Enjoyable companion piece,
This review is from: Elves War-Fighting Manual (Hardcover)
This is in exactly the same format as its companion piece: Orcs War Fighting Manual and, I am pleased to say, maintains the standard of its predecessor.
As usual, the author Den Patrick has spent a lot of time building this world, with its customs, insights, characters, beliefs, stories and battles. Thankfully because of Patrick's writing style and humour this is an easy read. It could have been a slog, but Patrick manages to make this manual lively and interesting.
As the synopsis states, it will suit war gamers and role-players, but also (I believe) fans of the fantasy genre as well. Thanks to Peter Jackson and the release of a few certain hobbit-based films, this should attract quite a following. Even the casual fan will find these books accessible and user-friendly. I appreciated what the book was trying to achieve, thoroughly enjoying its stories and humour.
