In the first book of Tales of Arvia, our human character, Darin, accepts a deal from an unscrupulous dimension broker, finding himself completely unprepared for the harsh realities of Arvia, a world crawling with fantastic predators commonly exceeding ten times the size of an ordinary human.
Torn between a fear of the horrific creatures and his life-long dream of charging in dungeons, magic longsword in hand, his existence is turned on its head a second time upon meeting Rinloh, a giant harpy intent on making a meal of him. After a rough start, they form an unlikely friendship, a friendship strained by the fact that the human citizens of the city of Xin consider consorting with a giant predator a capital offense, while the harpies consider the human citizens a tasty part of a balanced diet, with the human hunt a harpy rite of passage.
Yet the two must overcome the most monstrous of conspiracies as the citizens of Darin’s new home city begin disappearing, and the list of suspected causes could fill an encyclopedia.
Harpyness is Only Skin Deep blends outlandish fantasy, the most unlikely of friendships, and endearing characters in a uniquely witty, charming style.
