Summary

Book 1: An Epic Elf Quest

Carnage and terror are in the air. Vesus wakes up in an environment of desolation. His elven village has been destroyed and his memory is shattered. Moreover, he suffers in quiet agony since the girl of his dreams has been captured by brutal creatures.

Terra is a kingdom with numerous secrets and magical mysteries, which have been buried deeply in the past, but the elven hero is determined to restore what has been lost.

With a mission in mind to rescue his loved one, he finds himself getting increasingly twisted into a complex history of wars, adventures, and legends. Along his journey to the sword of Adamas, friends and foes cross his path, testing him to the core. The outcome of his endeavors will be unknown… for now…

Book 2: The Journey Continues

It doesn't stop. The retrieval of the first diamond is just the beginning of Terra's future. The challenges of its varied landscape and the creatures lurking beneath the soil stand prepared to test Vesus courage once again. Accompanied by valiant warriors with shared goals, the pursuit to his captured bride and the liberation of the elven race is defined by some of the most lethal circumstances they have ever faced.

The magical diamonds they seek are hidden amidst frightening foes and perilous puzzles. However, the determined elves are not without purpose and show the power of perseverance as they explore every possible location to finish what they started…

An evil city, and a city that's even more evil

The elven city Rensville, or village... whatever... is full of human trafficking, imprisonment based on false accusations, and brainwashing religions, but in the orc city Borgul, orcs cage-fight, dump their corpses in sewers, and impale heads on the castle porch. You take your pick.

Epic elves

Very cool book. More so targeted towards young adults, I think, but still fun for adults as well.

Written in the present tense

I had to get used to the writing style at first, but once i got into it, it actually made more sense and promoted action and fast-paced scenes. I started enjoying it more and more as the chapters elapsed.

good combo

The elven saga is a genius book series written by someone who is not shy to go to extremes of horrific descriptions and full-blown actions scenes. Nice job, Emanuel.

Interesting tale

It must be some kind of thing nowadays, but the hero's journey is evident, and the hero is a young guy with raging hormones but a great determination and exampler for all of us with our goals.

I love the hear more

The author and narrator cooperated on a level some of us may not understand. This book has symbolism and condemns certain sins of society, while weaving an epic action story and some romance into the novel. Amazing.

I saw it coming

Yep, I knew his parents were probably dead. It's a classic epic hero's journey. No need for them. And yes, there is the hot, perfect girlfriend with the sexy body and the innocence but aggressiveness to fight for her survival. Makes total sense. And then there are the invincible orcs. What?! Invincible? How can you even win then? Oh, the magical sword. Check, check, and check. This has all the elements of the perfectly put-together fantasy story.

The elves are no wimps

Sometimes in fantasy stories, elves are seen as really feminine. In this one, they commit all the sins of Sodom and Gomorra, they don't shy away from violence, and they fight hard. It's almost as if they are the roughest race on Terra, until you get to know the orcs a little, then you know they are nothing. This is kind of a dark, young adult fantasy story with some blood and gore, some romance, and a typical quest to an absolutely evil enemy. Very intense.

good story

everyone kinda tiptoes around an invulnerable enemy, but Emanuel cuts to the chase and make the orcs unkillable. I liked the approach. I requested this book and received it free of charge.

I was into it

This was an intense story, with action, romance, and some macabre scenes (nice word, huh?). The characters are a little stereotyped sometimes, but I guess that's what I liked about it anyway. The hero rescuing the girl and defeating the ugly monsters. This theme is everywhere, and it's definitely dominant in this book.

Excellent story

I love the way this author approaches the epic fantasy genre. It's nothing about all these geeky potions or spells (although they are definitely in there). More so, it critiques society by painting a picture of a wicked village that gets destroyed. Emanuel Fynn depicts orc society as even more horrific and anarchic, and leaves us with the question of whether or not wickedness deserves destruction. Out of Rensville, only a handful of pure people escape, and Vesus begins the hero's journey to rescue Sylana and defeat the orcs.

Vesus and Sylana

It's all about several topics, like the romance between these two young elves, the destruction of the elven race, and the despicable orc race. The Sword of Adamas is the solution. The destruction of Rensville is a symbol for everything that's wrong with our society. Is this book predicting the destruction of the world because of righteous indignation from our creator?

I can say nothing negative

I think the author replaced a few synonyms and messed up on that part, but the story is amazing. You can't get any better than that, and the audiobook version has such good voices that I'll listen to it over and over again.

If you like fantasy action

Fun and entertaining

I was listening intently as I hoped Vesus would rescue his beloved Sylana and free the curse by retrieving the Sword of Adamas. Intense story. A little dark sometimes.
