“Their journey to Merakh should have made Errol and his companions heroes of the realm. Instead, they’ve been branded enemies of the kingdom.
In the wake of the king’s death, Duke Weir is ruling the country–and he intends to marry Adora to bring forth an heir from the royal line. 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 threatened bu hostile forces gathering on every side.
A dangerous mission to free Errol is attempted, but the dangers facing the kingdom mount with every passing moment. The barrier has fallen, ferrals are swarming toward the land, and their enemies draw even closer. Will the discovery of the true heir turn back the tide of Illustra’s destruction?”
A Draw of Kings is book 3 in The Staff and The Sword series and I knew this when I requested the book, because normally you can pick up in the middle of a series and still thoroughly enjoy the book, but I really haven’t understood A Draw of Kings. It’s not because it is badly written, its because I am picking up in the middle of the series. Because of this, I am postponing reading A Draw of Kings until I get the first 2 books in the series, so that I won’t know what happens when I do read it. But, from what I have read, A Draw of Kings is a pretty good book and I look forward to getting the series.
However, if you are looking at this book as a gift, I will say that this book contains quite a bit of abuse in the first few chapters that I have read, as well as one of the main characters having to kill an enemy for protection. So, if this bothers some, then I would not recommend it.
