Chased by Fire
Tan is an earth senser and a skilled tracker—talents which are wasted cleaning out stables. He should be excited when he’s told to guide the king’s most important servant through the mountains that surround his village, but as far as Tan is concerned, being given a task for the king is akin to a death sentence.
The Queen’s Opal
Elves never use magic or leave the forest.
They aren’t supposed to get sick either, but Drynn’s mother just died from a mysterious illness, which has targeted the elven queens for generations. With no female heir left, the symbol of the curse—a green stone called the Queen’s Opal—passes to Drynn. Unwilling to lose another family member, Drynn’s impulsive and overprotective brother drags him out of the forest to search for a cure. And the oft-diseased humans seem the most likely place to start.
