What would happen if a 50-mile chunk of modern-day Pittsburgh existed mostly in Elfhome, a magical realm ruled by elves? And what would happen if a royal-born elf fell in love with the ingenious proprietress of a scrap yard? Read Tinker to find out!
When an elf named Lord Windwolf is chased into Tinker's scrap yard by a pack of wargs (pony-sized wolves) and almost ripped apart, Tinker does everything in her power to save him. As it turns out, this is the second time Tinker has saved Windwolf's life. Now, as Tinker and Windwolf forge an unlikely relationship -- and learn more about their respective worlds -- they must battle enemies in the elfin court, the EIA (the Elfin Interdimensional Agency), and criminals trying to smuggle illegal technology across the border between the realms.
