Why this book?
A mystical tree named the Ellcrys, which keeps demons trapped in an otherworldly prison, is dying, and a fiend called the Dagda More has gotten loose. Hope for restoring the Ellcrys lies with the elven princess, Amberle, and her protector, Wil Ohmsford. Unfortunately, Wil can’t unlock the power to control his primary weapon, the demon-slaying Elfstones, so he and Amberle go on the run.
For me, it is Wil who really ties this elegantly written story together, in his genuine desire to be strong while plagued by self-doubt. I feel his pain as he strives to protect the princess and unleash his latent abilities…the Dagda More is terrifying and relentless…the momentum is nail-biting…the final showdown is magnificent.
