The Work

While hunting in the mysterious Forgotten Valley, Elenwë, a 100-year-old hybrid elf, is attacked by the Accursed Archer, a warrior who hunts down the
Shadows of the Dead. But the Accursed Archer renounces to his duty and the Shadows take possession of his body. The fragile peace that holds in the world of Erthalian’s is thus shaken.

Elenwë and his master, Voronwë, must warn the Council and the Queen before it is too late. The Night Elves from the North are determined to avenge their defeat two centuries earlier.

The time for battle has come. Are the Light Elves ready? And why is Ingör, the god of the Underworld, so interested in Elenwë?
