The tree-man is an Elidhu. What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you? Login Hem’s story, what a great character. It is pages long including maps, notes, and appendices. Intriguingly, I think this was my favorite of the three so far. While spying Zelika spots her brother and gives herself away.
