Summary

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....

Vesus will win

I'm hoping for Vesus to finally defeat that orc leader and chop off his head, and rescue his girlfriend, Sylana.

Vesus is the man!

I know he is just a kid, but he has some courage and skills. I hope he finds Sylana and beats the heck out of that orc king.

Nice story

I liked the voice of the wizard, and I think it resembles some themes from Lord of the Rings, but it's better.

Must have

Seriously, get this book, or get the bundle. Whatever you want. The narrator is a pro, and the author knows how to put together a great story.

epic story

After listening the series listening to it helps keep the pacing with what's going on and makes it easier to keep up the momentum of processing through the story. while some parts are harder to follow because of how many characters there are in this series, having read it first, figuring out what is going on and where isn't too hard. Very cool guide. I really liked the manner of presentation.

The Elven Saga

Excellent and great writing is fantasy elf saga, the story is to me what that is like a never-ending story, which also cools twisted plot and each subsequent chapter unpredictability of the previous one. Really captures the book to read and makes it almost at once. The plot is very addictive and really built correctly and without delay. It is recommended to all fans of the fantasy genre.

Very enjoyable.

The twists and turns have me greatly anticipating the next book! I can't wait to find out what is in story for everyone. The magic is easily increasingly twisted into a complex history of wars. Very enjoyable and refreshingly different than so many books in this genre.I believe this book deserves a five star rating from the different points of view as shown by the author concerning the lives of different face creatures. Excellent! Good!!!

Sword of the Elves

These are good books..This story is excellent,and if you played it.....It admire us soon.The Last Wish and Swords of Destiny are collections of short stories, but the rest all follow a specific story arc so it is really better to at least read the rest in the order that I mentioned. Hope that helps!I was excited to read this book and i highly recommended.

Interesting

Sword of the Elves is an awesome science fiction story that tickled my dreams. The Terra kingdom is like a forbidden city with excellent creatures which the author, Emanuel Fynn has perfectly pictured out for me. I could always imagine this story being injected to an RPG, what a grand adventure. My friend always asks about the journey of Jesus. So each time we can bond, we would play as the characters for fun. He is passionately fascinated by this story. Good to listen.

Loved it!

I'm a big fantasy lover so this one was right up my alley. Great action and adventure throughout. Loved the main characters and thought the pacing was right on point. Looking forward to listening to more from this author in the future.

Highly Recommended

I loved the books before this so I was excited to continue the series. This book was a good continuation though it seemed to be a lot of set up for what's to come. I heard the next books are where it really gets good but if you enjoy the series this is good. The performer did an amazing job creating different voices for the many characters of the book. I think the performance made it that much better. Can't wait to start the next one!

Sword of elves audiobook

Would you listen to Sword of the Elves again? Why?

Maybe someday but it's a really entertaining audiobook. It's quite long but I thoroughly enjoyed Vesus' adventure.

What did you like best about this story?

The plot was amazing! Nothing but action and I love the character's progression. I'm really into these type of fantasy books but I would recommend this to anyone regardless.

Which scene was your favorite?

The history of wars is pretty baffling in a good way. Really sets up the whole dialogue of the sword of elves.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It took me a few days to finish this audiobook. Great for exercising and you lose yourself in the audiobook!

Any additional comments?

If you're into anything sci fi or fantasy related, this is something definitely worth check out. The story goes thru ups and down but it has a ton of action which is something I like. Good overall.

I enjoyed it

What about Tim McKiernan’s performance did you like?

Yes..

The presentation of the book is so simple so anyone can easily understand it.

Any additional comments?

A very interesting book with many twists and turns to keep it exciting. I found there were several places where the narrator's line was repeated. Very well done.
The story was good but sometimes dragged a little. The outcome of his endeavors will be unknown...for now....
