Of Gods and Elves review
Author: Brian D. Anderson
4 out of 5 stars
Book Info: Genre: Epic Fantasy
Reading Level: Young Adult
Recommended for: Fans of epic fantasy
Trigger Warnings: murder, violence, fighting to the death
My Thoughts: The editing in this book is much better. While I still noticed a few, minor things, they were indeed very minor and hardly noticeable for the most part. So, much better! My copy had some formatting weirdness, but hopefully that won't show up in the ones that are for sale, since mine is a review copy.
We learn a lot more about the elves in this book, which is fascinating. We also have further interactions with some of the more interesting bit players, such as Felsafell, and learn more about the elf Elders. Like the first book, this one ends on a cliffhanger, so be sure to have the third one handy when you're finished, as you'll want to move right on to it. This is a very fast-moving series, and each of the books so far has held a very strong momentum, so you'll be turning the pages quickly. Check it out if you like epic fantasy.
Series Information: Of Gods and Elves (or find it on Amazon here) is book two in the Godling Chronicles.
Book 1: The Sword of Truth (or on Smashwords here) (review here where formatting allowed)
Book 3: The Shadow of Gods (or find it on Amazon here), to be reviewed next.
Also, see this author's guest post on my blog, linked here (where formatting allowed).
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from Great Minds Think Aloud Publishing in exchange for an honest review. I am doing the review now in conjunction with a blog tour set up by JKS Communications. All opinions are my own.
Synopsis: Armies gather for war in the frozen land of Angrääl threatening to set the world ablaze. The elves are divided and scattered and humans fall prey to the dark influence of the Reborn King. Now, Gewey is faced with his greatest challenge yet. Unite the world of elf and human before it is too late...
