Stars Descend Blog Tour: Guest Post on Space Elves

I'm excited to share with you a guest post about space elves from author Kara Jaynes! First, here's what the book's about.

About the Book
The elves have come down from the sky in their ships, their countenances full of light and their bodies, power. But they rule over us humans with iron fists, and without mercy.

Vampires stalk the streets, lurking in shadows and the cover of darkness. Their lust for blood is never sated, and the nights are filled with the screams of their victims.

I’m just a street rat, a trash picker. I didn’t expect him to choose me. The Prince of Elves could have anyone, so why me?

Even as my heart sings at the elf’s close proximity, I still love the boy who left me, disappearing into the city’s corrupt underworld. I don’t even know if he’s still alive.

Stars reign. Rebellion brews. And with my already uncertain future disintegrating into chaos, I don’t know who to turn to, or who to trust.

Guest Post on Space Elves

The elves in Stars Descend aren’t the sort that lives in the forests or underground. These elves are from space. They look the way one might expect. They’re generally tall and beautiful, with striking features and piercing eyes. They’re physically powerful and wield magic. They are also similar to aliens you might read about in a sci-fi novel since they come from another world, but rather than destroying humanity and stripping Earth of its resources; the elves believe their calling is to nurture, heal and protect planets that are struggling to survive. They’re hardcore environmentalists.

The king of the elves has several sons, and as they’ve come of age and earned the privilege to serve, has sent them to various planets that have needed their aid.

Eldaren is the youngest of the king’s sons and has been assigned to serve on our planet Earth, in a dystopian future where humans have all but ruined civilization through war amongst each other and depleting their resources. By the time the elves arrive, humans are in dire straights.

Eldaren hopes to change things for the better, not only to help the humans, but to prove himself to his king, and his people. But he discovers that humans are remarkably averse and resistant to change, and things don’t work out the way he expects.

I chose elves to be the race to nurture Earth for a couple of reasons. One, because I knew from the moment the story idea sprang to my mind that elves would be involved in the story, but also because traditionally—in folklore and other stories—their sort and fae—and one could argue that elves are fae—have always seemed a little more in tune with nature, than other mythical creatures or humans.

  1. I love this!!! I thought it a nice "twist" concerning the evils and being very much in tune with nature. Also the pressure riding on Eldaren shoulders makes me want to give him a bear hug. Thank you so much for sharing, Ashley!

    1. I love that twist too. It's so interesting. And I agree with you about Eldaren. He totally needs a hug! :D

  2. I love the idea of elves being from another planet.
