Seventeen-year-old elven Elysia turns her easy life on end when she accepts her father's request to journey to the capital. Captured by soldiers, thrown in a dungeon, and soon to be sold to humans, Elysia refuses to face defeat.
During her long hours of isolation as prisoner, she develops a mental bond with a man she’s never met that becomes so strong the two cannot even tell their own thoughts, dreams, or emotions apart. Elysia escapes her captors, only to find danger lurking at every bend. Confused, alone, and uncertain, now that she’s begun, Elysia cannot turn back.
