Nienna Havard. College student. Librarian. No one special. She's keeping a secret. Her mother's in an mental institution after vanishing for several years. She came back talking about elves, goblins, and wars.
To compound matters, she's having a hard time breaking up with the guy who clearly isn't right for her. Or maybe she's not right for him. Either way, she can't figure out how to tell him that they aren't working out.
Alred Lightvale. Elf. Hot. Protector of the Historian. He traveled to the human world to find a girl who's supposed to replace the recently murdered Historian. He's got a tight timeline to get the next Historian in place.
One problem. She's not exactly buying it. And she sure as heck isn't interested in joining the cause.
