In the Company of Elves

What Readers Are Saying:

Many Books

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this short story. Guttormsson has created intriguing and likeable characters, and writes with a voice that welcomes and engages the reader. While reading I feel fully immersed in their world and am excited for the next instalment to see what happens to these characters and the land they inhabit.

Many Books

This sensitive collection of short verse poetry brings you back in time to days of new love, rejection, happiness, and sadness. With each poem, memories of the past come flooding back with various thoughts and feelings. I recommend this book and cannot wait for more from this author.
