Twenty-one years ago, Vellandril Ballindoch betrayed the woman he loved when he returned to his people.

All he could hope was that Johden understood. She didn’t.

Now he must enter that castle again and face her. Johden, the First Knight to the King, has never forgotten how Vellandril confessed his undying love then left her. She wants nothing to do with the elf prince, now King of Tarlis-Leah. Her life is complete with her son, the son that Vellandril knows nothing about and if she has her way, never will. Vellandril needs a good knight to accompany in locating the Sword of Niraz, after someone drugged him and stole it. When he enters the castle, he is surprised to learn that Johden has never married and has risen into a higher position as a Knight. Granted, she is the best one to accompany him on this quest, but their feelings seem to get in the way, even though they try to fight them tooth and nail. When he learns the secret of his son, will they even have a future, if they are able to locate the sword before it falls into the wrong hands?

Elven Magick takes place twenty-one years after the Dragon and the Rose and is one explosive drama. Not only are the characters of Vellandril and Johden full of zest and passion, there are many secondary characters that lend great creativity to this masterpiece. The fantasy worlds leap through the pages making this one well-crafted tale with imagery that is superb. From the castles, to the elves, the magic with the sword and everything involving the story line, Ms. D’Arcy incorporates an experience that a reader doesn’t soon forget. She ties up many family matters in this second book that enthrals from the first page. Her style of writing doesn’t disappoint as she allows the reader to feel the sensations that the characters express. This book is an absolute winner!

Compelling From Beginning to End

5 out of 5 Angel Review

In Julie A. D’Arcy’s, Elven Magick,

Vellandril Ballindoch left his heart with Johden twenty two summers ago when he returned to his people to marry his betrothed. Unexpectedly, he and Johden are reunited because the Sword of Niraz has been stolen. He hopes to win back the heart he left shattered. Is it too late? Julie A. D’Arcy's knack for rendering the sorrow and grief experienced when love is sacrificed to duty is a rare and beautiful gift.

Johden has a secret that she refuses to share with Vellandril because he abandoned her. Elven Magick is a tale of redemption, discovery, and letting go.

Vellandril, Johden, and Gabriene gripped my heart and mind. I cried and rejoiced with them.

Julie A. D’Arcy weaves a saga of undying love, betrayal, forgiveness, and healing. Johden must choose between her acrimony and her love for Vellandril. Previously Vellandril sacrificed Johden for his people, he will not repeat it. Elven Magick hauntingly and evocatively renders the hostility and anguish caused by the elves refusal to accept the love between a human and an elf.
