The descriptions and the way in which this book is written is beautiful. It reminds me of older books and stories, especially when it comes to interactions between characters. A few sentences or areas felt clunky, and you couldn’t always tell who was talking, but it didn’t trip me up a lot.
There were a lot of names. For a book this short, it’s kind of difficult to keep track of everyone, especially because the names are all unique and some are hard to remember. There are a few that are hard to say, but I’d only stumble for a moment.
The story as a whole is wonderful. The struggles, the connections, the world—they were all masterfully crafted. I love the history and the path this story paves. The ending is somewhat abrupt, however, but that makes a great jumping point for the next book. This is a quick read, and you won’t be disappointed.
The ancient elven race of the Erathiel embark on a journey across the Enchanted Sea to find a new home. With them travel the only remaining dwarves and humans from their land. They are struck by a terrible storm that leads them to a land they are not keen to call their own. Soon they will find that there is more to this new land than they had ever expected. Friends and foes, hope and loss will be their constant companions in this adventure where wizards and shape-shifting adversaries will cross their path.
