Wen Spencer: Elfhome

 Elfhome: Elfhome #3
by Wen Spencer
(fantasy, futuristic urban fantasy, slight romance)

In keeping with the POV expansion of the second book, this third installment has no shortage of POV characters. In addition to Tinker and Wolf, we also get POV from Oilcan and Tommy. (At a minimum. There may be others I’ve forgotten.) I have no problem with this, as it makes it more clear that this is not a romance series even though there are sex scenes. This is a fantasy series, and as such multiple narrators is a common thing.

And, as before, this picks up immediately after the events of book 2. (Spoiler alert: I know that there is a book 4, which does NOT start right after book 3 but instead catches up other characters to the “present” time. There is also a planned book 5, which DOES start right after book 3, because — as you will find out if you read this one — the book’s plot is nicely tied up, but the series plot is still wide open for more.)

I devoured this book. I started it Thursday morning, and had finished it by Friday night. And yes, both of those were work days, and I only read during my lunch breaks and once I’d returned home for the day. I found the action nicely spaced with dialogue and more introspection, but the book as a whole was so well paced that I didn’t want to put it down.

I am looking forward to the next installment — or at least, the next installment of the main plotline. I have read the blurb for book 4, and I’m not sure that it’s as interesting to me. I will probably read it, but I might see if my library has it before rushing out to buy it. Book 5, however, will be one I buy.
