Summary

Whilst the ravages of the Dragon’s Blight are crashing against their border, the elves of the Whispering Woods are sheltered in the sleepy village of Oakford. A new elf, Diadan, is born and the quiet of the haven is disturbed. His mother passes during labor and his father, distraught, commits suicide, leaving the orphaned Diadan at the mercy of the Royal Court.

As a plague creeps into the forest’s edge and no new children are born in the village, is he somehow tied to the growing darkness?

Thrust onto a path that will see his homeland burn, Diadan must flee into the unknown of Northern Neeska. Living a life tormented by nightmares of all that he bore witness to, can he battle his inner demons and return to reunite his people and reclaim his homeland?

The prequel to Dragon’s Blight and A Tailor’s Son explores the plight of the elves, the rise of the mighty Pole army, and how the Scorched Lands came to be.

Interesting origin story

I really enjoyed this installment of the Oakenfall Chronicles. There were one or two scenes that I felt could have been expanded upon more, but the story made up for it and you can see how the author has grown from this first book (in terms of date of writing, not story sequence). Keeps your attention throughout and the characters are interesting - definitely brought to life by the narrator too!
