Overview

In this action-filled conclusion to the Elf Realm trilogy, Matt, Tuava-Li, and Tomtar must reach the fabled elfin city of Hunaland at the North Pole. There they will plant the seed that will cause the Tree of Adri to grow anew and strengthen the invisible walls that separate the elfin world from the human. Meanwhile, Jardaine and Nick the troll have tricked Becky into joining them to supposedly rescue Matt from danger. In reality they wish to plant the Seed of Adri themselves, sacrifice Becky, and claim the glory and rewards from the elfin gods. It is a fast-paced race to get to the North Pole first and plant the seed, but unexpected horrors await whoever journeys beyond the Gates of Vattar, where the fading tree grows and where the new seed must be relinquished. Who will get there first? Readers will eagerly seek to discover if Matt and Becky save the world from impending doom and destruction and forever separate the human world from the elf realm for the safety of them all.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Caitlin Augusta
The Elf Realm trilogy concludes with humans Matt and Becky winding their separate ways to the North Pole to plant the seed that will rejuvenate the Elf Realm. Matt journeys unaware that his faerie guide, Tuava Li, intends to sacrifice him when they plant the seed. Becky remains ignorant of the fact that her Mage guide, Jardaine, has lied about her intentions and plans to sacrifice her as well. Princess Asra and King Macta also undertake the quest, Asra to find Becky and Macta out of his self-aggrandizing love for Asra. As Matt and Becky near the roots of the dying tree, Yggdrasil, they encounter danger from the underground Ouroborus monsters, as well as the quest members. The series ends with fast-paced escapes and a quiescent healing for the survivors. Kirk deals with the issue of climate change and personal sacrifice in his Elf Realm trilogy. In this process, inexplicable violence and death emerge, which may disquiet or confuse readers. This book's three story lines weave the action together and build dramatic tension. While Matt and Becky's characters seem less developed, Tuava Li and Macta undergo challenges that illuminate subtle facets of their morality. Matt sometimes possesses an unrealistically adult sensibility: deciding he could kill a friend for the greater good seems outside his maturity. Kirk's black-and-white drawings illustrate intimate and frightening moments from the adventure. While not a stand-alone purchase, Elf Realm's final twists and turns will please readers of this series. Reviewer: Caitlin Augusta
