OVERVIEW
(from Goodreads)
TWO THOUSAND YEARS the Elf Wars have raged. How long can two nations go on avenging the fallen? Both the Elven kingdoms lay ravaged and destitute. Only the Manarian Codes of War have kept the two societies from the brink of total annihilation.

General Ka-ling leads the Elves of Jui-Rae in their struggle against the widely feared Dark Elves of Jui-Sae. His adversary, General Sien, faces him on the last field of honor. But secret whisperers of both Elvish houses have other plans to abandon all quarter and usher in a new age of cold-blooded genocide…

  REVIEW
In this first book, THE LAST FIELD OF HONOR by J.L.Ficks, he has introduced many more heroes and of course, my favorite, villains.  Some are good and some are evil, as you discover as you read.
 For ages, two Elvish groups have been living with the horror of no longer being a group.  That may end for ever.Only the Manarian Codes of War are keeping both groups alive. War, past and present carries a lot of deep anger, rage, hate and revenge. The death toll of these two groups eventually comes to the point that no one knows what or why they are at odds with each other.  Is it something big and important or something trivial?
 Elves are a hardy group, out living every other race.  Their lives go on at a slower rate than humans. Here the author's two groups of Elves are the Jui-Rae of the golden forests, led by King-Kaling and Dark Elves who reign from the black forests of Jui-Sae, led by General Sien.
 The author has written a story of sadness.  We have two groups on the brink of never being again, Everyone if blaming everyone else for the deaths and the loyalty and honor being destroyed.  This war has been going on for nearly two thousand years.  Will the two groups find a truce? Will they unite forces and become one?  You can't get bored with this book.  There is action galore and never a dull moment.  The author did a wonderful job with describing the settings and the characters. He has also included several maps so you can follow along the trail. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the fantasy of Elves, kingdoms and a place to get away from everyday worries.  You can travel the Kingdoms with the Elves and become friends or enemies of some.   It's a getaway to another world, another time and new characters to unite with.  Everyone needs that getaway and Mr. Ficks has given that to us with Chronicle of coven series.   Grab a copy at your favorite book store and get started leaving the hum drum away.

I would give this book 4 SWORDS.

I was given a complimentary copy of THE FIELD OF HONOR from the author J.L.Fickes for my honest opinion.  No other compensation took place.
