The twists and turns will have reader's gasping and on the edge of their seats, anticipating what's to come next. The characters are brilliantly developed and easy for reader's to connect with. While most are likable, there are some that aren't so much. Those types of characters only add more depth and layer's to an already wonderful tale of mystical fantasy and mischief. There is so much that this story has to offer, that I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy novels full of wonder and excitement. It isn't a book that should be missed out on and it's such an amazing fantastic ball of wow.

Elves are considered highly evolved creatures - they live for immeasurable amounts of time, have incredible memories and from that, have wisdom and tolerance. But the extreme of that knowledge can push to the other side and you get someone like Karawyn who, because of having the benefit of first-hand accounts of her species' origins, is self-righteous and smug when dealing with humans and their own bumpy journies seeking enlightenment. I wanted to take the best of all believers and non-believers and embody them in these elves - like Jarrad and Dafne.
They have the gods that are the origin of their creation, but also have reverence for nature and the science of things. They are tolerant and accepting; while mirroring that with some of the extremes, like we see with Jabari. So a lot of the belief systems of the elves ultimately are analogous to what we live with everyday; or at least analogous of what we all wish we could be.
