Jenna lives in the
beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband, their three
delightful children, two wild cats, a chihuahua that
thinks he's really a dog, one hamster, and a several tanks
of tropical fish, frogs and newts. Oh, yeah, and a forest
full of elves, fairies and magic.
Although Thalassa, a sea-witch, is captured when the
warlord Rhaeven sends his troops to her small village, she
views it as not much more than what her past life
entailed. Married at a young age to a man she did not
love, and abused during the relationship, she is secretly
glad to see her husband die. Now, pregnant, enslaved, and
stricken with a deadly disease, she only waits her own
death to release her from her torment.
Terran, the elfin Crown Prince of Diraenia, must choose a
mate and produce an heir before his 30th birthday, or
forfeit the crown to his youngest brother, Unwin. And time
is running out. Terran is 29. His fiancé, Elise, is dead,
and he believes Unwin responsible. Yet, there is no proof.
To make matters worse, Terran's other brother, Sinclair,
has disappeared, and Terran fears the worse.
Bothered by a strange, haunting beat of drums, which no
one can hear save himself, Terran's thoughts continually
turn to a brief encounter with a young woman from Zal.
Three days he spent with her, walking her back to her
village, and her pre-ordained life there. Three days he
spent falling in love with a woman who could never be his.
She returned to her village, her waiting husband, and he
returned to the palace, and life of emptiness and despair.
But the drums continue to call, and at last, Terran sets
out to revisit the village, to see the woman one more
time, to bring a close to his questions.
