Publisher's Summary

"Find the Elves and return them to the world of Men!" the shade of the Druid Allanon had ordered Wren.
It was clearly an impossible task. The Elves had been gone from the Westland for more than a hundred years. There was not even a trace of their former city of Arborlon left to mark their passing. No one in the Esterland knew of them - except, finally, the Addershag.
The blind old woman had given instructions to find a place on the coast of the Blue Divide, build a fire, and keep it burning for three days. "One will come for you."
Tiger Ty, the Wing Rider, had come on his giant Roc to carry Wren and her friend, Garth, to the only clear landing site on the island of Morrowindl, where, he said, the Elves might still exist, somewhere in the demon-haunted jungle.
Now she stood within that jungle, remembering the warning of the Addershag: "Beward, Elf-girl. I see danger ahead for you...and evil beyond imagining." It had proved all too true.
Wren stood with her single weapon of magic, listening as demons evil beyond all imagining gathered for attack. How long could she resist?
And if, by some miracle, she reached the Elves and could convince them to return, how could they possibly retrace her perilous path to reach the one safe place on the coast?

The best in the far

The Elf Queen is truly epic and continues to build the story in book three of a four book series. I've already finished book four, which is every bit as good as this story, so felt compelled to come back to book three to write a review. This story is suspenseful, exciting, filled with drama, and every bit as entertaining as you would hope to experience in this genre. Terry Brooks is a wonderful story teller complemented with John Lee's unique narrating style which only enhances the listener's experience.

If you are undecided about this 4-book series and are previewing what others have to say about this epic fantasy story, you will not be disappointed if you take the plunge. Each story continues to build on its predecessor with new characters introduced along the way. I especially enjoyed not having to wait at least a year for the next installment but was able to proceed with the next book when I was ready. The story is suitable for young adults and above and is not predictable as many YA fantasies are. A great read, highly recommended.
