An Elf-girl with no magic, Teeka Bezem is shunned by her own. Until she discovers the healer for whom she works is plotting to murder the King. Can Teeka stop her in time to save the King, her country and her world? More
Every Elf has the magical ability to communicate with animals, except Teeka Bezem. For thirteen years she has been insulated by her family to protect her from Elves who believe she is an abomination. So it is that she is sent to work as a maid for the healer in the local human village. Soon, Teeka discovers Esmeralda has used a spell to keep the Fairy Queen barren and now plans to murder the King. If he dies without an heir the gate to the Fairy land will open. There, a race of murderous aliens waits for the moment they can enter and destroy Teeka’s world.
Teeka fears what will happen to her if it’s learned she has been working for a witch; yet she is caught by her desire to be loved by her own. In an act of loyalty, she courageously entrusts the Elf Lord with her secrets. Teeka is stunned when he believes her, more stunned when he includes her in a procession traveling to the Palace and utterly undone when she discovers she is the key to saving the world. A magical creature without magic, Teeka is the perfect vessel into which the Fairy Emperor can pour his magic, but will it be enough to defeat Esmeralda and save the world from The Beings?
