The Leprechaun Wars by Wes Snowden is the story of a race of Leprechauns who have just endured a horrific war and are now faced with being exiled from their land. Gwydion is one such Leprechaun. His journey begins when his father is killed by the evil King, and he must flee to avoid the same fate. He seeks shelter in the Isle of Darkness, where he faces several challenges that shape him as a man. He comes to learn that he is stronger than he believed and that if he is going to make a difference for his people and avenge his father, he must return home to the Emerald Isle and face his enemies. Gwydion is a character you can get behind and you want him to succeed in his quest. He has lost so much in his life and yet he still carries on.
Wes Snowden has written an interesting and entertaining story with The Leprechaun Wars. An entire race faces hardship because of a cruel king. It does have reflections on certain political issues that people face today, despite being fantasy. The story moved at a good pace and I think the main character, Gwydion, was likable and well developed. The author uses some wonderfully descriptive language to set the scene and, despite the characters being fantasy creatures, they were all very relatable. I enjoyed the book and I would definitely recommend it to epic fantasy fans, as I think it would do well in that market.
