by M. K. Theodoratus

Book Image Not Available
Overview
All Lady Renna, a veteran of the Half-Elven Rebellion, wants is respect. But she’s caught between two millstones – her neighbor who covets her lands and her steward who still treats her like a child. People can’t see beyond her small stature and crippled gait. Considered a weakling, Renna lets people think what they want. She’s a weaver, not a fighter. Renna may be sick of bloodshed, but as the holder of Ren Creek, she is expected to protect her people. When Lord Gorsfeld, her neighbor, starts vandalizing her holding, only she can protect her people. Her friend, Mariah, decides Renna has stayed on the sidelines too long. She pulls Renna into the power struggle with Gorsfeld for control of the Marches.

About the author
Snarly elves are my specialty. My scattered reviews consider, my take on elves -- actually a mixed elf/human population, the Far Isle Half-Elven – novel, even though conflict over magic is a cornerstone of their society. The general tone of the reviews? My Half-Elven stories are fast-paced, thrilling, exciting, and engaging. Yeah, I do the fantasy writer thing, mostly in the world of the Far Isle Half-Elven. You can learn more about the history and heroes of the Marches at my website: http://www.half-elven.com. A writing assignment started my "writing career". My sixth-grade teacher asked for a short story for an English assignment. She got a Nancy Drew pastiche and gave me a "C" because, at 25+ handwritten pages, I hadn't finished the story. [Most of the other kids only wrote two to four pages. *snarl*, *snarl*.] The next summer, I finished the MG story -- "The Clue of the Clay Cats". After five "writing careers", I now write fantasy. The Far Isle Half-Elven absorb most of my time, but I also explore the world of Faerie and ghosts in some of my middle grade fantasy WIPs. Current books: Taking Vengeance, Cavern Between Worlds [free], The Foiling of Gorsfeld [free], and Troublesome Neighbors.
