The elven city of Elvorium has become corrupted to the core by politics. With his father dead and The Royal Schism at his back, Prince Hairem becomes the king of the elven world on Sevrigel. Young and daring, Hairem is determined to undo the council's power, but quickly finds his loyal council members brutally murdered by an assassin loosed within the city. As corruption and death threaten to tear the city apart from within, the warlord Saebellus threatens the city from without, laying siege to Sevrigel's eastern capital. With the elven world crumbling around him, Hairem finds himself in a dangerous political balance between peace and all-out war.

"Kings or Pawns" is a Masterpiece
- Wolf Walterson "Brian"
Super fun high fantasy!
Yes! Read this! High fantasy, a new world, magical creatures, lies, mystery, murder and intrigue! A book I can totally stand behind. Sherwood's first published piece is well crafted and filled with emotion.
The characters are powerful and endearing and the setting, vivid. Saebellus is a menacing villain and the heroes are believable. I can't wait to read the second installment!
I enjoyed Davies' performance for Alvena the most.
A moment in the book that is particularly moving is when Jikun visits Navon in prison. He humbles himself and admits his failure as a friend and "brother". This particular scene is very intense emotionally.
