    Amazing Read

    This book is a fun, intriguing that any teen or adult reader would enjoy. This is a great author and I am definitely going to be reading other books by the author. Great book club novel!

    The Uncrowned King is the second instalment of the King Rolen's

    The Uncrowned King is the second instalment of the King Rolen's Kin
    trilogy, traditionally the weakest part of any trilogy. With the story
    already established, and the conclusion yet to come, the middle volume
    could be forgiven if it didn't really move the story forward.
    Fortunately, there's enough going on here to make it just as compelling
    a read as the first. What's more, since we already have an attachment to
    the characters, their perils and triumphs have more of an emotional
    impact. There were at least two occasions where excitement nearly had me
    jumping out of my seat, and one notable occasion where I found myself
    seething over a betrayal. At its essence, this is the story of a ruling
    family being torn apart, forced to struggle their way back from exile
    and ruin to rescue their kingdom. Byren, by far, faces the toughest
    challenge, despite the fact that his journey seems like it should be so
    easy. Betrayed, wounded, and touched by the power of Affinity, he is a
    man we watch losing all hope, yet still struggling forward. Fyn, as I
    suspected (indeed, hoped) comes into his own as a hero who can stand
    proudly beside his brother. His journey is the most wondrous of the
    three, full of surprises for both him and the reader. As for Piro, even
    though she's largely left to hide, flee, and disguise herself against
    her enemies, she is clearly set up to have a large role to play in the
    final volume. We do get to see much more of the villains in this
    instalment, with Cobalt revealing his true colours, but I will say no
    more on that subject for fear of spoilers. This volume doesn't add much
    to the world-building begun in The King's Bastard, but it does smartly
    develop what's already been established. We learn more about the
    Affinity-touched beasts roaming the countryside, and get a deeper
    glimpse into the mythology and religious structure of the kingdom. We
    don't actually get to see Merofynia (not yet, at least), but we do see
    more of its dark side - one full of slavery, renegade power workers, and
    assassins. Fast-paced, just as engaging, and (much to my relief) absent
    the convenient delays and lapses of memory that bothered me about the
    first volume, this is another good, solid, page-turning read that's sure
    to satisfy fans of traditional fantasy. Bring on The Usurper and let's
    see how (or, perhaps, if) justice can prevail!

    really bad

    This is simply one of the worst fantasies I have read in 20 years. I bought them as a trilogy while I went on a long trip. It was all I had to read. I never would have bought the second two if I read the first one first. They are all awful. The characters are thin, weak, and pathetic. The plot line is worse. Everyone feels guilty for everything, the jumps from place to place are impossible, and after three volumes, there is NO satisfying ending. What a complete waste.
