Overview

A Hero's Throne by Ross Lawhead

“Knights of Ennor—the time has come to awake. Rise up to fulfill your secret oath and sacred duty.”

The Ancient Earth Trilogy, #2

Deep beneath the streets of England lies another realm . . . one few in our modern world know exists. Daniel and Freya, however, know it all too well. Eight years ago, these friends first journeyed through portals into the hidden land of Niðergeard—discovering a city filled with stones, secrets, and sleeping knights that serve to protect the world they call home.

But Niðergeard has fallen to dark forces, overrun by its enemies. Gates are being opened between the worlds that should have been kept closed. The battle lines for the war at the end of time have been drawn, and opposing forces are starting to gather.

Having served for centuries as the first and last outpost at the borders to other worlds, Niðergeard must be reclaimed and the mystery of its fall discovered. Daniel and Freya, along with an ancient knight and a Scottish police officer, must return to the legendary city, rally the surviving citizens, and awaken the sleeping knights—knights who are being killed, one by one, as they sleep.

But time is running out faster than they know.

Ross Lawhead in his new book "A Hero's Throne" Book Two in The Ancient Earth Trilogy published by Thomas Nelson returns us to the world of Nidergeard and Daniel Tully and Freya Reynolds. From the back cover: "Knights of Ennor--the time has come to awake. Rise up to fulfill your secret oath and sacred duty." Deep beneath the streets of England lies another realm . . . one few in our modern world know exists. Daniel and Freya, however, know it all too well. Eight years ago, these friends first journeyed through portals into the hidden land of Niðergeard--discovering a city filled with stones, secrets, and sleeping knights that serve to protect the world they call home. But Niðergeard has fallen to dark forces, overrun by its enemies. Gates are being opened between the worlds that should have been kept closed. The battle lines for the war at the end of time have been drawn, and opposing forces are starting to gather. Having served for centuries as the first and last outpost at the borders to other worlds, Niðergeard must be reclaimed and the mystery of its fall discovered. Daniel and Freya, along with an ancient knight and a Scottish police officer, must return to the legendary city, rally the surviving citizens, and awaken the sleeping knights--knights who are being killed, one by one, as they sleep. But time is running out faster than they know. There is a land beneath Great Britain where visitors do not go. Both Daniel and Freya are needed to stop the mythical world from taking over ours. What has happened to Nidergeard and can these two fulfill their individual quests and wake the sleeping knights? I think Ross Lawhead has done a great job of taking lots of old British mythology and weaving all of them into his novel. There is much to learn about Nidergeard and the sleeping knights who are there to protect it when the need arises. "A Hero's Throne" is a fantasy adventure where the battle for good and evil has never been so important. The freedom of our world is as stake and we cannot afford to lose. This is a page turning thriller as the war of light against darkness rages. In these pages there is much to learn of mythology and, I think, Mr. Lawhead has taught us well. I am looking forward to seeing how all these plot threads are woven together in book three.
