Book Review The Monster of Selkirk Book 1: The Duality of Nature

Title: The Monster of Selkirk Book 1: The Duality of Nature
Author: C.E. Clayton
Genre: Fantasy
The Monster of Selkirk Books series available now!

Monsters come in many forms, and not everyone knows a monster when they see one. After three hundred years of monstrous, feral elves plaguing the island nation of Selkirk, everyone believes they know what a monster is. Humans have learned to live with their savage neighbors, enacting a Clearing every four years to push the elves back from their borders. The system has worked for centuries, until after one such purge, a babe was found in the forest.
As Tallis grows, she discovers she isn’t like everyone else. There is something a little different that makes people leery in her presence, and she only ever makes a handful of friends. But when the elves gather their forces and emerge from the forests literally hissing Tallis’s name like a battle mantra, making friends is the least of her troubles. Tallis and her companions find themselves on an unwilling journey to not only clear her name, but to stop the elves from ravaging her homeland.

Review: I loved this book!!!! It's one of my favorite books of this year, hands down, which is why it's incredibly hard to review this, because I don't want to give the plot away. The main character is named Tallis, and there's something very special about her. She kicks butts like there's no tomorrow. The elves not being the standard, typical good guys for once is a nice change. Like the title, "The Duality of Nature", there's a lot of duality, a lot of good and bad, a lot of grey in the book, and I love that! Fantasy fans really NEED to read this book. Like, now. I mean it!
