Elves: Rise of the TaiGethen

James Barclay
Authors:
James Barclay

THE ELVES ARE ENSLAVEDCalaius is occupied by an implacable, relentless enemy. The great elven cities are little more than prison camps. Elven slaves are forced to destroy their beloved rainforest to harvest timber for their masters.The enemy has no mercy, no honour and little skill in battle. The enemy is Man.Those few elves who remain free are fragmented, in squabbling factions, and they must unite before they can take a stand. Many believe that the battle is already lost, but Auum is not one of them. He knows Men's numbers are great but their tactics are weak; he knows Men think the Elves are already beaten; he is convinced that his people must fight now, or see their race destroyed. Takaar disagrees. He believes Elven salvation lies in unlocking their magic, not in fighting pitched battles against Man. He is determined to save his people too, but his tactics are entirely different ... and if some Elves must die now to ensure Calaius will be free of Man in the future, it's a sacrifice he is willing to make.The Elves must choose their sides. Whatever they decide, victory will win their freedom ... and failure will mean extermination ...

The elves have fled to Calius, seeking to escape the overwhelming power of the demonic Garonin. A desperate last stand in their own dimension saved the race, at the cost of 100,000 elves lost to the Garonin. The elf who led that fight, Takaar, is blamed for the losses and has gone into hiding. Now the weakened elf race is tearing itself apart in civil war, human mercenaries have arrived in Calius and are ripping the continent apart. Only one elf can unite the elves. And only one elf believes in him. A young warrior named Auum sets out to bring back the shamed hero and save the elven race.James Barclay's ELVES trilogy will tell the whole story of his immortal elven race, and will appeal to all fans of Tolkien and fantasy - this is a uniquely entertaining take on a fantasy staple perfect to bring new readers to Barclay. And old readers of James Barclay will welcome a return to one of their favourite creations and will also love seeing one of their favourite characters again - the Tai Gethan warriror Auum destined to be one of the Raven.

Chronicles of the Raven: Three AN UNSTOPPABLE NEW POWER IS RISING ... The power of the land has manifested itself in Lyanna, a five year old girl. She has the power to sweep the four colleges of magic aside, or - unknowingly - to destroy Balaia. And the colleges will do anything to control her. If she cannot be controlled, she'll be killed ... but first they have to find her. Denser, one of The Raven, is desperate to find Lyanna and her mother too - not because Lyanna's powers are ripping the world apart, but because she's his daughter. But can even The Raven find Erienne and her child when they don't want to be found? And if they find her, with thousands of lives at stake, can The Raven afford to let her live?
