An Archdemon's Dilemma


Zagan, shrouded in notoriety as a dark sorcerer, is a social misfit with a sharp tongue. His days are spent in the arcane arts and keeping trespassers at bay. At a shadowy auction, his eyes meet Nephy, an elf of unrivaled grace, and it's love at first sight. Zagan splurges his fortune to claim her. Yet, his tongue ties in her presence, leaving a chasm in their budding relationship. Here begins a tale of awkward cohabitation, with a sorcerer clueless in love's expression, and an elf yearning for her master's affection, yet both are lost in translation.
