Elves: Once Walked With Gods (review)

Elves: Once Walked With Gods (Elves #1)Elves: Once Walked With Gods by James Barclay

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A superb read that lets up only long enough for you to take your next breath before plunging you headlong back into dizzying action. Having said that, some of the fight sequences do at times become so kaleidoscopic as to disorient. Nevertheless, this is grown up fantasy at its best. The characters are fully realized and faced with difficult choices that will challenge your loyalties. And don’t be fooled by the title. These elves have nothing airy about them; unless, that is, they’re leaping into that air to land behind you and lay you waste with a swift kick the head or a blade to the back. Highly recommended.
