So, I began reading this series years ago and put it down, and now I've been thinking about it and want to see how it ended.
It was a basic Epic. Group needed to destroy evil somewhere off in the world. Must have read it in the early 2000s. The most I remember is based off of the characters.
There was a species of elven hybrids; they were winged, the product of a forced union by an evil magical entity. The elves hated them. Another species (I think they were terromancers), created a mountain kingdom/realm to protect them.
One of the main characters was a wizard prodigy; he'd been babied his entire life and while magically advanced, had a lot of growing up to do.
There was a general who, in order to gain advantage on the battlefield, bonded to (I think) an earth god through a shamanistic pain ceremony.
Another was an unlanded (I think) elf (his kingdom had been destroyed) he was a mercenary.
They were all fighting to get the wizard/child to the north to kill/defeat this great evil who lived in a stronghold on the other side of the world.
Thanks all! And sorry it's so vague. I've been searching the internet for most of the day. Nothing's turned up.
