of the fallen. The midlands are rotting with decadence and despair.
Elfkind, estranged by past crimes, watches and waits for nature to run its course.
And then the two collide.
Ayden's life has long been guided by two emotions: love for his sister, and hatred of all things human. When he's captured in battle, he is enslaved in the service of a human prince, Freyrik Farr. Freyrik's always known elves to be beautiful and dangerous, but never has one affected him as deeply as Ayden. Teetering on a dagger's edge between duty and high treason, Freyrik discovers that some choices can change a life, and some an entire world.
Between prejudice, politics, pride, and survival, Ayden and Freyrik must carve a new path, no matter how daunting. For nothing less than the fate of both their peoples rests on the power of their perseverance - and their love.

Amazing story and fantastical characters

Not quite what i expected but the color and depth of the characters is compelling. Narrated very well by Craig Beck this is a real page turner from start to finish. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed.

A Different Sort of Story

Elfkind and humans...what an interesting premise for a story. Throw in ferals, massacres, palace intrigue, barbarism, and a field of scarecrows and you have the making for a great story. In the midst of all of this you have Ayden and Freyrick , a pair that should not be together but find love in the chaos. I thoroughly enjoyed this adventure and was a bit perplexed at the end because of course, it leaves you hanging. One must rush out to get the next part of the series. Rachel Haimowitz's writing draws you into the tale and the narration of Craig Beck makes you want to stay for it all. A great escape...
