With the caveat that you need to have a really, really high world-building and plot ambiguity tolerance if you haven't read the rest of I Bring the Fire series yet (as I haven't.) And only have a general knowledge of Nordic mythology mostly based on Wagner Opera and Avenger movies.
There's a lot going on. There's light elf vs dark elf in Alfheim, a queen, rebel dark elves who were possibly punished light elves escaping to Chicago, Odin the all-father, etc. etc.
I never really understood what was going on in the beginning of the book when Lionel and Tara meet as Lionel's people go to Chicago ostensibly to chase escaping elves but Tara ends up seeing one of them beating a child-- this is never resolved blatantly, i.e. none of the characters explain what was going on. And there seems to have been no consequence for Lionel calling on the Destroyer? Not sure what happened there.
Also, Lionel and Tara spend the entire book escaping from various places and difficult political messes....and that was fun and great for the first two thirds of the book, and then the last third felt really rushed and strange and I got a little impatient with the obvious attraction they had for each other that mostly was channeled into forehead kissing.
But then the authors would go and make fun jokes like Tara being attracted to Lionel's pointy ears and thinking she needs to explain Spock to him...and not only Spock but Spock and Uhura......
So it's fun. And while i was confused, I didn't mind being confused for the first part.
Tara, a human, finds Lionel, an elf, under a pile of garbage and that is when her world changes and the adventures begin. Tara and Lionel are wonderful together. They remind me of Amy and Bohdi in some ways, like how protective they are of each other. The story moves quickly and find yourself not wanting to stop because you want to know what is going to happen next. I could say a lot more but don’t want to spoil it for you.
If you like this story, you will love the series.
