Into the Dark Lands (The Sundered, Book 1)

Into the Dark Lands - Michelle Sagara West I was looking for some non-medieval fantasy by someone I hadn't yet read and stumbled upon this. I was very impressed; the writing is good and the story is great. West's take on the eternal struggle between good and evil is innovative and difficult to put down.

If you enjoy fantasy, give this a try -- especially if most of the fantasy you tend to read contains elves and stand-ins for medieval England. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
