The subject of soul names and recognition is an interesting concept. I like the way that the Pinis show it both ways: when it is a mutual, loving relationship, but also when it is the worst possible thing that could happen. The joining of the tribes through these relationships and the offspring that connect them are fascinating to read about. The atrocity of using the elf's soul name against her shows the extent that Winnowill is willing to go to obtain and keep power. Another great adventure!

These are a series of graphic novels that I first read in my tweens and hold a special place in my childhood reading. I have since come back to them and re-read them several times, and for me, they continue to stand to the test of time. This series changed drastically in plot and voice after the eighth volume, and increasingly became more and more of the saccharine sweet fantasy fluff that I can't bear to read. The first eight volumes are literary treasures that I continue to cherish.

I have a lot of books in my library that I read before I started my goodreads account. this is one of them. When I have time I will come back and write a thorough review. But for now, I've given it a rating based upon my memory and feelings about the book.
Siege at Blue Mountain lacks the scope of the original quest, and takes the story in a darker direction.

I don't remember as much of this story as I did the original, so it was almost like a completely new reading experience.

The memories are all too fresh -- too humiliating for the proud stargazer to recount. Instead, he breathes a name...
reprints/collects the first half of the 8-issue miniseries Siege at Blue Mountan.

Winnowill is such a bitch, in the Shannen Doherty tradition. I bet she doesn't even have a soul name.
Winnowill is the evil seductress to end all evil seductresses. Who knew that gills were so hot?
All of Wendy and Richard Pini's ElfQuest books are amazingly good. ALL OF THEM.
Good to read with oatmeal. Read it only with oatmeal.
Still going strong, still loving it!
