King's Folly by Jill Willimanson (The Kinsman Chronicles)

Five Kingdoms, a huge, intricate story, and many, many characters are just the start of this huge book. This book was first done in three e-books, so if you have the print volume, it's three books in one. Kings, Princes, Maids, earthquakes, politics, court lifestyle are just part of this book. 

This book is drawn from an Old Testament standpoint. You have kings, wives, yes that is multiples. There are concubines, and before people try to pass out saying that isn't Christian, go re-read several of the Old Testament kings. In this well woven story, we have people in need of a savior. There is a king who thinks the creature in the pit is a god, but is it really? How about if it isn't a god at all? Will he and his people find the truth? That is just ONE part of this multi-layer book that I need a lot more time to write you a review for this.

I can't wait to read more! My copy came from Bethany House Blogger in exchange for my honest review and nothing more.

Their Battle for the Throne Has Just Begun.
But Will It Matter if the World They Rule Collapses Into the Sea?

The gods are angry.

Volcanic eruptions, sinkholes, ground shakers--everything points to their unhappiness. At least that is what the king of Armania believes. His son Prince Wilek thinks his father's superstitions are nonsense, though he remains the ever dutiful First Arm of Armania.

When a messenger arrives and claims that the town of Farway has been swallowed by the earth, the king sends Wilek to investigate. But what Wilek discovers is more cataclysmic than one lost city. Even as the ground shifts beneath his feet, Wilek sets out on a desperate journey to save his people and his world. But can he do it before the entire land crumbles?

This volume includes the first three parts of The Kinsman Chronicles originally released as ebooks.

Part 1--Darkness Reigns
Part 2--The Heir WarPart 3--The End of All Things
