       Additional Information  
      A first novel.

    Here is a sweeping, two-episode fantasy epic filled with a feast of visual detail, an action-packed quest, magical spells and potions, weaponry, psi powers, political intrigue, hand-to-hand combat, and relationships among humans, elves, dwarves, and an exotic blue-skinned race.

    Painting brilliantly in word and deed, the author shows us two worlds, two technologies, two societiesone male dominated; the other, matriarchal. Discrimination, racism, sexism and hatred spawned from jealously play against compassion, love and humor. A medieval atmosphere is seeded with futuristic architecture, time portals and fantastic flying war ships.

    Eighteen riddles are woven into the novels 366 page story. Added to round out the epic are: an Elvish Dictionary; The History of The World: The First New Age and The Second New Age; The Runes of Elwolf; Maps; and Casts of Characters. This book is for the adolescent and older reader. Nudity is mentioned in slave scenes.
