The premise sounds nice enough, but it's your detailed description of the author's writing style, themes, and such that really compels me to want to read this book. Great review!

@bluemel4 you are a master at giving a detailed and professional review without sounding like a boring college professor. You made this book appeal to not only fantasy fans, but to anyone who enjoys a great review and gets swept up in the excitement of other readers. I will add this to my list so that I can brush up on my eleven skills ha ha ha @bookowlie you sleigh :) me

I had to stop for a minute and figure out what you were referring to. You are late to the posts-party for this review. :) I will have to make "elven" my word for today...or maybe eleven!
