Back Cover: Dark Forces Have Gathered and the Final Battle for Illustra Has Begun
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 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 by 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 ever closer. Will the discovery of the true heir turn back the tide of Illustra's destruction?
My Review: Once again, Errol Stone and his friends are on a dangerous journey, but this time the fate of the entire kingdom rests in their success. A usurper has taken the throne, and everything may be lost. The spring is coming and with it the war that could destroy them all. This novel will suck you in and keep you turning pages long into the night. I stayed up until two in the morning, because I could not put the book down until I found out what happened. The pages are full of epic battle scenes and danger at every turn. You don't want to miss the exciting conclusion to this fun fantasy series.
My Recommendation: I recommend this book to readers of the Staff & the Sword series and lovers of fantasy. I would suggest reading the first two books first, so this one makes sense.
