    exciting fantasy novel

    In Evelon, a civil war amongst the Elves led to the losing side escaping through the Gate into another world where they promptly conquered the land and enslaved the native humans. Each Elvenlord has his own estate with human slaves bound to him by a magical collar and spell. However, the world is in a state of chaos because the Elvenbane, a female wizard was able to get the half bloods to revolt. The Young Lords, the second and third sons of the Great Lords, are in open revolt of their sires, wanting power of their own. Kyrtian, an elven lord who lives on a backwater estate, is different than his depraved brethren. He cares about the humans on his estate and treats them like servants. Their slave collars are only decoration and their loyalty to him makes them an army to be reckoned with. His military knowledge gets him the position of the commander of the army, his mission to put down the rebellion. On the alert for betrayal, Kyrtian also searches for the Gate in hopes of learning what happened to his missing father who sought the Great Portal. When Andre Norton and Mercedes Lackey, two of the premier fantasy writers in existence, collaborate on a work, the readers can expect an excellent tale. ELVENBORN is an exciting fantasy novel filled with action and adventure, a stand-alone work even though it is part of the half blood chronicles. Elven society and culture is so intricately detailed that one would think that the authors visited the place. Harriet Klausner

    It Just Gets Better and Better

    I love this series. The characters are great of course, but there's more to it than that. The take on elven culture is unique, as is the magic system: Elves use what we would traditionaly consider magic while human magic is closer to the Force. Dragons, who have their own veriety of magic, are incorperate seemlessly into the story. Furthermore, this series avoids a fairly common glitch in sword and sorcery books: the gender rolls are very balanced. I have often read fantasy works in which either the men or the women are the stronger characters. In this series, the protagonist is female, but both women and men play key rolls in the story. That's a big plus right there. This is a very promisising series, and I look forward to the next installment a great deal.

    great book

    Well Elvenborn was a really good book except it was not as much action as i thought it would be, but it has some really interesting characters in it. The book is so covered in detail nothing not one little thing goes un explained, both writers make it seem as if everything that they were saying was real like you could make a perfect picture of it in your head.
