By H. L. Chandler
In the land of Goschen, two warring kings are making life impossible for villagers and forest folk. Del Hobin, the tower clock keeper in Wineriver, holds a secret that could stop the war, but no one has ever used such a weapon. For all he knows, it will make things worse. He seeks advice from his wife, yet no one can make this decision for him. It is Mick, an arrogant Elf, who becomes his confidant and adviser. Kings raining death and destruction are bad enough. Del isn’t sure using the amazing clock’s ability is any better.
