Synopsis for Enchantments, a verse-novel:
is an allegorical tale told in prose and verse.
Our storyteller is E’lienna, daughter of Lady Claire, a
human, and Gle’anden, prince of elves of E’alowen.
Though born and raised in the elfin land of E’alowen,
E’lienna longs to better understand her human lineage. She
sets out from E’alowen and into human lands. There, she
visits the wizened Mage of Dur, a long-time friend to her

and her own place in the world, E’lienna discovers that her
