About Elf Child Zero
Zero is a Vættir, a magical forest Elf Child from ancient times. Vaettir are feared and worshipped in remote parts of the world. Facing destruction, they dispersed the five Symbols of Power across parallel worlds – Earth, Terra, Rithmee, Catalph, and Fendinn’s own world, Darkal. Zero and his biological mother the Vættir Prime hid from Fendinn until discovered by Davey Smith.
Zero alone has the power to travel between worlds, using a magical ring to conceal him from Fendinn. He is unable to communicate easily, seeming innocent and naïve. He is also a mathematical genius with telekinetic powers, who must learn how to love.
Fendinn is a ritualistic killer, carving an ‘X’ across the faces of her victims. She also removes their teeth and eyes to increase her strength. She craves eternal life in physical form, but can only achieve it by consuming the energy of the Symbols.
This fast-moving, mind-bending novel is about the coming of age of Elf Child Zero, the discovery of who he really is and of what he is capable. It is also about the meaning of love.
