Castel is an elf stranded in human lands, slowly dying from lack of magical energy. Mendry is a human assassin descended from a line of vampire 'Dragon Knights' who seek to bring an evil dragon back to life.
When Mendry's father steals a child he believes to be his grand-daughter, the seventh generation needed to carry out the resurrection ritual, Mendry and Castel come together to save an innocent life, facing evil mages and more. Together with the child's uncle and mother, they make an unlikely band of heroes, and find a whole new meaning to the word family.
"Castel’s and Mendry’s relationship is as intriguing as the journeys they must take to protect the innocent. Emily Veinglory pens a fascinating fantasy tale which spins its web as tightly as if it were a realistic contemporary piece. Once again, her gift for characterization is apparent, with deeply-realised characters to whom the reader is immediately drawn." [TwoLips Reviews]
