The Elfkin Journals - Blending Of The Races by JDeVereS

It is my expressed opinion that, to the 98 percentile, there is no such thing as a pure fiction fantasy novel! As an author, I can give my characters pointed ears or retractable fangs... I can place them on a separate world or universe... but, in the end, I am writing about real human emotions, true human responses to various situations, actual human interactions!
