This book is an absolute riot and there were quite a few places where I found myself laughing out loud and snickering in delight. Our two (three) MCs are the perfect mix of silly, sweet, innocent and guilty. The story is a whole heap of fun and the inclusion of the references to a certain Austrian-based movie were quite genius.
I have no doubt both authors had an absolute ball writing this story and kept each other thoroughly entertained as they worked through their chapters/scenes - they certainly kept me turning the pages of this book.
4/5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐
The best part about scaring someone from a tower, (not that killing someone is good you understand) was that they met Lars. Most beautiful human they’ve ever seen. Through all their trials, they persevered, except Benji got hooked on gingerbread. Deep, soul need, addiction.
Funny, sexy, (what the heck is an alchemist with a twist anyway?) over the top good book.
(Authors should get an award for the most imaginative use of a musical).
My biggest complaint is that we didn't get any background for Lars. This made him seem more of a flat character. He also seemed to lose his shyness very quickly.
However, I would still recommend reading this for the misadventures and humor spread throughout the book. Although definitely read the first book first, duh.😁
We reunite with wacky elf cousins (not by blood) Calarian and Benji, two memorably hilarious characters from the first book in this series. Both are off on a quest on behalf of the kings, which leads them to the land of Tournel. Of course, things couldn't possibly just go smoothly for these two - Calarian is well-meaning, but Benji is a die-hard anarchist, at least in his own mind. As a series of bizarre events unfolds, these elves-with-benefits meet sweet but clueless local cowherd Lars, and discover not only is their own relationship more than they believed, but that they also are both drawn to Lars.
I don't want to spoil any plot points, but this book is just as chock full of wacky characters and situations as its predecessor, and it's a fantastically fun read. My only tiny little quibble was that I'd like to have seen a little more character development for Lars. But the focus of this story is truly Benji and Calarian, so it wasn't a huge deal. I highly recommend Elf Defence!
What a confusing beginning. Oddly enough, once the story got going, the confusion built, but in a good way. Calarian is a lowland elf, one of the original players in the prince's rescue (Red Heir). Benji joined their little band while in the black swamp of suffocating sulfurous stench. It's no surprise Benji left his little stinkdom, no one to stick it to and no man, either.
And let's face it, two elves together are trouble. So they're sent on a quest to right wrongs and save a town from oppression. For some reason I want a preface to this elf stuff, like what exactly was taught in the collective. All Calarian remembers is a game and Benji's spouting of anarchy. Do they have classmates running around blowing things up?
For a LONG time I suspected the gingerbread was laced with some cow meadow spice stash that gave this Sound of Music inspired mountainous village a breath of sunshine happiness. Why? Because the Baron went off with a maid and she came out smiling and smelling like cinnamon. You bet I was wondering. That feeling never left because with all that delicious spicy gingerbread goodness, Calarian and Benji changed. I've never seen a happier town outside of a Disney classic. There's Julie Andrew moments. Singing. Happy cows. Trolls just standing around, happy in their unwashed presentation. I'm surprised we didn't meet Fred. Because every book deserves a Fred. But! We did meet Dave, tusks a gleaming, and carrying on with that silly blonde.
At one point I suspected a lead in to an Abbott and Costello moment and a heavy spoonful of Pinky and the Brain. And Benji, he can't stop having his mind in the gutter with jokes and innuendos. A very enjoyable read but for me I had to take this one slowly. You can't take any of this at face value! - Read on Kindle Unlimited. - Dan's Wife
