An Elf for All Centuries by S.A. Garcia

At more than 400 pages, I almost skipped this one due to the involvement it would take me to read it… and it would have been a big mistake. Even if fantasy is not exactly my cup of tea, I plenty enjoyed this funny romp tale: Fabion is a XXXIX century elf who makes his living as model; he is uber-hot and in that century elves are a rare breed looked upon by filthy human as odd creatures with an alluring appeal. Modern time is a polluted world, in which evil elves manages all the money, and poor human are living in filth and poverty; everything that is natural is dying and artificial things are substituting the living one. The legends of the elves ancestors are like fairy tales: people still narrate about the powerful Henda, the mighty king, so beautiful and kind, who unfortunately faded away and with him also all the beauty of the world.

Then suddenly Fabion is whisked away in the XVIII century: apparently Fabion is the reincarnation of Henda’s husband, a beautiful elf who died an horrible death, and a crashed Henda decided to follow him in the alterlife: he is now a sleeping beauty waiting for his prince’s kiss. To Fabion the XVIII century is not as bad as you can imagine: he is served and revered like a prince, exactly as he is in his own time. Plus Henda is an hunk of a king, and Fabion has no qualms in being his house-husband… no one can pretend from him to be a warrior like the previous Fabion, and neither an housekeeping; the only think in which Fabion excels is being pretty and sexy, and of course he is able to satisfy Henda’s every desire in the bedroom.

The tale is really funny, light and cute. It’s not really complex, but sincerely nothing is in surplus in the story and all more than 400 pages are right where they were. And so, if you want to try it, buck up and enjoy the long ride, there will be plenty of smiles.
