It is Lily’s first day in the Velesi realm but not as the princess she was made to believe, but as a captive to a strange Lithi elf name Ziri – Tharin and Tolan’s mysterious brother. Who is he and why has he taken her? Or is he only a pawn in someone’s deadly game of chess?
Tharin and Lily discover a prophecy involving the Unnamed Sidhe and a way back to Eirrell, the birthplace of the Thirteen Clans. However, before they can get to the doorway to Eirrell, Lily must first make it to the Day of the Seating to take her rightful place on the throne of the Willow Clan.
Tharin must keep Lily safe until the Day of the Seating even if it means keeping the beautiful Sidhe warrior Kalis close to him. Will he be able to protect his naïve, but stubborn bride-to-be not just from Harlu but from his warrior mistress? He once again turns to his brother and cousin, to only find that Tolan has his own problems with his feisty Julia.
Thank goodness for the future king of Velesi that he has Phoris, Alorn and Mellis to cover his royal back.
Welcome to Velesi, a realm existing alongside our own with their own rules, their own players and their own way of life.
I fall deeper and deeper into the storyline as Ms. Filloon weaves and crafts her magical web which captures you and puts you right along side of Lily, Tharin, Tolan and Julia. Once I started reading it I could not put it down as I anxiously wanted to see what would happen next. A must read for lovers of elves, orcs, dryads and all things magical.
