Scrolls Of Scion by T.J. Therien
The Scrolls of Scion; Rise of the Dark Queen is set in the fantasy world of Brynmor. The Drow are a race of dark elves who have lived in the Iron Hills for the last five thousand years. Now Queen Rianon wants to fight back against those who banished them from their rightful home in Sion.
Humans, Dwarves and other Elves innocently disbelieve that the Drow could be any reasonable threat to their way of life and refuse to head the warnings from the ancient Sages.
Dwarf and Human join to march on the Iron Hills and rid them of the Drow pest. However they soon find themselves facing a bigger threat than they could have imagined.
Through skilful planning Rianon has the support of The Orc, Kobold, Savage Elves, and Wolf races. An abduction of an Elf Princess and the death of the Human King all throw chaos at the ruling realms. Meanwhile Rianon’s ultimate aim is to find a way back to Sion and the magic it holds.
There are a lot of characters to get your head around in this book and I struggled with their names and my ability to place them all in the right camps at the start. However as the book went on they grew on me and I could picture them all more clearly. The ending can only mean another book to continue the storyline and tie-up unanswered questions. A well written book with some great characters.
