Read full description of the books:
Trying to review these without getting spoilery is HARD. But book four is a good stopping point: some questions remain, but Cutter's original quest, to reunite the tribes and discover what happened to the High Ones, is finally within reach here.
It's interesting; this quest to figure out where the elves come from is really a quest of self-discovery on many levels. In the four books, we meet four different tribes of elves, and at each meeting, the elves are forced to confront the choices they've made for survival. The Wolfriders embraced their animal side, focused on the "Now" and on the strength of the pack. The Sun Folk retreated from human threats and kept their intellectual culture and their longevity, but this made them less able to deal with change or danger. The Gliders were an extreme version of the Sun Folk, living forever and pushing the boundaries of possibility with magic, but corrupted by their stagnation. And the Go-Backs are the extreme version of the Wolfriders: eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we may die. They're so focused on battle and the needs of the moment that they refuse to weep for their dead. Each new tribe offers the main characters new ways to be in the world, and even those who choose to remain the same are now making a conscious choice.
