So begins the latest developments in the World of Ryyah: Unlikely Alliance-Book Two in the Elven Age Saga. This epic action adventure series created by H.L. Watson follows the noble Brandela and her comrades Akenji and Kerala as they join forces and fend off formidable adversaries to forge a brave new world. It's a must-read for anyone seeking an utter immersion in a fantasy world like no other, where romance, bravado, magic, and fierce loyalty are tested beyond the scope of mere humans.
When Donovan was twelve years old, his village was raided by barbarians; his father killed, his mother taken, and he and the other village boys nearly suffered the same fate. But the raiders made the mistake of taking their captives through the Elven woods. The Elves killed the slavers, but mysteriously decided to spare the boys; instead, the boys were trained in the ways of the Elven Rangers under the tutelage of the beautiful Alayna. Over the years, the boys proved to be a valuable asset to the Elven king, but never more so than when young princess Brandela is taken hostage by a different Barbarian tribe. Donovan sets out to bring back what he assumes will be a haughty princess, but he never expects to fall in love with her!
