Before the days of men, there were elves. In a time they were great and powerful, the first dwellers, the brightest ray of dawn upon the earth. They brought light and music to the world and every breeze that stirs and wave that crashes still echoes with the wonder of the fair folk. But a foulness is brewing in the east, where men deal in sorcery. They summon dire forces, unleashing a terrible power into the world. And the elves, once immortal, now fade from the earth. But knowing that all sorcery comes from Runes that were carved ages ago, Efkin, a young elf lord, races to find and destroy the hidden Runes before all is lost. He sets out to recover the horn of his ancestors that long ago summoned the forces that shaped the world. Only the horn has the power to break the Runes. He journeys into the east, but comes too close to the heart of sorcery and does not dare blow the horn. If he is tainted by the poison of the Runes the horn will sound a ruinous note that could spell the end of the earth.
This was a cute book geared towards young readers in ages 9-12.
This is the first book in the series. I know, you’re shocked that I am reading a series in order, right? So was I.
This was a quick easy read since it was written for a much younger crowd. The characters were very likable. And the scenery was incredible.
This story really grabs your right in and keeps you there. So if your young reader is into fantasy or you are still trying to get them interested in reading, this is definitely a book to get.
The author sent me an autographed copy to give away to one lucky reader.
