After the Great War that divided the peoples, the kingdoms of men plunged into a Dark Age that lasted 500 years. To heal the lands and restore the light, the great kings decreed that magic and all that is magical, be it creature, man, or device, shall be cleansed to dust. The cleansing raged for so long that no human could recall a time without it and it is in this time that the Dark Lord Sathar returned from the dark beyond.

Writers like JK Rowling may get all the ink in the press but there are very few writers of Stanek's caliber. The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches is a wholly engaging story, filled with delightful characters. This book gets everything going and sets up the story beautifully for the sequel The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches II.

We brought Douglas Adams So Long and Thanks for the Fish and Robert Staneks Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches on our recent road trip to So. Cal. My son and I loved both books! Douglas Adams is an amazingly talented, gifted writer. So Long and Thanks for the Fish is full of humor and enomoursly fun listening.
