5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful piece of fantasy with a strong message! 27 September 2015

Fine, there’s some typos. But Martinez writes in such a detailed manner, so vividly, that it’s hard not to visualize what’s going on in the world of Odealeous and hence made me forget all about them.

The sentences are short. True. Though, to me, it added that right atmosphere that one might have - being “cautious”, when you’ve been told and treated like you weren’t good enough. All your life.

Cos that’s what The Ungifted Elf is about. Eckxio was unable to cast magic. But why??
And yes, the journey might be rough - you might have to look for your fairy king to make you see they were wrong all this time, but it’ll be worth it!

The Ungifted Elf is not just some random piece of fantasy, but one with a strong message: never stop believing in yourself and your abilities!
(Thank you for the reminder… ^_^)

A great read with a lot of fantasy and old world tales. I did enjoy this book with has a hint of Tolkien, who I love. I think the author has a great writing style and has produced a wonderful adventure starring Eckxio the elf. Their is magic, adventure and a whole lot more, I think this is an author people will be anxiously waiting on titles for.

3.0 out of 5 stars short but interesting read 23 September 2015

Good characters and excellent moral for all to remember & keep in mind.

For the author: version read/downloaded could use better editing/proofreading for misspelled, misplaced & many wrong past tense words that should have been used.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing 27 May 2015
By Xavion Zenovka - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I spent quite a while staring at the blank screen in front of me to come up with a fitting description for The Ungifted Elf by A.J. Martinez. Should I compare it to the classic Lord of the Rings for its impressively epic scope? Would it be best to focus on the honest, often painful humanity of the many characters - so rare in a fantasy novel - that personalizes each point of view? Perhaps I could impress other customers here with the sheer brilliance of a plot that weaves so many seemingly disparate stories together to form a believable alternate universe in which not only politics, intrigue, war, adventure and romance can coexist plausibly, but magic as well. How could I do such a work justice?
I might as well get this part out of the way first.
But by far the most striking thing about the Ungifted Elf is the "rules" that the author breaks. AJ is not afraid to tell the tale from the point of view of some very unlikable, even immoral characters. He is bold about revealing facts from a character's past that challenge one's impressions and assumptions about their ethics. He does not lay all his cards on the table up front, but rather unexpectedly reveals details that later change the whole picture and twist the plot admirably. These risks pay off well to serve the story as a whole, bring a sense of true humanity to the people of this world and drive the reader on to the next series installment.
It's just too bad that I can't magically transplant my sense of admiration for this amazing story onto this page. Hopefully, you are intrigued enough to give it a try; it would be a shame to miss what IMHO could be the best series of the decade.
