      "Goblins are just a tale to frighten children."

    Emily might have believed this once, but she knows better
    now. For years she has been living happily in the
    underground goblin kingdom. Now Emily is old enough to
    marry, but when her childhood friend Seylin proposes, she doesn't take him seriously.

    Devastated, Seylin leaves the kingdom, intent on finding his own people: the elves. Too late, Emily realizes what Seylin means to her and sets out in search of him. But her quest, like Seylin's own journey, is really a plot devised by the cunning goblin King, who has his own reason to hunt for elves. As Emily and Seylin come closer to their goals, they bring two worlds onto a collision course, awakening hatreds and prejudices that have slumbered for hundreds of years.

    Synopsis provided by the author.
