Betrayed and enslaved, the ancient elf called Tez finds himself bought by Maria the Beast-Kin. While trying to discover his fate, Tez finds himself drawn to the mystery of this wizard's familiar turned landed lady. Together these two outcasts form a tentative alliance, then a deep partnership, in a story that is by turn erotic, adventurous and philosophical.
