Review: At the Walls by Alon Shalev - A Great Read!

This was a great, easy read! The characters were well-rounded and lively. The story has some of the typical elements of classical fantasy, but with fresh twists which keep things interesting. The action is fast-paced, and the author's imagery and descriptive writing is very good! Unlike so many fantasy novels these days, Alon Shalev was able to keep his story brief and to the point. And as a side note I was surprised to find that his book is also very well edited. Good job, Alon!

Without giving too much away, At the Walls is the story of a young elf's rise to power and his struggle with his destiny. There's plenty of action, unexpected plot twists, and even a romance to keep things interesting. I would definitely recommend this book to fans of the genre!
