Veteran fantasy writer Elliott returns to the world of her Crossroads trilogy with a sophisticated and challenging tale that launches the follow-up Black Wolves trilogy. The Hundred is a land once ruled by just that many councils and village conclaves. Then King Anjihosh dispatched the demons, rebels, and other unsavory elements threatening the peace and brought order to the kingdom. His elite fighting force, the Black Wolves, led by Captain Kellas, is tasked with keeping the peace and ferreting out possible threats to the throne. Elliott throws a curve to readers as the second part of the novel jumps 44 years forward with the Black Wolves disbanded and Anjihosh's grandson, King Jehosh, facing multiple threats to his rule. The aged Kellas is recalled to aid the king, but it may be too late. Elliott has a gift for creating a landscape that is at once sweeping and intimate, with minor characters often as memorable as the major players. Strong female characters and a distinctive Asian setting add to this twisty and intricate story and will appeal to readers who enjoy intelligent high fantasy. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
