Review - Lost and Found by Blaine D. Arden

My rating:

A young tree elf has gone missing after leaving the camp of a hunting party, so truth-seeker Kelnaht is called in to lead the search along with his apprentice Brem. Clues are scarce, and it takes several days, but eventually they find the boy in a place apparently meant to implicate the forester Taruif, with whom Kelnaht has been having an illicit affair. It's easy enough to clear the forester but harder to track down the real culprit.

My rating:

Review - The Forester by Blaine D. Arden

My rating:

A beloved elf is found strangled in the forest, and it's truth-seeker Kelnaht's job to find out who is responsible. Fingers are already pointing at the shunned forester, Taruif, but there's no evidence of the elf's guilt and Kelnaht doesn't want to believe it. He's been harboring feelings towards the forester for a while, but that's not something he can admit to anyone, since even talking to the elf is a crime.
