“A tale of politics, environmental concerns, culture, class, and danger in many forms. Oh, and fairies! This debut novel combines many typical fantasy elements with a more human view of the fairy realm. But not to worry, there's still enough magic to keep the fantasy element alive and well!”
— Jen Colson, from my shelf books, Wellsboro, PA

With The Low Road, Daniel Kirk has created a mystical world that will keep readers coming back for more.
When Matt and his family move to a new neighborhood, they don’t realize they’ve inadvertently stumbled into the middle of massive upheaval in the fairy world. With the elves’ territory disintegrating and dark factions looking to seize control, apprentice mage Tuava-Li must defend her way of life—even when that means cooperating with Matt, a human and a natural enemy, as he may just hold the key to saving the Elf Realm from certain destruction.
