"Return of the Guardian King" by Karen Hancock

Hi all:

As a coda to last week's CSFF blog tour, I'm posting my review of Return of the Guardian-King, the fourth and final book in Karen Hancock's "Legends of the Guardian-King" series.

Return of the Guardian-King,Legends of the Guardian Kings #4

By Karen Hancock / Bethany

Here's how my review, which first appeared on Title Trakk this week, begins:

Enter again the lands of Kiriath, Chesedh, Esurh, and Draesia. Wander the endless dunes of the Great Sand Sea. Experience the mighty grandeur of the Divine Hall of Records.

If you've visited these realms before while exploring the "Legends of the Guardian-King" in the three earlier tales The Light of Eidon, The Shadow Within, and Shadow Over Kiriath, then you know the sort of epic adventure that lies in store for you in this final legend, Return of the Guardian-King. But even if you've never set foot on these shores, I am confident that Karen Hancock's layered writing and rich storytelling skills will wrap you up in these characters' lives so much that you will have no trouble following their storylines.

When last we left Abramm Kalladorne, King of Kiriath, he was king no longer ...

Hey just saw your reviews,never could say it better. I love these novels so much. I'm still sad that I will not be able to read more about Abramm, Madeleine, and Trap. Well I could always reread tham for a third time.

Hi Justin:
Glad to hear from you and totally agree about the Guardian-King series. Let's hope Karen writes another series soon!
