    Okay story

    I thought it was an okay story, but you should read The Kingdoms and the Elves books AND the Service of Dragons books before reading this one.

    A MUST READ

    I can honestly say that this is the ultimate book. After I read it, all I could do was gape at the foreboding cover in awe. The enchanting story begins innocently enough, with courageous Seth worrying about the coming storm and what will happen to his people. Then we learn about Adrina and the Kingdoms and it is truly wonderful.

    A total waste of paper

    This book kills trees to no purpose. Shallow, poorly plotted, with no evidence of proofreading. A typical self-published effort.

    Best Books!

    I am a junior in college and I absolutely LOVE The Kingdoms and the Elves books! The Elf Queen and the King books are even better! I can't wait until the next one comes out. It was like a key to another world. It is wonderful!

    WOW WOW WOW

    This book was very good. Robert Stanek did as great job writing this book, After you finish I am positive that you will want to read all Stanek's other books. It is a book about a boy who has dark powers, a girl who dreams of a journey and the elfs. All the characters have a very important part in the story. At first you will think that some characters do not play a very important part but in the end they do. I told my friend about this book and he also loved it! We both are looking forward to reading the second book. I hope you enjoy this book as much as we did. If you enjoy this book please read the second one Elf Queen and the King 2.

    The Elf Queen and the King

    I really liked The Elf Queen and the King. It's exciting, funny, and really keeps you guessing as to what is going to come up with next. This is a great book for any age, even though its recommended for 9-12. Anyone older than that who has an imagination, and who likes lots of action will like too. You know it couldn't be avoided so here comes the comparison to Harry Potter. They both have wonderful characters and imaginative settings. I'm a big Harry Potter fan but The Elf Queen and the King is a lot more like Lord of the Rings in its action and deep detail. But don't read this to find another Harry Potter or another Lord of the Rings. It is really a unique story. It's a great read. You'll be hungry for more afterward and book 2 is already available! So this is great news.

    Wonderful Young Adult !!!

    This is a young adult version of Elf Queen's Quest, Robert's best-selling fantasy book for adults. A superb debut! This is a great story with fun, interesting characters; a world that comes alive and an overall sense of wow. The story leaves the path open for the remaining volumes in the series while offering a wonderful introduction to Ruin Mist. What more could you ask for? Don't miss out on the second book: The Elf Queen and the King Book 2. The second book gets even better~!

    The Elf Queen and the King Book 2

    Elf Qeen and the King Book 2 is fantasy epic. It's the best I've read since Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. I read this book 5 times! The story is about a warrior, a wizard and a princess and their friends. This book starts where book 1 ends. The action is nonstop. If I had to rate my favorite books of all time this would be at the top with Elf Queen and King Book 1 next. I think every one should read this

    Excellent!

    What a great story! This was so much better than anything I've read lately, except maybe the 'Taggerung' in the Redwall series. I've already ordered the second Stanek book.
