Book Review

I liked this story a lot. It has magic, struggling lovers and tough decisions with potentially fatal results, as well as a little elf fighting for his (mental) freedom. All of the above make for a great mix, and even though this book is a spin-off from a series (one I haven’t read), I found it easy to follow and enjoyable. I liked the mix of ‘real world’ and the magic elements that are introduced into it.

Elijah is the human who tries to defend his lover, Dust, from a sorcerer who is intent on making Dust his slave. Rather than allow this, Elijah will do anything to fight the evil man, ready to die himself if needed.

This heroism inspires Wisp, an enslaved elf, to start thinking about his own situation. The promise of freedom seems more scary than hopeful at first, but Wisp makes great progress as the story develops.

Dust loves Elijah more than his life, and is just as ready to suffer and die for him as Elijah is. He is more skeptical toward the elf at first, and the challenge for him is to learn to trust someone other than Elijah.

If you like stories about battles for freedom, if magic is your thing and if evil sorcerers don’t scare you, you may like this short story.
