"I should probably start at the beginning," Zed wrote, "When things first went wrong..."

Zed, Brock, and their friends may have saved Freestone from destruction, but the fight against the Dangers is far from over. No one knows what to expect next from the dark power that forced the elves to abandon their city. And the influx of elf refugees in Freestone strains resources and brews resentment among the townspeople. Things have shifted between best friends Zed and Brock, as well, with their friendship crumbling under the weight of the secrets they’re keeping from each other.

When tensions reach an all-time high, Queen Me’Shala, leader of the elves, approaches the Adventurers Guild with a mission. She wants a small group of adventurers to go behind the king’s back on a covert mission to save her city, and Zed, Brock, Liza, Jett, Micah, and their elven friend Fel join the quest. To face a powerful form of magic thought to be extinct, the adventurers will have to learn how to rely on each other and fight harder than ever before.

Don’t miss this second installment of Zack Loran Clark and Nicholas Eliopulos’s Adventurers Guild trilogy, where the stakes are raised, the action is breathless, and the dangers will stop even the bravest of hearts.

Good gracious, what a ride! Zack Loren Clark and Nick Eliopulos have created magic again in the second installment of The Adventurers Guild series, Twilight of the Elves. For those who have yet to read the first book, I urge you to read it as soon as possible because it's amazing! For those who have already read book one, I shall try to be as spoiler-free as possible. So, let's get started, shall we?

Freestone has changed much since we last saw our young Adventurers. The elves have fled to the city, seeking sanctuary from an evil that has overtaken their own city, Llethanyl. Tensions have been high, especially with elves and humans having quite different cultures and beliefs. Brock and Zed's friendship is tested more than ever as they each struggle with their new reality. Not all is bad, however, as the elven Rangers are staying with the Adventurers Guild, including a new young friend for our heroes, Fel. Eventually, the elven Queen asks the Adventurers Guild to send some scouts to her city and hopefully help them retake it. This sets our young heroes off on a twisting, dangerous, harrowing adventure the likes they have never known.

I find it so hard to review this one without giving away any spoilers! I am still incredibly impressed by our young Adventurers. I don't believe I would be able to be as brave and strong as they are if I was placed in a similar situation. The dual point-of-view with Zed and Brock works wonderfully to get different takes on events. I have always been a fan of these two and I am glad we still got to see what's going on through their eyes. The Dangers are frightening as ever, and just like in the first book, the undead give me shivers up and down my spine. Twilight of the Elves is a fast-paced, action-packed adventure full of friendship, danger, suspense, magic, and fascinating, wonderful characters. I highly recommend this novel (and the first) to any fans of fantasy, adventure, and magical good times. I can't wait for the third and final book!
