The Assassination of Brangwain Spurge by M.T. Anderson, Eugene Yelchin, Eugene Yelchin (Illustrator)The Assassination of Brangwain Spurge is a most fantastical Elf and Goblin tale. Both historians in their own right, but the Elf is sent unknowingly to spy on and destroy the Goblin Ruler while the Goblin acts as the host. And neither is aware of what is about to happen. M.T Anderson has done it again!!
