Review: The Draw of Kings by Patrick W. Carr

https://amzn.to/2ngYGuOAbout the book:
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 thoughts:

A Draw of Kings is the final book in The Staff and the Sword trilogy. I'm very glad to have finished this series. Even though I did enjoy the first two books quite a bit, I'll admit that I don't think fantasy is one of my favorite genres anymore (or at least not high fantasy, which is how I think this would be classified? Not sure.). I know that a lot of people have LOVED this series; so, if you are into high fantasy, I think you might like it.

The characters were great and, for what it was, the writing was also good. I just had a hard time following everything and I think that was because of all the names and things that were necessary for the world of the story.

I will say that the ending was intense. I didn't love the way it turned out, but I did like that it was unexpected.

All in all, A Draw of Kings was a fine read, but not for me. If you like high fantasy, then I think you will probably enjoy this trilogy.
