The Halfling Book one
“There are three things I know are certain in my life. Firstly, I am a cursed halfling—part faerie, part human. Another thing I know is I hate faeries. They are deceitful, evil, and conniving. The third thing I know—and it is a certainty—nothing is guaranteed in this life, including your sanity, your family, and your world as you know it.” - Eliana Eliana finds herself propelled into a world she longs to stay away from; a world where nothing is what it seems. In a race against minds, she must master her magic and fight an unimaginable darkness, stretching throughout the realm of Grandelione. The same darkness that cursed her mother and, now, her half-brother is laying dormant in her too. It grows stronger with each passing day. Left with two options, she must choose to fight and bring peace back to Grandelione or plunge into a world of darkness and murder. Can she learn to harness her magic and bring peace back to Grandelione and her family? Or will the darkness within consume her?
