Roberson, Jennifer -- Karavans

Odd variant of the "mysterious forest elves" trope. A small town gets uprooted when the local Dark Forest gets up and starts shifting to new territory -- I don't mean just the trees, either. (Bit of a Perimel Darkling riff, really.) The not-elves are apparently tied into all of that, but they remain thoroughly obscure about how and why. I don't mind the idea of a book-length exercise in not explaining what's going on, but to do it when one of the not-elves is a primary viewpoint character turns an exercise into a gimmick. I'd like to know what's going on, but not if the author is going to be like that about it.
