4/5 Review by the Bibliophilic Book Blog:
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!
