A Draw Of Kings by Patrick W. Carr is a truly wonderful ending to a most excellent series!
I loved all three books. The characters are interesting, especially the main character Errol. I really liked him and was hoping all the way through that things would turn out well for him.
He met some really interesting people in his travels too and went from being a drunk to a well respected leader.
The series has some romance in it too. And adventure. There are monsters to kill and assassins to escape. And a world to save.
If you haven’t read the first two books yet then you should. This is one of the best series I have read in the last few years.
About the book:
Their journey to Merakh should have made Errol and his companions heroes of the realm. Instead, much is changed on their return. In the wake of the king’s death, Duke Weir is ruling the country–and his intentions are to marry Adora to bring an heir.
With Errol and the others imprisoned and the identity of the rightful heir to the throne still hidden in secrecy, Illustra is on the verge of civil war–and at growing risk from the armies of Merakh and Morgol.
A dangerous mission to free Errol succeeds, but the dangers facing the kingdom are mounting with every passing moment. The barrier has fallen, ferals are swarming toward the land, and their enemies draw near. Will the revelation of Illustra’s next true king come in time or will all be lost?
About the Author:
Patrick Carr was born on an Air Force base in West Germany at the height of the cold war. He has been told this was not his fault. As an Air Force brat, he experienced a change in locale every three years until his father retired to Tennessee. Patrick saw more of the world on his own through a varied and somewhat eclectic education and work history. He graduated from Georgia Tech in 1984 and has worked as a draftsman at a nuclear plant, did design work for the Air Force, worked for a printing company, and consulted as an engineer. Patrick’s day gig for the last five years has been teaching high school math in Nashville, TN. He currently makes his home in Nashville with his wonderfully patient wife, Mary, and four sons he thinks are amazing: Patrick, Connor, Daniel, and Ethan. Sometime in the future he would like to be a jazz pianist. Patrick thinks writing about himself in the third person is kind of weird.
This review is part of a blog tour hosted by Chapter by Chapter. I received a free eBook copy to review but I bought paperback copies of all three books myself (yes I liked it THAT much).
