The strong Earth energies that support the Clan Elves of the Bitterroot have gone awry for unknown reasons, and the powerful forces at work have not gone unnoticed by the outside world. When a paranormal investigator looking for a story to save her career is told a fantastic tale by the juvenile and disobedient elf prince Elliun, his young albino elf bodyguard Max must try to fix the mistake. Can Max get  humans, mages, and elves working together in time to save the land before the energies spin out of control? Or is this the end of the elven world in the Bitterroot Mountains?

The Clan Elves of the Bitterroot urban fantasy series includes: THE ELF CHILD (#2), THE ELF GUARDIAN (#4), THE ELF MAGE (#3), and THE ELF QUEEN (#1).

“In THE ELF GUARDIAN (Book 4 of the Clan Elves of the Bitterroot series by Lyndi Alexander), the maturation of the continuing characters is evident, especially in little Max, the smallish (even for an elf) albino. He grows, not in physical size, but in courage, wisdom, and heart, as he strives bravely to be a true guardian to the young prince Elliun, who though only three in human years is already the size of a human seven or eight-year-old and taller than Max. Elliun leads Max a merry chase, disappearing constantly to explore forbidden areas, when he knows he shouldn’t. Enter Chiara DeLuna, Paranormal Expert and media star of her own struggling cable TV show. She needs a hit to keep her show, and is willing to do anything to get it, even if it puts the lives of the elves in terrible danger. She is a sensitive, and knows that there is a vortex of energy in Montana, but doesn’t know that the elves need the vortex as a source of strength and life, and that they need it to function as it should as they gather each year to recharge. Chiara and the elves all sense that something is amiss with the vortex, but seek to learn the cause for very different reasons. Read to find out what happens when the paths of Chiara and the elves cross as they all approach the vortex. This book is really exciting, the best of the series so far! I highly recommend it!” ~ reviewed by Dr. Jane Nixon White [FIVE STARS]
