''Griffin’s Daughter'' is a trilogy of fantasy novels by Leslie Ann Moore. The central character is Jelena, a [[HalfHumanHybrid half-elf]], neice to a human baron (by way of his sister, who died in childbirth). After Jelena’s uncle agrees to hand her over to another noble as a concubine (an arrangement closer to slavery than an arranged marriage), she runs off to find her father’s people in Alasiri, the elven lands. Accompanying her is her cousin, Magnes; the only member of her mother’s family - and the only human, other than her foster mother, Claudia - who treated her like a person (and who is running from his own personal turmoil).
