Publisher's Summary

It's against the law for elves and humans to fall in love. But laws can be broken.  

When Venick is caught wandering the elflands, he knows the penalty is death. Desperate, he lies about his identity in hopes the elves will spare his life.  

Ellina doesn't trust the human, and not merely because he speaks the language of men. Men lie. In elvish, however, lying is impossible. In a moment of intuition, Ellina decides to give Venick a chance: learn elvish, reveal his truths, and she will set him free.  

That is not, of course, what happens.  

As Ellina and Venick come to know each other, their feelings start to shift. Then Venick uncovers a dark secret, and suddenly, the fate of the elflands seems to rest in his hands. But every choice comes with consequences, and Venick must decide if it's worth risking his life to protect a race that hates him, all to save an elf he's not allowed to love.  

Magic, love, and fate collide in this fantasy adventure from S. G. Prince.

Liked it!

The narrator was good, the voices gave color to the characters. It's a good start and now I'm curious about the next book in the series.

Interesting take on elf and human relations

A good start. A good narrator. I like the different take on elven-human relationships- it’s close enough to the elves of all other storylines that the difference isn’t jarring but it’s fresh. Definitely like the female lead. The story is in no way finished and I will be getting book two.

Pretty imaginative

The story is quite good. The idea that a person speaking Elvish is unable to lie. The use of conjuration magic. All really well done.

Two things that bothered me however was:

1. The repetition of phrases and words “He blinked”, “She blinked”, “reeking gods” “hell and damn.”

2. Venick’s personality. Somehow Venick is a master strategist but yet he rushes headlong into battle and fights like a madman.

Those two things aside. I loved Ellina’s character and feel like the author give Ellina more stage time in the next book.
