Cloaked In Shadow

(2004)
Dark Tales Of Elves
An anthology of stories edited by

 
 
Elves aren't always creatures of the light.

Some elves thrive in the darkness, stalking their unwary victims for their own twisted pleasure. Sometimes they hunt and kill for the mere thrill. Sometimes their motives are beyond all human understanding.

Inside this anthology you will find elven assassins, kidnappers, and conspirators. You will find elves who are reaching from beyond the grave and those who are throwing away the heritage of their wood-addled brethren. And you will find human beings who are struggling to survive as they find themselves caught up in the games that Sidhe play.

In "Bad Company" by K D Wentworth, a New York cop must survive a harrowing night in Central Park, a land that opens up into the realm of the fey.

In "Juniper" by Elaine Cunningham, an aging Strega battles to save the life of a child from linchetto, night elves feared as bringers of nightmares.

In "Rotten Blood" by Murray Leeder, a deranged elf seeks to inflict a plague upon his people.

In "Celebrant" by Gerard Daniel Houarner, a grieving widower becomes the plaything of a seductive elf.

Twenty-two dark tales of elves, and an introduction by the creator of Poison Elves, Drew Hayes, await you inside.

Genre: Fantasy
