This is the tale of Gorgon Elfhunter, a monstrous, mysterious creature who has sworn to destroy all the Elves of Alterra—until none remain. It is the story of Wood-elven heroine Gaelen Taldin, who has sworn to rid her world of the Elfhunter even as she is hunted by him. The conflict between them creates a tangled web that blurs the line between Light and Darkness, love and obsession, free will and fate. Filled with moments both tender and terrifying, thrilling yet thought-provoking, it is a timeless epic fantasy suitable for readers of all ages. Join the Company of Elves, dwarves, mortal men, and delightfully intelligent horses. Come to Alterra—the “World that Is”.
Newly remastered by Parthian Press, with illustrations by the incomparable Hope Hoover, this second edition will intrigue and delight fans of the series as well as those who have yet to discover it.
“Best villain since Darth Vader!”
“Truly captivating! The eloquence with which C.S. Marks writes is extraordinary.”
“Breathtaking. Brutal. Brilliant.”
I really enjoyed this book. The characters are very well developed, and enjoyable. As well as the story itself. I love how the story progresses and what happens to all involved. Gorgon is so evil! He stole the show. What an awesome bad guy. If you enjoy a book that has well-written world building and engaging characters, this book is for you. I loved Gaelen and Nelwyn's relationship the most. We met them as they are seeking Gorgon (even though they are unaware, at first, who or what is killing elves). They are amazing, talented elves that love and look out for each other.
