In the year before Sauron's return, there was an banished elf. Elandriel found a home in the woods of Mount Mindolluin and made a life for herself by stealing from the Steward of Minas Tirith, but she did not only steal for herself. In the eyes of the people in a nearby village, Elandriel was a hero by saving them with her treasures, but her thievery would only last for a limited amount of time. When she is caught by the Steward, she is forced to return to the realm from where she was banished, the Woodland Realm. As she is faced before King Thranduil to be sentenced, he spares her for saving a village and gives her a spot on his guard. His only rule: Stay away from Legolas.
On a mission for the king, Elandriel meets Legolas and soon falls in love with him and he with her. Knowing what would happen for the both of them if Thranduil found out, they kept their love a secret. For a while it seemed simple, but with the threat of a war between Dwarves and Elves breaking out, their love may come to surface. Will the war between Dwarves and Elves break out? Or will Elandriel's worst fears become her reality?
