A Draw of Kings- Patrick Carr

My Rating: 5 Stars

Description: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?

My Thoughts: I can not tell you how eagerly I awaited the arrival of this book. And I was far from disappointed. A Draw of Kings managed to be my favorite of the series, which is so vary rare for third books.

The world Patrick has created becomes even larger and more detailed in this novel, with characters traveling to the far reaches of the continent. Each culture is unique and has its on vastly different traditions, something that I love as a cultural anthropology major.

Even with the story split in three separate POVs that follow three different story lines, I could not put it down until I found out who would be the king and savior. I only wish that there were more to the series.

In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour, I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.

  1. It's hard to see a good book, let along a good series come to an end. I hope Patrick keeps writing... :D Who knows? Maybe he'll set more books in this world he's created, and maybe we'll get to see more of Errol and Adora, and some of the others if he does. We should ask him...
