Magic and Murder
When Flint Fireforge, dwarf and metalsmith, receives a wondrous summons from the Speaker of the Sun, he journeys to the fabled elven city of Qualinost. There he meets Tanis, a thoughtful youth born of a tragic union between elf and man. Tanis and Flint, each a misfit in his own way, find themselves unlikely friends.
But a pompous elf lord is mysteriously slain, and another elf soon meets the same fate. Tanis stands accused, and if his innocence cannot be proven, the half-elf will be banished forever. Solving the mystery will be a perilous task. Time is on the murder's side, and he is not finished yet.
The reluctant paternal dwarven hero, Flint Fireforge, invited to the elven kingdom of Qualinesti because of his legendary metalsmithing, meets a young, unhappy half-elf named Tanis, ward of the Speaker of the Sun himself. But when Laurana, the beautiful daughter of the Speaker, declares her love for Tanis, a deadly rival for her affections concocts a scenario fraught with risk and scandal. Outcasts and loners, Flint and Tanis embark on a mission to clear Tanis' name, uniting them in everlasting friendship. First in a brand-new Dragonlance series.
