Battles great and terrible, small and bitter, raged across Known Space as the wars of Elves and Orcs played out their legacy of hatred across the stars themselves. Epics would be written, songs would be sung; but wars are fought by real people with loves and families and homes. All Shaundar Sunfall ever wanted to be was a Star-Pilot. Raised on his father's ship, he has found an affinity for the stars -- although as a mixed-race elf and a bit of troublemaker, he often runs afoul of his commanding officers. Now the orcs have returned to once again wage war on their ancient enemies. The fate of his people is at stake. Although he is too young, Shaundar lies about his age to join up. But he is about to learn that no matter what the sagas say, war is no great adventure. Part naval adventure, part high fantasy, part space opera, and part war novel, A Few Good Elves is like nothing you've ever read before -- and won't soon forget.

Praise for A Few Good Elves:
A Few Good Elves is one of the best SFF military stories I've ever read. The world is both logical and imaginative, with a heavy dose of just plain great characters and an adventure to match. There is no lack of humor, darkness, struggle and success in this tale which combines the high fantasy of Lord of the Rings with the naval drama of Master & Commander. The main character has struggles that build an elven culture which results in an epic world - just the right size for a war story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. This book is a great read. No matter what genre you favor, there is something for you to love.
Elves & orcs in space, so cool! I really enjoyed this. It’s a completely different space faring experience. Very beautiful descriptions. Real characters with lots of depth. Great job! I can’t wait for the next one.
Every time I pick up my Kindle I want to open A Few Good Elves and get back to reading.
