[Clan Elves of the Bitterroot #1] At her friend's coaxing, Jelani tries on a real glass slipper left lying on the sidewalk. When she steps into the shoe, it shatters and cuts her foot. As blood trickles to the pavement and mingles with the broken glass, dozens of two-inch high creatures emerge and then scurry away into the shadows. As if that was not bizarre enough, soon she is approached by two mysterious and handsome men claiming to be elves who need Jelani's help to rescue their queen. More revelations come, threatening to unravel the life of this sassy barista from Missoula, Montana. Jelani must come to grips with the idea that elves are not just creatures from a fairy tale. They are alive and living in the forests of the Bitterroot Mountains.
