When magically gifted Arisha runs away from an army camp with her elephant Hami in order to save him from death in battle, she thinks she's in deep trouble. However, she soon discovers that things can always get worse.
Escaping across a war-torn country, they are captured by the enemy’s leader. Rhys, known as the Eagle and with a reputation as a cold blooded killer, wants to use the elephant to take revenge on Arisha’s people and needs her to control Hami.
Arisha is ready to fight him every step of the way, but to her annoyance, instead of throwing her in a rat-infested prison, he behaves with honour. Grudgingly she comes to respect him and they find themselves drawn to each other despite their differences.
But can Arisha bridge the gap between opposing countries and personalities before the decisive battle is joined?
A tale of elemental magic, almond eyes, daring escapes and feathers.

About the Author
I grew up in Switzerland and thanks to my father’s job with an airline travelled to many far-away places from an early age. Even better though, I discovered, were journeys to imaginary worlds. And so I trudged through the Mines of Moria, sailed on the Dawn Treader, fought in the Trojan War and rode telepathic dragons. Even then I was always scribbling stories in my notebooks, but nothing came of it until much later. I went on to study English and History, eventually ended up with a job in information technology and started a family. However, the urge to create my own worlds and stories remained, so when it was quiet in the evenings I slipped away to places that existed only in the imagination - the results you can find on these pages. I hope you’ll join me on my journeys and enjoy them as much as I do!
