Jewel is a half human half Elvin female that joined the war to help keep things balanced. Her twin brother is leading the male army, trying to use men to take over the world. She joined to find a way to stop him but she knows she needs more information before going against him so she puts in motion a plan to allow herself to get captured.
Garth joined the war because there were very few places on the planet that allowed human men. The army was his only option. He is fighting to be counted as an equal. Then they capture Jewel. He sees her almost killed by neglect, beatings, and starvation. Finding out what a kind soul she is he can no longer witness her torture and for that, he is cast aside.
Can they escape and even if they can where are they going to go in a world that refuses to allow men and women to be together?
