When the elf army invades the United States, Aaron looses everything. His wife and children die, his family betrays him, and he learns that he is the catalyst to gecide. Rage and vengeance are the only things keeping him going. His conscience, in the form of a captive centaur, forces him to look past his anger and the inequity of his situation to make the correct choice. At the end, it is up to him to end the war. Aligning himself with the goblins, Aaron struggles with the fact that everything he kws about elves and goblins seem to be reversed. How can the goblins be the good guys when everything about them seems bad? Somehow magic comes easy to Aaron. Even the goblins don't understand how he can perform feats that usually take years to master. Aaron doesn't care how he can do it as long as he gets revenge on the elves.
