Summary
"Uptight elfin historian Brangwain Spurge is on a mission: survive being catapulted across the mountains into goblin territory, deliver a priceless peace offering to their mysterious dark lord, and spy on the goblin kingdom from which no elf has returned alive in more than a hundred years. Brangwains host, the goblin archivist Werfel, is delighted to show Brangwain around. They should be the best of friends, but a series of extraordinary double crosses, blunders, and cultural misunderstandings throws these two bumbling scholars into the middle of an international crisis that may spell death for them and war for their nations. Witty mixed media illustrations show Brangwains furtive missives back to the elf kingdom, while Werfels determinedly unbiased narrative tells an entirely different story." -- From publisher
