In a small, forgotten village at the forest’s edge, a half-elf warrior named Dramon watches helplessly as the birth of a child goes horribly wrong.
Dramon is used to hardship. He is a Hybrid, half elf and half human, and he fights every day to survive alongside his kin. They can count on none but themselves. They fend for themselves and often turn a blind eye to what happens around them, but not always: sometimes they hear of humans on the warpath, raiding the elven border. Those rumours they never ignore.
Four seasons past, Dramon and a few other warriors were sent ahead of time to one of these settlements: they hoped they could stop the humans.
They were too late then, and Dramon feels like he’s too late now…

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Throughout the Deathweaver series (both existing and future installments), the hometown of the Hybrids is brought up as an environment that changes the people who grow up there. The Day You Were Born gives a glimpse of it and gives much more context to the Hybrids, who they are and why they are who they are. As far as the story itself, the theme of birth is highly symbolic and stresses specific internal conflict within the characters.
