Mr. Freed brings a lighter touch to this adventure though there are the requisite battles and mayhem, good versus evil. There’s a special cab driver, a request for an autograph from a surprising source, a beautiful kidnapped princess, a gorgeous dark queen, and world domination at stake as part of the story. You might run into a gargoyle, a gnomes, dark elves, trolls, dwarves, and more, but in surprising roles. And then there is Murray. As Daniel comes out of his “who knew” brain freeze in the face of his new reality, his military training comes in handy as he is thrown into the culmination of 1000 years of history.
This story is fresh and a little tongue-in-cheek, a nice fantasy change of pace with twists here and there that make you have to keep on turning the pages.
Today I’d like to introduce you to yet little-known but remarkable author Christian Warren Freed and one of his books ‘Where Have All the Elves Gone?’. The book is a work of fantasy genre woven into real where the fantasy itself appears to be quite “canonic” and so old school, according to the rules of the genre. You won’t find any supernatural and concocted out of thin air plot twists here. On the contrary, approaching another twist you’ll probably say to yourself ‘I knew!’, but this moment will be chosen so unexpectedly and at the same time logically, so that might make you just smile contentedly and continue reading.
The book tells us the story about a former US Army veteran who becomes a fantasy novelist after serving in the army. The main character of the story is more or less Christian’s self-portrait and it’s quite clear that he reflects many of his thoughts and life impressions. It’s true that our author served in the US Armed Forces and was in hotspots and this experience, to my opinion, has had a positive impact on his works: unfortunately or fortunately the author experienced the war firsthand, he knows how the war itself operates and the ‘military’ part is the strong point not only of this book, but also of other his works. But back to the plot of the story where the real world suddenly was through with this good old fantasy and switched to snotty romantic ballads about vampires and that makes our hero sincerely and quite evidently discontented. I guess here the reader would easily draw a parallel between the specific period of time and the compositions. Dissatisfied with the refusal to publish his new book the main character meets his agent. And that’s where it all begins! Further story (which I’ll not reveal here) contains both intrigues and conspiracies of all possible kinds. Though indirectly but still, the author will raise the issues concerning our society, the main character, as it should be in fantasy books, will make new friends and defeat the enemies, the characters will be able to rethink many of their old prejudices. The characters are described mildly interestingly, the format and the size of the book haven’t allowed the author to go deep into describing characters in detail, and again, it was not necessary. However, some characters have remained unknown but it’s rather deliberate author’s choice and plot’s peculiarity.
Now let me say a few formal words about ‘technical’ features of the book. For foreign reader it’s easy to get a digital copy of the book on Amazon. There it’s also possible (and I highly recommend it) to get familiar with other two works of Christian Warren Freed, each book is the first book in his two different book series devoted to more “traditional” fantasy world.
