"It was Beltane Eve and student librarian Ruth Marlowe's thirtieth birthday when she stumbled over New York City's latest mugging victim. He was tall, with long, silvery hair, catlike eyes, pointed ears, and he was garbed in the finest of hand-sewn medieval wear. His name was Rohannan Melior of the House of Silver Silences in Elphame.
"How he had come to the mortal World of Iron, Melior himself was not certain. But he was positive that he must reclaim the priceless magical item the muggers had stolen from him - the Sword of Maiden's Tears. . . But in a city with as many hiding places and pitfalls as New York, what hope did one elf lord and five mere mortals have of finding and slaying the unstoppable force of evil that had stolen Melior's treasure?"; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
