[Clan Elves of the Bitterroot #3] Twenty-five years ago, Daven Talvi chose to serve the Bitterroot Elf Clan by allowing its Circle of Elders to send him and a few other warriors into suspended animation until their queen could be rescued. In doing so, he gave up his mate and his newborn son, sacrificing his own life for that of the clan. It had been a mistake. With the clan now in chaos and a new young queen in hiding, Daven must acknowledge his own errors and take responsibility to set things right. He teams up with Lane Donatelli, a human who has too long used food and computer gaming to feed his insecurities. Together, they use Lane’s technology with Daven’s innate magical abilities to wage battle against the evil elf mages threatening the clan.
