About the Book:

What would you do for immortality? How far are you willing to fall before you can rise? These are questions any mortal man would ask upon entering a mystical land where he could live for ever or go back to normalcy. Ewing, his two brothers, and his Father live near a strange tavern that leads to an elven land, Misty Woods. But, not all good things come freely. Ewing wakes up to this nightmare, locked in a cell on the other side of the door. Although it seems to be all over for the boy when we learn of his brothers betrayal, there is still hope. A female elf frees the boy and they set off to hide away before being caught. There must be something they can do to save the elves that will also save the lives of innocent boys and girls.

Author's Note:

This is my first draft of the story in a short story format. I will be looking to extend it into a novel, but am not sure if the story is as alluring to others as it was to me when I first started it. I am looking for all types of feedback that would help me broaden the plot, as well as fill in any holes. I will hopefully have a first chapter by the end of February (a rough draft of course).
