A Short Story Prequel to Sanyare: The Last Descendant 

It’s Nuriel “Rie” Lhethannien’s twenty-fifth nameday. She should be celebrating her rise to maturity, not sweating in the training hall. But life isn’t fair, and humans aren’t equal to the elves, at least not in the High Court. 

 After losing a practice bout to the one man she wants to trust, Rie is thrown into the most challenging test of her life. Will the rewards outweigh the risks?


Pixie Tamer is the prequel that leads us into Sanyare. We are given a taste of Rie in battle and her encounter with the pixies. Rie is a human girl living among the Elves working hard to earn her place among them training hard each day. After a day of letting an elf get the best of her in a fight, her guardian sends her off to survive an encounter with the pixies. However this encounter with the pixies will be anything but what she expects. 

 We are only given a few short pages of who Rie is but I can see already she’s the kind of character that I’m going to enjoy. Right off I can’t pronounce any of the other characters so far in the book but that’s alright with me I just make it up in my head which is half the fun. While Pixie Tamer is short it does have just enough to wet my appetite for the book and I can’t wait to dive into Rie’s world. While short the story is well written and captivating it draws the reader in giving just enough to leave them wanting more. I can’t wait to start the book Sanyare: The Last Descendant which is my next read.
