"Best villain since Darth Vader!"
"Truly captivating! The eloquence with which C.S. Marks writes is extraordinary."
"Breathtaking. Brutal. Brillian."
Elfhunter is the first book in the Tales of Alterra, World That Is trilogy. I love to read books in the fantasy genre when the book is well written. Elfhunter did not disappoint me in this department. I admit the story started a little slow for me but the pace quickly accelerated. C.S. Marks descriptive writing brought the world Alterra to life. The characters were well developed. I felt emotionally connected to each of the characters. I love this quality in books. The villain, Gorgon, is one of the best villainous character I've read in a long time.
I must warn readers that Elfhunter is a lengthy book. It is 536 pages - not a book easily read in one day. I hope everyone picks up a copy of Elfhunter. I think you will enjoy it.
The author provided me with a copy of the book for an honest review.
