Today it’s my turn to be on the blog tour for The Elf King by Lorraine Hellier. It’s a children’s book that follows a family of elves. Before we get onto my review, here is a little bit more about the book.
Bay Leaf is the new Elf King and must take his Oath of Allegiance. His sister, Sweet Pea, demonstrates her love and support on a perilous journey to the Mountain Shrine.
An enchanted book offers advice and guidance from their ancestors and warns Sweet Pea to take care of her brother. Will her interference resolve Bay Leaf’s heartache?

A book for young readers, The Elf King tells us the story of Sweet Pea and her brother Bay Leaf on a journey to the Mountain Shrine where Bay Leaf has to take the Oath of Allegiance’ to the ‘Moon Lake Elves’. The journey is fraught with danger and both Sweet Pea and Bay Leaf must help each other on the way.
I suppose the main points of the story include supporting your own family and sticking together no matter what. Family life can be hard but always having each other’s back is very important in life. There is no one like your family.
I love how the author shows us how magic and fantasy can be a part of the characters but not affect family loyalty. It’s a well written book that will appeal to the pre-teen ages. It’s not your average fantasy book and you will be in for a treat!
A well deserved 4 out of 5 stars.
