Overview

Pain wracked the knight champion as he slowly pulled his body out of the icy water and onto the frozen shore. Blood ran off his back forming a murky pool under him. Gasping, he coughed up a bloody froth from his burning lungs. Bertravis Liolbane wasn’t sure why he was still alive. Lifting his face out of the mud, he stared forlornly back in the direction he had came. I should have stayed, he thought miserably. My king and queen died and yet I live. He saw no movement in the smoldering remains. He must have been mistaken. With a heavy heart Bertravis dismissed his surge of hope. For a moment, he thought he had seen a figure clutching something staggering out of the flames.

A King's Task, Volume 2 of The Kingdom Chronicles, delves deep into the minds and motivations of a treacherous race, a power hungry Regent, his pet wizard, and their revenge-seeking knight champion, as they plot through deceit and deception to take control of the Fourteen Kingdoms. Join Damien Daverge, his best friend, Logan Longshadow, Kendle Stonebreaker, son of the powerful Hill Dwarves, Alyssa, the magical Cleric of Dar, Cassica Essen, battlemage supreme, and others as they battle to put the rightful heir of the Fourteen Kingdoms on the Throne and rise above the worst, do what is necessary and right while pledging their lives no matter the cost.. Strong characters in this story present a positive message of responsibility and commitment to principle and honor. A King’s Task is the fantastic continuation of the story that began in A King’s Quest. This is an excellent adventure that stays in the true vein of the genre and teaches the reader some important lessons about life. Stay tuned for A King's Court, Vol. 3 of the Kingdom Chronicles as the epic story continues.
