Overview

In this sequel to "The Misadventures of Ka-Ron the Knight" an evil force is growing in the "Nown" world, causing peaceful nations and kings to wage war on one another for no apparent reason. Returning home after her adventure "Karen" has accepted her new identity, having been changed into a woman, marrying her faithful squire Jatel. In her absence, Idoshia has become a fallen and conquered nation controlled by the Xows! The Royal Family are prisoners in their own castle, and a political opportunist named Hector has seized power. In the elfin lands, an ancient evil has been released causing all free-loving people to take up arms against their beloved king.. Building up a great alliance, Karen of Teal, former Errant-Knight to the kingdom of Idoshia, becomes her people's one and only hope. Battling Elves, vampires, an escape from prison, sea creatures, and an army of the dead, no horror is more unimaginable than what would later be called "THE LURKER WAR!"

    With The Lurker War, Donald picks up where he left off in The Mi

    With The Lurker War, Donald picks up where he left off in The Misadventures of Ka-Ron the Knight, firmly entrenched in the realm of traditional fantasy. While there are still some erotic moments here, they are very much secondary to the plot, making it a more accessible story to squeamish readers, while still reminding the more daring readers of what they enjoyed about the first volume. Karen (formerly Ka-Ron) is comfortably settled into her femininity, pregnant for the second time in her new life, and on her way to becoming not a Knight, but a Queen . . . while her husband, Jatel, struggles to accept his new role as husband and King, instead of Squire.

    This is very much a book about a world at war - a pointless, bloody, hopeless war in which friends and allies have been turned against one another by the Lurker parasites (think malevolent Tribbles with teeth!). Karen and her crew must survive capture by the enemy, free themselves from the world's most inescapable prison, make peace with ancient foes, find a way to reunite with their past allies, and (quite literally) save the world. What really sets this book apart from the first, though, is the deeper exploration of the mythology and history of the Nown world . . . complete with a cliffhanger encounter that promises big things for the next instalment.

    More frantically paced than the first instalment, this is a book that almost demands to be consumed in a single reading. It's a hard story to put down, and one that ably delivers on the promise and potential of the first volume. All the character we came to know and love there are back - including a few welcome surprises - and the new characters, particularly on the villainous side, make for some great additions. There are still some interesting explorations of gender here, of course, even if they're not the focus on the book. I loved how the Dwarven females were exposed/reintroduced into society, and there were some interesting twists/reversals of gender roles and expectations that kept things fresh and interesting.

    If you were left hanging after the end of The Misadventures of Ka-Ron the Knight, then you won't be disappointed with The Lurker War . . . and if you haven't read either, then all I can say is "what are you waiting for?"

    The (Mis)Adventure continues!

    Donald Kirch hits all the right notes again in this continuation of Ka-Ron the Knight’s adventure. An evil from eons past has been unleashed and is bent on war and destruction, and it’s up to the bravery of our intrepid heroes to save the day. Written crisply and with ever-building tension, Ka-Ron (who now is wholly Karen), Jatel, and the friends they picked up along the way in the first book are determined to unearth the madness that has beset once peaceful lands and people. “The Lurker War” is emotion-involving, nail-biting suspense and action at its best, with plenty of sultry interludes to satisfy anyone who loves adventure, lusty diversions, and battles against evil for all that is good. Characters we grew to love in the “The Misadventures…” are here. We fear for and cheer each on as they face both shared and separate challenges. Loved this second installment of Ka-Ron/Karen’s tale and think you will, as well!

    A decent story, marred by a plot inconsistency. An issue was revealed in the first quarter of the book, with one reaction by the involved characters, then revealed again later in the book, with a different reaction by one of the same involved characters.
