A Draw of Kings
(The Staff and the Sword, Book 3)
By: Patrick W. Carr
What: Rodran’s death brings the series to a head. Who will be king? And who will die to save the kingdom?
Recommended to those who like: Christian fantasy, epic battles, and have read the first two books.
Warning: Please read the first two books in the series before continuing to read the rest of this review.
Who will live and who will die? That question haunts Errol. Despite all of their casts, they still have no idea who the next soteregia will be. With his newfound love for Adora, can he bear to die, leaving her alone? Why does Deas demand such sacrifice?
With Merakhi and ferral forces on Illustra’s doorstep, time is running out for their casts. The king must be chosen and the future of the kingdom secured—both militarily and spiritually. If only a remnant will remain, the heroes must somehow ensure that those left behind will be able to know Deas, even if the church fails.
This is a fitting, captivating end to an excellently written series. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has read the first two books. If you haven’t read the first book, my review for book one is here. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who likes Christian fantasy.
