A modern, fast-paced urban fantasy adventure. Manhattan like you've never seen it before.
Fourteen-year-old Whatrigal Madugal would give just about anything to be normal. Kids his age really shouldn't be out picking pockets in the glitzy Manhattan streets, working for crime kingpins with anger management issues. Normal kids don't usually have outlandish names like “What,” and don't regularly have to hide their pointed ears beneath their long black hair.
They aren't orphaned elves from war-torn homelands, and aren't used to being hunted by elf-devouring Vorgish mongrels and a legion of Dark Elf magicians.
Normal kids don't know just how good they have it, sometimes. Of course, normal kids don't get to chase mythical pegacorns through Midtown, or slip unseen into a wee castle in Central Park, searching for dwarven treasure.
Sometimes, it's good to be unusual.
