This is the epic tale of Kirin of House Dar’Shiel, the elfish daughter of an exiled priestess who must travel to the elfish high city to serve the goddess Alorana in her mother's stead. Long ago, her mother was charged by the goddess to wed a dark elf. A childhood trauma made the idea abhorrent, and the priestess fled with her infant daughter, child of her love affair with a light elf, to a world far removed from the magic of the elfish realm.
Born in the shadow of beautiful Table Mountain, Aneza Lee's passion for writing led her to become not only a published fantasy author, but an editor too. As a child she believed each glittering dewdrop was a fairy diamond, and the stars were divine guardians who guided her along her path.
She has a great love for the written word and believes there is much to learn, and to teach, through this medium about human nature and the world we share. There is a magic in the air of the wild land called Africa where she was born and she tries to suffuse her writing with it.
She lives in a leafy suburb of Brackenfell in the beautiful Cape of Good Hope and she is currently working on the second novel in the Harpy Chronicles, The Namari Book II, before its final edit and publication. Her poem, Dancing with Gypsies, was published in the Forever Spoken Collection by the International Library of Poetry and samples of her poetry are available on Writer's Cafe (http://www.writerscafe.org/SylvanHuntress).
Aside from writing fantasy and poetry, some of her interests and hobbies include knitting, counted cross stitch, gardening, and all things gothic. She shares her life with her fiancée, her loving family and an assortment of furry creatures.
