I have found a very few high fantasy novels that I have really enjoyed and Elfhunter was one of them. I loved the way the world unfolded for you. In many ways it started out as a mystery novel and that made it all the more exciting. Gaelen is a fantastic main character who definitely is strong and independent which is what I am always looking for in a female heroine. Elfhunter involves everything you could want in a book and more. I am really surprised that I hadn't heard of this book yet. It is crazy that it isn't more popular than it already is.
I immensely enjoyed reading this and the only criticism I have would that the way the novel began was a little disorienting as a reader. Just for the fact that C.S Marks kind of throws you into this world, with out much background. Once you begin reading further it is something you will get over because you be in love with this story just like me. I think this book would be really cool translated and adapted as a movie, it would be amazing to watch.
