The King's Scroll- Jaye Knight


About the Book

Following the harrowing events that brought them to Landale Forest, Jace and Kyrin have settled comfortably into their new lives and the mission of protecting those under the emperor’s persecution. The fast approach of winter brings with it the anticipation of a quiet few months ahead. That is until the arrival of four mysterious, dragon-riding cretes who seek aid in a mission of great importance—not only to their own people, but to all followers of Elôm.

Hidden in the vast mining valley north of Valcré, a faithful crete has spent years sharing his knowledge with the destitute miners and their families and is known to possess what may be Arcacia’s last surviving copies of the King’s Scrolls—the Word of Elôm. Joining the cretes, those in Landale must find the crete teacher and bring him to safety, but it is a race against time. Should Daican’s men find him first, execution and the destruction of the Scrolls is certain.

When disaster strikes, all seems lost. Could Elôm have a plan even in the enemy’s triumph?

Available on Amazon!

My Thoughts
I am really enjoying the Ilyon Chronicles. Kyrin and Jace are great characters and the Knight has done an awesome job of building their back stories. While the threat of death and execution has always been looming, in The King's Scrolls it shows up on stage, bringing home just what these characters are willing to sacrifice for their faith. As I am sure Knight meant for it to do, the story has made me question what I would do if it were my family's safety at stake.

One thing that I am not a fan of is the number of small Point of View characters there were. I have always preferred there three or four at most, and tend to be annoyed when there are characters with only one scene from their POV. I feel like some of these could have been cut out and nothing would have been lost from the story.

I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book (There is a next book? Right!?).

I received and Advanced Reader Copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
