A hilarious fantasy novel about a young boy on the run from the Dark Lady, the world’s most famous elf.
When Bruno Trask accidentally ends up with one of the world’s most precious jewels, the Black Star, the only thing to do is run. For the Black Star belongs to the Dark Ladya rich, powerful and dangerous elf.
Pursued by the Dark Lady’s hairy henchmen, Bruno finds himself in the most unlikely places. There’s a dwarf who wants to be a comedian, a young elf who’s one hundred percent style, and an assortment of tap-dancing zombies, goblins, ghouls and gnomes. But Bruno also has to avoid ogre security guards, giant goldfish and ghost ships that sail forever through underground drains...
