Book Suggestion: The Elven Curse
In lieu of a review this week, I wanted to instead share a suggestion.
I know there are many writers who share their works in progress on platforms like wattpad. I have not gotten in the habit of going over there and checking any out, but in the past few months, I kept seeing fellow author, Daan Katz, share links to his additions to his own work in progress.
I finally decided to click on over, and I am so glad I did.
The Elven Curse is an online production that Katz shares on his blog. It is an ongoing narration following Neel Park, an unusual and mysterious man who is the new priest in the Barlows. The Cantor, a feisty woman named Bel, helps Neel settle in, but her probing questions regarding his past and his presence the Barlows puts him on edge.
I really hate to share anymore about the story. I am only half a dozen chapters in, and I know from Daan that there is more to come, and there may be changes made in the transition from blog to print - when that time comes. So, I refuse to spoil anything for you as you head over to begin reading.
That said, I am thoroughly enjoying this world of intrigue and mystery that Daan is building around Neel and Bel. He seems to be doing quite well adding religious and political undertones in addition to gradually building the characters and the world they live in.
I encourage you to visit Daan Katz' website: The Elven Curse. Be sure you click the "Prologue" button to begin your journey with Neel and Bel. Also, be sure you follow the website so you can stay up to date on Neel's journey, and also so you can take a sneak peek into the writing methods and processes of Daan Katz.
I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend.
I am hoping to have a new review for you all next week. I am currently reading The Last Wish: Introducing the Witcher by Andrzej Sapkowski, plus am finishing the The Guardians of Ga'Hoole series with The War of the Ember by Kathryn Lasky. If you are curious about what I am currently reading, have read, and am interested in reading, you can follow me on Goodreads.
