Overview

Seventeen year old Jelena Preseren has lived her entire life as a social outcast because of her mixed human and elven blood. She labors as a servant in the household of her uncle, the powerful Duke of Amsara.

When her uncle tells her she is to be sold as a concubine to his wealthy neighbor, rather than submit, Jelena makes the decision to flee and strike out into the unknown on a quest to find her elven father.

Accompanied by her human cousin, Jelena's journey takes her to a strange and beautiful land whose people live in the shadow of impending war. There, she encounters a fate she never anticipated-one of magic, danger, and most startling of all, true love.

Set against a backdrop of romance and adventure, Griffin's Daughter tells the story of one young woman's brave struggle to discover her true place in the world.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The humans who inhabit Soldara regard the nearby elven nation of Alasiri with uneasy hostility, yet the two races have come together in the lands bordering the two nations. Raised as a servant in her uncle's house after her human mother's death, 17-year-old Jelena flees her human family in search of her elven father and to find someone who will teach her more about the rare magical talent she has recently manifested. In the elven land, she discovers not only her family, but also that she is the target of an ancient and malevolent force seeking to free itself. Moore's first novel portrays a young woman's struggle to make her way in a world that has trouble accepting someone neither human nor elven. Suitable for larger fantasy collection, though some scenes of graphic sexuality may limit this title to adult readers.
