Publisher's Summary

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

J. J. Sherwood brilliantly introduces a fairly large cast of characters in a way that allows the audience to easily see their personalities while secreting away some of their hidden agendas. The reader easily comes to know the elves of Elvorium, yet suspicions arise with subtle hints that still amaze with shocking realization when situations prove otherwise. Whether reading, or listening to the audio, one is drawn into the Elvan world of honor, intrigue, love, and betrayal with artful storytelling that will make you want to run out and sharpen your sword while feeling the emptiness of lost comrades. “Kings or Pawns” is an excellent story. My only complaint is that the sequel is not yet in my hands.
