The first time Morgan saw the woman she tried to crush his skull with a rock. He reached out to the secretive female over the years but she never wavered in her distaste in having an ogre as a neighbor. Beguiled by a creature who could never return his love, he’s mired in affairs outside his world, surrounded by forces preparing to clash. War and plague compel Morgan from recluse to leader, protector, warrior, and negotiator. This is a love story, a tale of the arcane, friendship, jealousy, mistrust, and caring.
