8,994 P.E.-The elven city of Elvorium has become corrupted to the core by politics. With his father dead and The Royal Schism at his back, Prince Hairem becomes the king of the elven world on Sevrigel. Young and daring, Hairem is determined to undo the council’s power, but quickly finds his loyal council members brutally murdered by an assassin loosed within the city.
As corruption and death threaten to tear the city apart from within, the warlord Saebellus threatens the city from without, laying siege to Sevrigel’s eastern capital. With the elven world crumbling around him, Hairem finds himself in a dangerous political balance between peace and all out war.
Review: I'm a big fantasy fan and as such I find it's rare to see a world of elves that's new and refreshing. That is what I found in this story. I find it very different for there to be such a militant style in elves, and there's plenty of intrigue throughout the story. Here we have a novel that develops both characters and the plot and holds interest throughout. This is another story where I actually wish I could read all of the books together in order. Not sure how long this one will be but I can't wait to read the next installment
