Publisher's Summary

What is the difference between ignorance and stupidity? Ignorance can be solved if you live long enough.

Zaena has been sent as an Elven emissary to learn and build a relationship with humanity. She's only two hundred and fifty years old, so time should be on her side. Except she gets involved in a brutal gang war in the first month of landing on the shores of the West Coast of the United States.

San Francisco, to be exact.

Zaena quickly learns that her knowledge of humanity is closer to the twentieth than the present-day twenty-first century.

So much for her teachers' study of humanity's television shows.

She's got attitude, magic, and a sacred armor pendant. What she doesn't have is a clue.

She will survive her ignorance or die trying to build a bridge and save her people.

Super Hero

I usually Look for fantasy romances which this isn’t one. However, it’s a great story with an elf leading the charge. I loved our female superhero with her two sidekicks saving the day.

Zaena rocks!

Great start to the series - a lot of character building and the history of Zaena's people.

she meets Grace, who takes her in and helps her understand what is acceptable - Zaena tells Grace she's from a small, secluded village in Switzerland.

Grace's past comes back to haunt her and Zaena repays Grace by looking out for her.

Karl, a ex-detective turned PI is also watching Grace because he's after the man from Grace's past.

I really enjoyed this book and the narration was good too.
