I am astounded by the depth and breath of this dark and mythology infused story. Like The Silmarillion by J R R Tolkien, this book looks into the ancient past and blends it with the future. The epic Hunt of goblins for who is their Erlking (ruler), the cold divide between man and mythology is transversed by a child born on the border of two worlds. It is amazing to see the story and the ideas grow throughout this dark and tortured story. The reader is bound to the darkness with the child, as she survives after her entire family is destroyed by an inclusion of Goblin raids. Janneka was enslaved and tortured by her captor, when given nearly broken to Soren. For a hundred years she scrapes by has his Thrall, thought to be his playmate and toy, but her wounded body haunts her as she struggles to survive. When the Erlking dies in a battle of will, The Hunt begins, and the tests abound. How will Janneka survive? Does she use the opportunity to escape to the human world? Or will she become what she despises?
