"The Rain had been falling for days. The mud came up to his ankles. If it didn't stop raining, even the frogs would drown..."
The Last Elf is about a young Elf's journey of discovery. Combining elements of fantasy, fable and humour, this charming novel about a young Elf on a journey of discovery deals with wickedness, redemption and romantic destiny - as well as a very crotchety dragon.
In a world shrouded in darkness and continually lashed by rain, a na ve young elf discovers he is part of a powerful prophecy: when the dragon and the last elf break the circle, the past and the future will meet, and the sun of a new summer will shine in the sky.
On his journey, Yorsh will discover that humans are mysterious and flawed creatures, dogs are truly faithful, and dragons are not always easy to get along with!
Heart-warming and truly original, this wonderful novel brings to readers an utterly charming character whose innocence and style are irresistible.
Just like the character Dobby from the Harry Potter books, Yorsh will enchant readers of all ages with his openhearted honesty.
