SpiritRane: I know this is a Novellet, or whatever they call them, but the book left a lot to be desired. The stoey line was good but I wish there was a lot more to it. The story explained things but it would have been nice to be enoughtin the story to be inside the Elven revolt. The book was good for the most part but a bit more meat between the covers would have been great. This is the second book I read of this author and the second time I was left hanging in the end. I would like to see this author write a full Novel, I would like to see a finished end, or a series.
The product warning made me chuckle, but the story did not. It was dead serious about a group of people being pushed to the fringes of society. Having their rights removed so slowly that they barely noticed until it was too late. For example, Rex writes about how the Elves were denied drivers' licenses because the Goblins told them they were low on laminating supplies. Then the Goblins issue a study that finds that Elves can't drive at night, so maybe they shouldn't drive at all. The elves don't even get to call their town a town...it's a camp. Because towns get to have rights and medical care. The main character used to be a warrior, but there is no need for warriors in the Goblin world. Oh the goblins are peaceful people you say? Not necessarily. They have machinery to take up the slack should they have need. So are the Elves allowed to educate themselves, to find a place in society? This book is eerie when you bear in mind what is going on in our own society. It just feels like we are moving backwards in so many ways. As if this story is a warning about where things can end up.
