This debut novel, from the husband and wife team of Carol Marrs Phipps and Tom Phipps, is a fantasy delight for the reader who likes pure escapism when they pick up a book. Elf Killers is an Epic Fantasy following the adventures of young Elves who head out to rescue a group of Elven children who are snatched by Trolls while out in the woods. The Elves had been planning to pack up camp and take off on their ship for another land when the violence takes place, and the young male Elves embark on a long journey through the woods, through dark tunnels (with light courtesy of friendly Fire Sprites who light the way) and beyond the forbidding mountain, in search of the Troll camps. The book follows the tale of the Elves on their search, while alternating plot lines with the Trolls, who are portrayed as ugly, lacking in hygiene and manners, and barbaric hunters who prey on young Elves for dinner. There is a budding love triangle among the Elves and there is brutality when the two different worlds of Elves and Trolls collide, but most importantly,there is a satisfactory ending.
The authors use a special dialect for the novel with Trollish language and Elven Gwaelic words, but provide a glossary in the back of the book, which is fun to read, though I would suggest reading it before the story to immerse yourself easily into the plot. There are many characters introduced, so keep an eye on them as they make an appearance. After all is said and done, this is a mystical fantasy tale, a grown-up fairy tale of good vs evil, and an epic journey tale, which just happens to be with Elves, sprites,unicorns and trained falcons. If you enjoy pure, magical fantasy of this nature, the Elf Killers are waiting for you! I recommend this book!
