Reviewed by Carla Trueheart for Readers' Favorite The Grey Elk by Kevis Hendrickson is a short story that includes elves and dwarves and reads like a tale or fable. The story tells the tale of Naran Jasar, a healer who has a specific connection with animals. In his journeys, Naran comes across a cow who no longer gives milk, but after Naran gives the cow some herbs, the cow gives milk, thus pleasing its owner. Naran's healing abilities endear him to a community that does not particularly seem to like his kind, and soon he meets a beautiful woman and marries her. After marriage and a daughter, Naran moves his family to an area with dwarves, but because the dwarf prince is dying of disease, Naran must step in to create a special potion. The short story concludes soon after that, keeping the reader engaged as the stakes get higher. Author Kevis Hendrickson has a distinct, flowing writing style that harkens back to old world fables or bedtime stories. The Grey Elk is a short read, but the author still manages to make the story cohesive and the characters easy to envision. Because the story is short, the ending does sneak up on the reader, but it is nonetheless satisfying. I especially enjoyed the magical elements and the specific items used to make the potion for the prince. I look forward to reading more short stories from Kevis Hendrickson, and I would recommend the story as a bedtime read for children, to short story fans, and to those who enjoy stories of animals, elves, and dwarves. Readers who enjoy magic and fairytales will appreciate the book as well and should be able to finish it in minutes.

Holy crap was this ever short! I was done in 15 minutes including distractions. But no less enjoyable. And what a beautiful eye catching cover, even for such a short little tale! Felt like a little fairytale with a nice feel good moral to the story. Pleasant read for children, and adults alike. I commend the author for building the characters up so well in such minimal length. He had me fairly intrigued, even though the ending felt a little rushed for my taste. But I very much enjoyed his style of writing.
