Review by: Kari Booij on Jan. 27, 2019 :
I received this book for free through Voracious Readers Only.

Bear is an elf and a pastor of the mountain godess Huil, training his human apprentice Hunter. Nearby humans are more and more hostile towards the elves, so Bear feels he's doing a thankless job. Then a weird wintry storm starts despite it being spring, monsters turn up, children go missing, and all of it may be connected to the evil stirring deep underneath the mountain.
Bear's son Asher and his niece Medie meet up with a number of children gone missing from the area, and they have to escape the underground tunnels to save their lives.
With all this going on, Bear must rely on his friends to help him put things to rights.

Three: A Tale of the Bookseller's Children is an excellent fantasy novel with a diverse cast of characters. I loved Bear and his friends, and their interactions. The world building is amazing. The prose is amazing and pulls you right into the story.
Despite the dark plot and monsters the book was full of warmth and caring. A very fun read.
