Aberforth discovers pleasures he’s never known before at Llwrydd’s hands and ends up succumbing to the elf’s charms before long.
The mission goes awry; the human-orc alliance has heavily underestimated the strength of the enemy and Aberforth does not discover the truth until it’s too late. Though he exerts himself to his utmost, Llwrydd, the enemy general, is able to easily overpower him.
Aberforth Strongjaw is a martial genius and the champion of his clan. When their alliance with the humans draws the Redwolves into war with the elves of the Forest of Ymrion, he marches to the front lines with the men and volunteers for a perilous mission to strike at the very heart of the enemy forces.
Eli correctly guesses that his changing body would be of great interest to the dragon-obsessed Lord Esilrud, but a play at seduction to entice the duke quickly spirals out of Eli’s control as Lord Esilrud plays his sensitive body like a fiddle.
As their changes become more and more difficult to hide, Eli and Alric must take decisive action but an unexpected visit from the queen throws a wrench in their plans.
Eli continues to pursue his plans to build his wealth, while a new and dramatic change causes some pain and a lot of pleasure.
Eli’s plans are set in motion. His first target: Lord Brever, Count of Althay. Meanwhile, Eli’s and Alric’s transformations continue unabated. This time, the plug stolen from the dragon’s lair appears to have undergone some changes of its own.
Eli and Alric’s relationship deepens as they continue to undergo both mental and physical changes and Eli turns his attention to the kingdom’s nobles and their fat purses as the greed in his heart continues to grow.
One night of passion with the young footman Alric turns into a torrid fling as the first little indication that Eli did not escape from Aellir’s lair fully unscathed surfaces.
