Publisher Description

The deep relationship between Amaria, the princess of Abalon and Marken, the chancellor’s son, comes to a halting stop after their kingdom is almost annihilated. However, death isn’t the only thing this battle brings. Elfs come to their rescue and, as a souvenir, take the princess home with them. 

Blinded by fury, the overprotecting queen orders the extermination of the mighty elfs. Her captains know they can never win, so they are pleased when Amaria intervenes so desperately that she loses her mother. The unprepared princess is left to care for a kingdom that will demand her true love. 

A Royal Elf of Abalon is the stand-alone continuation of Anna’s Elf series. Once again she has crafted an exciting new tale full of jealousy, betrayals, and death. A Royal Elf of Abalon is a masterpiece created in the genre of Tolkien that you’ll love to the end.

“A Royal Elf of Abalon” by Anna del C. Dye is almost certainly the finest Fantasy it has ever been my pleasure to read. The human Kingdom of Abalon was ruled by the wicked and evil Queen Amathis. In her efforts to produce an heir to the throne, she wed and subsequently killed 8 husbands. Shortly after disposing of her eighth husband, she produced a girl, Amaria. A few days journey from Abalon was the elfin town, Lothia, but humans disliked and distrusted elves, and consequently had little contact with them. However, when the elves discovered an Orc army marching to attack Abalon, they knew their own town would be next, so they recalled their army from outlying areas and marched to the aid of Abalon. Arriving on the scene just as the Orcs had broken down the city gates, the elves attacked from behind and soon routed the Orcs and saved Abalon. But would this change the humans’ bias against elves? Would Queen Amathis magnanimously honor them for their timely intervention?

I have read a number of fantasies, and one thing has always puzzled me: why do the authors always seem to assign unpronounceable names to their characters, such as Cwwndyd or Xxsthal or Oquirrh? I find this very distracting; each time I encounter such a name my brain pauses for a moment as it stumbles over a word it cannot comprehend. In “A Royal Elf of Abalon”, the author not only used “real” sounding names which are easily pronounced, but she even provided a table in the very front of the book, indicating how each name is to be pronounced (just in case) and identifying who or what that name belongs to. I was quite impressed with her long before I learned that she is “an accomplished, multi-award winning author”. This book was a pleasure to read. The characters were so well-developed that I felt I would recognize them if I saw them on the street. I very strongly recommend this book for fantasy fans everywhere. It was an honor for me to review it. “A Royal Elf of Abalon” will be a tough act to follow for any fantasy story I may subsequently review.
