Amborlaine knew she’d been adopted. It would be impossible to keep that a secret. Early on, it grew clear that she wasn’t a Gnome. She didn’t sport a bulbous nose or white hair and she outgrew her father at about five years old, though in all other senses Amborlaine was Gnomish. She ate the same food, played the same games, went to the same school and most important of all she learned the same skills– the skills of being a Tinker.
Amborlaine Greentinker’ reality turns upside down, as the outside world forces itself into her life. She is unwittingly launched on a quest for the legendary dragon orbs. Laine must face decisions that will alter her destiny and the fate of the Realms of Xenkur.
Chris Claussen is an arrogant jerk, and if he’s not stopped, he will soon kill all the deer in Snow Falls. That is why Carol agrees to help him learn the ways of the deermaster, something which he has mostly had to figure out by himself thus far. But using certain kinds of magic before Christmas Eve is forbidden, and if she chooses to do so, Carol will endanger the lives of everyone in Snow Falls, not to mention herself. The only problem is, if she doesn’t help Chris… Christmas might never happen again.

With dryads whispering in her ears, Nara is unaware of the events unfolding across the world as many seek out their own roles in the unavoidable war. For even the touch of a dryad and the blessing of gods cannot fully wipe chaos from the realms.
