A Draw of Kings, the final installment in The Staff and the Sword series by Patrick W. Carr brings the world of Illustra to the final battle for its life. Will the dark forces of the surrounding worlds prevail, or will light and hope of a new king and saviour overcome?
Errol and his companions return from their last journey to find the king is dead and the kingdom is in chaos. The only thing that will bring order is for the new king to be crowned. But the lots still cannot tell if Liam or Errol should be king. So, they each set out on different journeys to help the kingdom prepare for the impending battle that will come as soon as winter ends. Will the people from the boarding countries rally to help Illustra? And how will the herbwoman’s prophecy that either Liam or Errol must die, come true and lead to the salvation of Illustra once again?
Having read the first two books in this series, I was so excited to finish it off. And this book did not disappoint. The action kept me turning pages when I should have been doing other things. I just wanted to know who was going to be king and if Errol and Adora were going to be able to be together. This is a great series and one that would pick up and read again.
I was given a copy of this book to review by Bethany House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
