If history is just a sick joke, then who exactly is telling it and why? Could it be John Scogin, Edward IV’s court jester, whose favourite pastime was to burn people alive? Or is it Andrew Boarde, Henry VIII’s physician, who kindly wrote Scogin’s biography? This is a modern tale about two familiar subjects – love and jealousy. (source)
#14 Isle Witch (The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara #1) by Terry Brooks
When a half-drowned elf is found floating in the seas of the Blue Divide, an old mystery resurfaces. Thirty years ago, an elven prince led an expedition in search of a legendary magic said to be more powerful than any in the world. Of all those who set out on that ill-fated voyage, not one has ever returned. Until now. The rescued elf carries a map covered with mysterious symbols–and Walker Boh, the last of the Druids, has the skill to decipher them. But someone else understands the map’s significance: the Ilse Witch, a ruthless young woman who wields a magic as potent as his own. She will stop at nothing to possess the map–and the magic it leads to.(source)
