After the world is torn apart by a war between elves and humans, an orphaned half-elf must live among the humans disguised as one to avoid the bigotry of both sides. His life is that of a poor, simple farmhand, but that soon changes when a bard from his childhood reemerges to protect him from a bloodthirsty pirate bent on using the half-elf to open a mystical passage known as the Door of Sight Unseen.
Reese lives with crippling anxiety, depression, and a womanizing chauvinist named Tony. As Reese struggles to get over his not-so-recent heartbreak, he finds himself tired of the way his roommate treats the opposite gender and demands Tony come clean about his ill intentions toward Janet, a woman whom he just recently met. When Tony refuses to cooperate and leaves town for business, Reese takes it upon himself to tell Janet the truth.
