Review: Anjan by Larus Einarsson

About The Book:
(From Goodreads)

Thousands of years ago, the universe once consisted of three worlds: the world of Elves, world of Humans and the Hidden world; which were often filled with greed, evil deeds and barbaric wars. For some time, these actions had suppressed but yet still no one felt safe with the passage of time. This thrilling and action-centered story in its first serial, tells of a White Witch Kata from the World of Elves who discovers an ancient prophecy foretelling of a great threat that will bring destruction to many nations. Her mission to seek help takes her to many dangerous lands where she encounters the wrath of awaken evils who has discovered part of the prophecy. Having finally found the boy Anjan in the revelation, she loses her strength and now the task of saving her people and the other nations is left with the young boy. Anjan accompanied by loyal Elves, faces great tribulations and the imminent attack of the evil forces and their ferocious minions as he journeys to face the mighty dragon.

What I Thought:

This was just a great little fantasy. I love elves and supernaturals and this one had 'em. Larus is a very imaginative author who spins an intricate and interesting fantasy world that I was able to lose myself in. It had good versus evil, believing in yourself, and overcoming those obstacles that seem impossible all in one book. It was thoroughly enjoyable. :)

About The Author:

Larus Einarsson was born in 1956 in a small suburb of the city of Reykjavik in Iceland. He grew up in a small family house where he shared with his parents, three other siblings and the extended family members. During his youth days, he spent time often fishing with his brothers and such passion motivated him after high school to persue a career to work in a fishing vessel. He had a serious accident whilst working as a deck boss on an American Ship in Alaska and that led to a new chapter in his career where he realised he had a flare for artistic designs and short stories writing. He lives with his inspirational wife Matthildur and his old office secretary: Branda the Cat. He has three children and six grandchildren. When not writing, Larus occasionally goes fishing, play golf and loves spending quality time with his grandchildren.
