They say that you judge the book by its cover. This is not the case with the book I’m featuring today.
The Battle of the Erathiel: Across the Enchanted Sea by Constanza Mayer is a lovely fantasy book which is not presented well by his cover. It’s way better than it seems to be.
The author has created a wonderful world which she describes with beautifully written vivid descriptions.
There are no scenes of bloodshed in this book, there is some violence but it doesn’t go into gory details, making it a read for all ages.
I loved the relationship Thinidiel and Nimtar shared, a Frigga – Odin kind of love, as I enjoyed the flirting game between Lothar and Eteri.
The story takes a twist when one of the characters has a unique, magical experience.
I was a bit surprised by the abrupt ending, I expected a smoother one, but I guess that when Volume Two comes out, readers will be able to read sequentially these two books and the way this book ends won’t matter anymore.
Overall, I enjoyed this ride to a magical elvish world and I can’t wait to read Volume II.
