Gifts of the Auldtree is a world of mythology, glamor, mud, blood, civilizations in conflict, and hints of distant powers. In the center of this is the mysterious Starlight Jewel of Minalav.

Axly, the Starlight Company's premier seductress-thief and assassin, will do whatever it takes to keep her human brother hidden. The secrets of his origin could tear their world apart, and keeping them has driven her to lies and murder. Her people, the sprygan-human hybrids that live under the city of Minalav, aren't keen on allowing their most skilled asset to roam free.

A job with a human offers a chance to get her brother out of danger, but it comes at a price. Divided loyalties, duty, romance, and the twisted hands of fate intertwine as the characters struggle through this epic fantasy adventure.

The Austringer
By the sword an Austringer rises, and only by the sword can he fall. Tarley loved his Austringer, but killed him to take his place. Hybrids can't be led by the weak or feeble.

The Starlight Jewel
The Starlight Jewel must become whoever is needed to guide the hybrids of the Starlight Company through the dark. Her prestige puts her on a pedestal—and not one they'll let her step down from willingly. Axly earned that title, and now she must find a way to shed it, lest it destroy everything she holds dear.

The Watcher
The Ashites would have used him for wickedness, he knew that. But he can't help but feel that there is a place for him. A place where people would use him for good and let him protect the ones he loves. He would do anything to be able to save her as she once saved him.

The General
Discipline, duty, and obligation make for a life that is dull and gray. Yet all the wild things inside that had to be quelled are still there, buried in the depths. He craves the fire in the eyes of those who live with their passions unveiled. It's best to be wary of what tempts you. "Just one" can quickly become "just one more"...
