The Scathlan elf Kieran journeys through mortal lands in search of new
songs and tales to renew his people’s dying culture. His most cherished,
most impossible hope is to rediscover the powers of bards from legend
in order to wake the queen, in a stupor since the end of the war between
his own people and the Leas elves.
Kieran accidentally wanders into Leas lands, and a fall from his horse leaves him injured and at the mercy of his enemies.
He discovers that the Leas are not entirely as he believed them to
be. He develops a friendship with the Leas healer-prince, and the two
work together to recreate an ancient technique for melding bardic and
healing magic, a technique he secretly hopes will wake his queen.
As friendship deepens into love, will they find a way to heal the
rift between Leas and Scathlan, or will the old enmity destroy them?
