Note! The introduction of this books shows that the Ellimist is telling his story to Rachel, foreshadowing the events of the final book of the series.
He is called the Ellimist. A being with the ability to alter space and time. A being with a power that will never be fully understood. He is the reason Elfangor came to Earth. He is the reason the Earth now has a fighting chance. And though his actions never seem quite right or wrong, you can be certain they are never, ever what anyone expects.
