The powerful finale to the Christy Award-winning novels in the LEGENDS OF THE GUARDIAN-KING series

Believed dead by all but the handful of supporters who rescued him from his Mataian enemies, Abramm Kalladorne has fled his homeland to the high mountains of northern Chesedh. Traveling under a new name with a group of bitter and increasingly desperate fellow exiles, Abramm hopes to reunite with his wife in Chesedh, where he will offer his services to her father in fighting the invading armies of the Black Moon. But with every step he is hindered, delayed, and diverted from the direction he desires to go, and it soon becomes clear Eidon has other plans for him.

In the royal city of Fannath Rill, Maddie alone believes Abramm still lives. But since she has no proof, her friends, family, and public opinion press her to remarry. With its neighboring realms now under enemy control, Chesedh has become the last bastion of Eidon's Light. Desperately overmatched, it cannot survive on its own. Yet the rich, handsome eastern warlord who is openly courting Maddie has a vast fleet of galley ships that could turn the tide in Chesedh's favor....

Hancock has written another excellent book that her fans will want to rush out to get.

As with all great series, I hate to see this one come to an end. Even after some 1,600 pages. That's a testament to the exciting world Hancock has created. Without revealing the ending, I can say that readers will leave these shores satisfied that the story has been told in its entirety. But that doesn't mean we won't miss reading more of these captivating legends...

What People are saying about this

Cheryl Russell
"Return of the Guardian-King is the final book in the LEGEND OF THE GUARDIAN-KING series. Multiple Christy Award winner Karen Hancock has created a story world rich in detail and depth. Her well-written characters draw you into their world with their triumphs and struggles, failures and successes, heartbreak and joy. Much of her writing reminds me of JRR Tolkien's, especially in when it comes to creating story worlds and the characters that inhabit those alternate universes. It is Abramm's story, a man determined to follow his first love, no matter what the cost. Return of the Guardian-King holds to the same high standards set in the previous books, making the whole series keepers on my shelf."--(Cheryl Russell, crosswalk.com)

The entire series is excellent! Every single book is a page-turner! I truly enjoy the parallels between the internal and external faith struggles of Abramm because I could totally relate! Great read! Going to check out some of the author's other books.
