About Melody Daggerhart

Melody Daggerhart is a writer, editor, data consultant, and artist currently living in Washington state. She has been writing and illustrating novels ever since she was old enough to hold crayons and talk to stuffed animals. After pursuing an education in English literature and working in a library and as a freelance consultant, she figures she is ready to share her fanciful tales with more than her statuary, guinea pigs, cats, best friends, and her own captive children.

Her favorite genre to read and write is dark fantasy, but sprinklings of comedy, horror, adventure, steampunk, romance, and contemporary elements seem to have fallen into her Elf Gate Series, as well. (Hair color is subject to change with writing projects and moods.)

Favorite author influences include Anne Rice, R.A. Salvatore, H.P. Lovecraft, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Dr. Seuss among countless others.

About the Series: Elf Gate
This is a portal tale that stretches across several volumes like a story arc. Aija is mistakenly abducted into the land of the fae, where humans are outlawed and to be executed on sight. But she can't find her way home because the gate she came through collapsed. With the help of Trizryn, the enigmatic elf who mistook her, Aija discovers fae have modernized like humans, only differently; that they are on the brink of civil war; and that she must learn to defend herself in a world full of magic she doesn't understand. In trying to find a gate home before dragons destroy them all, they must unravel secrets not even Trizryn is aware of about himself and the fae court. This dark fantasy series combines elements of horror, comedy, romance, and adventure, in a modified steampunk setting. Teen rated for language and violence.

Add one dark elf, one sarcastic bard, and a confused human; blend into a world of ominous political intrigue with a dash of adventure and a pinch of humor; and serve alongside a healthy dose of danger.

The Changeling is an excellent start to what promises to be a complex and intriguing dark fantasy series. I highly recommend it and am eagerly awaiting the next installment.

I just finished the book and I can`t wait for book2. I already count this series and the characters in it among my group of favorites. If you like Dark Fantasy this is a must read. The pace of the book is really nice it never feels like you are stuck in one spot for too long just waiting for something to happen. Thanks to Melody for creating such an awesome world!
