A King's Task [NOOK Book]

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.

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 SF must read!

    A.V. Wedhorn has me hooked. This book picked up where The King's Quest left off. The author does a great job of keeping the action going. He shows more insight into the different characters backgrounds. There are multiple twist that will keep you turning the pages to see what will happen next. The ending will have you impatient for the next book to come out.
    The only negative I see is the lack of editing resulting in grammatical errors and split words. Over all a great read.
