The Duality of Nature (The Monster of Selkirk #1)
by C.E. Clayton
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: April 2017
DevilDog Press


Monsters come in many forms, and not everyone knows a monster when they see one. After three hundred years of monstrous, feral elves plaguing the island nation of Selkirk, everyone believes they know what a monster is. Humans have learned to live with their savage neighbors, enacting a Clearing every four years to push the elves back from their borders. The system has worked for centuries, until after one such purge, a babe was found in the forest.

As Tallis grows, she discovers she isn’t like everyone else. There is something a little different that makes people leery in her presence, and she only ever makes a handful of friends. 

But when the elves gather their forces and emerge from the forests literally hissing Tallis’s name like a battle mantra, making friends is the least of her troubles. Tallis and her companions find themselves on an unwilling journey to not only clear her name, but to stop the elves from ravaging her homeland.

Jan’s Review

The Monster of Selkirk by C.E. Clayton really surprised me. I’m not sure what I was expecting from the premise, besides wicked elves and what sounded like a historical Scottish setting, What I got is a very intricate story about yes evil elves but also about something magical that been hidden for a long time. I was let down cause we never really solve very much in this first book, there a lot of fighting and some mysterious things that happen with talis but I pretty sure the meat of this story is gonna happen over the next few books. Which works well as you get dragged into this story kicking and screaming and are left gong well that was a great start where the rest.

About the Author

Clayton was born and raised in the greater Los Angeles area, where she attended the University of Southern California for both her Bachelors and Masters, and then worked in the advertising industry for several years on accounts ranging from fast food, to cars, and video games (her personal favorite).

She does read quite a bit. More about C.E. Clayton, including her blog, book reviews, and poetry, can be found on her website. She’d also be thrilled if you followed her on
