Synopsis: Elgiva, a young elf banished from Elvendom, must seek shelter among the Saxons as her only hope of surviving the coming winter.
Godwin, a Briton enslaved by the Saxons, is a man ignorant of his own inheritance and the secret of power he possesses.
A mysterious enemy, who will stop at nothing to wield absolute power over Elvendom, is about to make his move.
When destiny throws Elgiva and Godwin together, they embark upon the quest for the legendary Lorestone, the only thing that can save Elvendom from the evil that threatens to destroy it.
There is help to be found along the way from a petulant pony and a timid elf boy but, as the strength of their adversary grows, can Elgiva’s friends help her to find the Lorestone before it falls into the wrong hands?
Review: A young elf, Elgiva, is expelled from Elvendom for only doing what she thought was right. Taking the advice of an ancient tree, she uses the magic she was told is stored in her amulet to alter her appearance. She takes refuge with the Saxons and befriends Godwin, a Briton slave with his own destiny. There’s a new enemy who wants to take over all of Elvendom and it’s up to Elgiva and Godwin to stop the evil which threatens their world. They have more allies and resources than they ever thought, but the road to victory is never easy. THE EXILE OF ELINDEL is a classic hero’s journey, done right. Written with humor and grace, starring complex and flawed characters, THE EXILE OF ELINDEL will enchant you from start to finish. One of my favorite characters was the irascible horse, Gramalkin, who assisted them in their quest. THE EXILE OF ELINDEL contains many twists and turns, making for a satisfying fantasy tale!
