"Seeing the great darkness within the elven prince's heart, the High God cursed his descendants with a thirst for blood..."
Nocturne, a descendant of Prince Gilden, is an outsider. He sees humans as more than bloodmeals - something not well respected in Druen society. One winter night, his compassion gets the best of him when he kills his neighbor to save a human slave.
Forced to flee his village and everything he's ever known, he begins a world-spanning journey in pursuit of his true home. His search will take him from the frozen wilderness of the Druen to the great cities of the non-cursed Elves and beyond, perhaps even into the realms of humanity.
A novel of 40,000 words.
