Summary:Matt is injured when he steps on a diamond shoe belonging to the elves. A dispute over the shoe pulls him into the fairy realm where factions are plotting and massing for war with each other and the humans infringing on their boundaries. As Matt struggles to keep his family and friends from harm, and the Elven Tuava-li fights to keep her people safe and learn control of her magick, a new danger arises. The very cords of the world are weakening and no one knows why.
Review:Book one in a series. Told in a flat, somewhat hasty style, this book is best suited to hardcore fantasy readers who are not daunted by a longer novel.
