Title: Thraxas and the Elvish Isles
Author: Martin Scott
Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars
Format: Kindle digital edition
The royalty of Turai are trying to strengthen ties with the Elves. They send a delegation to one of the Elvish Isles to help celebrate. At the same time, Thraxas is coming along at the request of one of the Elves, who was his friend during the War with the Orcs. Unfortunately, he’s coming along because said Elf’s daughter is accused of trying to destroy the Sacred Tree AND killing the Head Priest. Makri comes along because she’s literally chased out of Turai by some thugs.
On the Island, life is pretty usual for Thraxas. No one likes him, no one will answer his questions, there isn’t enough Beer and gambling opportunities abound.
I say this for every book, but it is true: This was FUN!
Thraxas just stumbles along through the case and because of pure dumb luck, every time, solves the case. Makri gets to fight, Thraxas annoys everyone in authority and money and beer, in great quantities, are gathered and lost.
And everything is the fault of of the drug Dwa.
