Patrick W. Carr is back with the second book in the Staff and the Sword series, The Hero’s Lot. The story of Errol Stone continues as Errol is wrongly accused of a crime and sent on a journey to an enemy kingdom to find Sarin Valon, the corrupt church leader. Errol gathers around him an unlikely crew of people to aid and guide him along the way.
In the meantime, Martin and Luis are sent back to Errol’s home village to try to learn more about Errol. Once the truth is learned, Martin knows he must find Errol and share this knowledge with him. Along their journey, Martin and Luis encounter the followers and the power of Aurae and learn to believe in things they did not count as truth before.
The Hero’s Lot is a great follow up to The Cast of Stones. Of course, now I cannot wait for the third book to come out to see what sort of adventure Errol is sent on next. This book was full of action, adventure and secrets that kept me quickly turning the pages, eager to know what happens next. If you enjoy fantasy, you will enjoy this installment in The Staff and the Sword series.
I was given a copy of this book to review from Bethany House Publishers. I was not required to submit a positive review.
