A neat little book tying in to the Elder Scrolls universe, a series of fantasy video games. This short work provides (in broad sweeps) an outline of the history of Tamriel, the world where the games take place. It is clear and concise, with lyrical language when necessary and is well-presented with good illustrations. It only recounts up to the year before the events of Oblivion, the fourth game of the series, but is nevertheless a nice little curio for fans of the series, if you can get your hands on it.
