Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

Lady Alexin, Eledon’s Keeper of the Keys must continue to prove her powers when her grandmother, Lady Lestin and her friend, Lady Opaline of the Gossamer Elves are kidnapped by rebels and held for ransom. Alex attempts a daring rescue, only to discover that there is far more to this plot that she immediately suspected and the betrayal extends to the highest levels of the High Council of Elders. Threatened by rebel factions, suspected by Council members and under attack by deadly spiders, the young warrior has only her wits, her fighting skills and the powers of the Keys to help her. But will they be enough to save them all?

 

The third book in the Chronicles of Eledon, Gossamer is an intriguing high fantasy book with engaging characters. Lady Alexin is Eledon’s Keeper of the Keys. When her grandmother and friend are kidnapped by rebels and held for ransom, Alex attempts to save them. In trying to do so, she discovers there’s more to this plot than she suspected and the betrayal extends into the highest levels of the Council of Elders. Threatened from all sides, rebels and Council members alike, Alex must rely on her own strength and the power of the Keys to survive.

I missed out on the background story by not being able to read the first two books in the series before picking up this one, but a few chapters in, I had a good enough idea of who was who and how all characters were connected. I love the high fantasy with the elves; it’s always been a favorite genre of mine. Alex is an amazing character, and she grew and changed a lot throughout the book which is especially impressive considering it’s the third book in a series.

Fans of high fantasy will no doubt enjoy this series, and I highly recommend it.
