In kingdoms at war, alliances are made to be broken in a thrilling novel of magic and dark conspiracies by the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Warrior’s Ransom.
Ransom Barton and his wife, Claire de Murrow, have arrived in Legault to reclaim the title that was Claire’s birthright. Claire intends to rebuild a war-ravaged palace to its former glory and to teach Ransom about the magical history of their new home. But when Ransom is summoned to return to King Benedict, his loyalty to Claire is tested. Fealty prevails, however questionable the king’s motives.
The ambitious Benedict, who controls his late father’s dominion, must prove his might. The warriors of the East Kingdoms have disrupted the trade routes, weakening every kingdom in their path. Benedict’s plan is to fend off a coming war through strategic alliances. But it’s Ransom’s post to keep the king’s allies—as well as his poisonous enemies—in line, even as Benedict’s defense may be inviting further chaos.
As the king’s power grows and Ransom’s rise in the council is secured, a shadowy conspiracy threatens to destroy everything Ransom has worked to build. Now torn between allegiance to the woman he loves and duty to king and country, which will Ransom choose?
1st, Jeff Wheeler is one of my favorite authors and I’ve read almost everything he’s written. That being the case, I was so disappointed in this book. Much is just running from one place to the next, dealing with betrayals, locality and confusing shifting of who’s in charge and who is fighting who.I enjoy the magic, the backstories and the mystical. To me, this book lacked all of the depth of other books.I will finish the series, but if anything like this book, will skip to the meat of the story.
Jeff wheeler doesn’t disappoint again!My vocabulary continues to improve as I use the wordchecking ability ofKindle.Can’t wait for the next book.
I just love this series. One of your best Jeff.The characters, story and relationships……….awesome!!Thank You! Don’t want to wish time away, but January is too far away.Hurry!!
I’ve read the first series and I still like this one better. Ransom is an admirable character- chivalrous and loyal – everything you expect a knight to be. The love story is amazing and still strong in this book. The ending has a twist and it makes me look forward to the next book.
This installment brings us back to the early days of kingfountain. Ransom is yet again torn between the greed of man, ever changing loyalties, and the will of the fountain.
