The moment Astan Hawk accepts his clan’s challenge to protect the young Elf Queen Jelani, trouble dogs his heels. Jelani’s human upbringing clashes with clan tradition, spurring dangerous intrigues within the Circle of Elders. Soon even the motives of Astan’s father, Daven, come into question. With nowhere else to turn within the clan, Astan has no choice but to ask Jelani’s human friends for help. But paranoid hermit Crispy, empathetic social worker Iris, and computer whiz Lane complicate Jelani’s unexpected pregnancy and her attempts to rule the clan. And hiding in shadows, outcast Grigor Biren plots revenge for the loss of his mentor by seeking the help of powerful elf mages who live deep within the forest. Can Astan fulfill his promise to keep Jelani safe when the whole world seems to have turned against them?  || READ AN EXCERPT ||

REVIEWS:

“THE ELF CHILD, second in a series about the Clan Elves of the Bitterroot series by Lyndi Alexander is another great, fun read. Daven’s vow to protect the Elf Queen Jelani (who also happens to be his new wife) becomes quite complicated by the pending arrival of their new baby. Human and Elf traditions and beliefs clash as they traverse this new life together. Couldn’t put it down!” ~ reviewed by P. Micosky [FIVE STARS]

“THE ELF CHILD is highly recommended for fantasy readers who like a contemporary setting and plenty of action.” ~ reviewed by John R. Clark for TCM Reviews

“Every page of THE ELF CHILD is packed with mystical, imaginative, phenomenal plots and characters that will spark every readers’ imagination. As Ms. Alexander heads into the next book of her series, THE ELF MAGE, fans can only wonder who will be left standing when the Clan Elves of the Bitterroot come to an end.” ~ reviewed by Feathered Quill [FIVE STARS]

“I really enjoyed reading THE ELF CHILD. Having grown up in the area, it’s been a pleasure to read Alexander’s interpretation of the area. The characters are well-rounded and entertaining, from the Elf Queen and her mate/true love, to their close and neurotic friends. This book carried more suspense and it will be hard to wait for the next book to come out!” ~ reviewed by Jeffrey A. Caler [FIVE STARS]

“Lyndi Alexander’s second novel in her series, Clan Elves of the Bitterroot: THE ELF CHILD, is a winner. Suspense abounds, with danger lurking around every tree in the forest. I truly couldn’t stop reading!” ~ reviewed by Dr. Jane Nixon White [FOUR STARS]
