Elfhome. A world of powerful magic, beautiful elves, man-eating trees, frost-breathing wargs, and god-like dragons. Pittsburgh.
A city that has been stranded deep in a virgin elfin forest to stave off an invasion by the merciless oni. Its population of sixty thousand humans and a handful of elves are pitted in a war that will only end in genocide. Winter is coming. Supplies are running low. All political ties are fraying. Hidden somewhere in Pittsburgh’s crumbling neighborhoods, a vanguard of oni are growing in number and attacking from the shadows. And children are disappearing. Girl genius Tinker was once a human orphan, growing up on the Pittsburgh streets. Now she’s an elf princess with all the bells and whistles. Tinker is determined to make her city a place of such freedom. She’s going to have to kick butt and take names. And she has to do it quickly. Seven elf children are already missing - and the oni eat their prisoners when they outlive their usefulness. In her search, Tinker uncovers ancient secrets and a web of betrayal …and the oni will stop at nothing to win. So neither can she!
Book Three of the Elfhome series, the follow-up to the exciting Wolf Who Rules and the award-winning fantasy-SF novel that started it all, Tinker.
