Once upon a time
In New York City ...

Ruth Marlowe,
library science student
is turning 30!

She goes out for ice cream
that evening ...

And as she passes an alley
Ruth comes across NYC's latest mugging victim ...

Elf lord Melior Rohannan of Chandrakar.

Melior is from a land torn apart
by war over a woman,

He's lost, but Melior hasn't
just lost his way ...

He's lost a family artifact,
a dangerous magic sword ...

One that turns any
mortal who wields it
into a monster

A monster we know ...
as Grendel.

Can Melior stop Grendel
from terrorizing NYC?

Even if he does, will he
ever see his home again?

And if he does go home ...
What of Ruth?

Will their love survive?

Or will they be
separated forever?

And will they find ...
The Sword of Maiden's Tears

The Sword of Maiden's Tears (Twelve Treasures)
by Rosemary Edghill

Mass Market Paperback: 288 pages
Publisher: DAW (January 1, 1997)
Series: Twelve Treasures (Book 1)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0886776228

Stumbling across a being from the world of Elphame, a mugging victim in New York City, student librarian Ruth Marlowe and her friends learn that the muggers stole a magical sword that changes mortals into Grendel-like monsters. Original.



MAGIC GONE ASTRAY - — It was Beltane Eve and student librarian Ruth Marlowe's thirtieth birthday when she stumbled over New York City's latest mugging victim. He was tall, with long silvery hair, catlike eyes, pointed ears, and he was garbed in the finest of hand-sewn medieval wear. His name - he told Ruth and her firends, Naomi, Michael, Jane, and Philip, when they gatherd to hear his tale - was Rohannan Melior of the House of Silver Silences in Elphame.

How he had come to the mortal World of Iron, Melior himself was not certain. But he was positive that he must reclaim the priceless magical item the muggers had stolen from him - the Sword of Maiden's Tears. For the Sword, one of the Twelve Treasures of Elphame, had been given into his care, and if he could not produce it at the High King's crowning, his entire line would face permanent exile.

And humans, too, would suffer for the Sword's loss. For the curse on this magic blade was that any moratl who wielded it would be transformed into a grendel, and almost indestructible monster which preyed only upon humans. But in a city with as many hiding places and pitfalls as New York, what hope did one elf lord and five mere mortals have of finding and slaying the unstoppable force of evil that had stolen Melior's treasure?
