Nicholas is young. Nicholas is fearless. He is on top of the world. His family—part human, part elf—has brought peace and prosperity to their city.
But the covenant between man and elf responsible for all the joy is destroyed when a deadly plague sweeps through the town. Chaos turns friend against friend, and in one night Nicholas loses nearly everyone he loves and flees for his life.
All hope is not lost. Nicholas returns to his childhood port city driven to mend the shattered ties between man and elf. He is determined to heal the city now devastated by a curse. And he will not rest until he has won back the heart of his life-long love.
Not everyone is ready to trust an elf again. Nicholas will have to use all his skills and powers to win the hearts of the city fathers so that he can put the citizens on the ancient scroll once again, restoring the peace and prosperity it once enjoyed.
