Back Cover: With the King Near Death, Will the Kingdom Fall?
When Sarin Valon, the corrupt and dangerous church leader, flees the city of Erinon and the kingdom, Errol Stone believes his troubles have at last ended. But he and his friends still have dangerous enemies working against them in secrets and whispers.
In a bid to keep them from the axe, Archbenefice Canon sends Martin and Luis to Errol's home village, Callowford, to discover what makes him so important to the kingdom, and in that journey they discover amazing new secrets about the workings of Aurae.
Back in Erinon, Errol is unjustly accused of consorting with spirits. Convicted, his punishment is a journey to the enemy kingdom of Merakh, where he must find Sarin Valon and kill him. To enforce their sentence, the church leaders place Errol under a compulsion--he must complete his task, or die trying.
My Review: Once again Errol is forced into the undesirable position of hero as he is put under yet another compulsion. He must succeed in his quest, or die in the effort - and it looks like dying might be the only option open to him. The Hero's Lot follows on the heals of the first book in the series A Cast of Stones and I am grateful I read that book or I would be completely lost as to what I going on in this novel. I am intrigued by the tale, and am interested in reading the next book in the series.
My Recommendation: I recommend this book to readers of fantasy, but highly suggest you read the first book in the series (A Cast of Stones) first.
