    Was very hard to put down, once you start you had to finish.

    Picking up where she left off in The Uncrowned King, Rowena Cory

    Picking up where she left off in The Uncrowned King, Rowena Cory
    Daniells brings her King Rolen's King trilogy to a close (if not an
    altogether tidy conclusion) with The Usurper. This final instalment
    begins much as we would expect, with King Byren quietly raising a
    rebellion under the nose of his cousin, Lord Cobalt. Although largely
    consisting of young boys, maimed men, and resourceful old women, the
    fate of his arm slowly begins to turn with the emergence of the last
    living warrior monks. Together, they sneak over hidden passes, led by
    Orrie and Florin, to recruit the support of the same warlords who swore
    fealty to his father just months before. Meanwhile, Piro and Fyn find
    themselves on the other side of the world, prisoners of tyrants and
    pirates. It is here that the novel really shines, with the development
    of some intricate political manoeuvring, backstabbing, conspiracies, and
    secrets. The friendship between Piro and Isolt is an intriguing
    development, bridging the warring factions, of you will, and offering a
    glimmer of hope for a peaceful future. Fyn, meanwhile, is forced to
    confront his fears, to sacrifice his future, and to take a role in the
    conflict that his status as a monk would have once forbid. As the three
    becoming entangled with Tyro, agent of the mysterious Mage, the story
    takes an interesting and dramatic turn. Espionage and hidden agendas
    come to the forefront, with allies turning up in the most unexpected
    places, and treachery looming in ever shadow. The climactic battle of
    Rolencia that we had been expecting never comes to pass, with the story
    centring instead around a more intimate battle of wills. Palatyne and
    Byren do get their final confrontation, but within the distant halls of
    Merofynia. Even then, the outcome is not what we've come to expect, but
    there is a sort of poetic justice in how it all works out. Like I said
    earlier, it doesn't completely resolve the story line (there's still a
    traitorous cousin in charge across the sea), robbing us of possibly the
    most anticipated showdown in the series, but it does offer us hope for a
    successful resolution. Should this turn out to be the end of the
    series, I would have to admit to a little disappointment. There are too
    many questions left unanswered, too many relationships left in limbo,
    and too much violence left off the page. The story really does demand
    one more volume but, should that come to pass, it wouldn't take much to
    transform that disappointment into satisfaction.

    terrible trilogy

    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.

    It's okay

    This series is not one of the best written that I have ever read however it does keep the action going and the characters are fun. I really wish that this book had ended the series however. There were a lot of twists and turns that were interesting but could have been left out to move the plot along a little faster. There was also a lot of reminiscing about past events that dragged it down and most of it was about things that didn't get resolved in this book anyway. Still, I will probably get the next book too.
