King's Blood by Jill Williamson

It's really good and I'm glad I read it. I'm also glad it's in ebook format that combines three books that make up the second half of this saga. I have a print copy of the first book and it's hard to read. The plot continues in this book, picks and doesn't slow down. Through the ups, and downs, the highs and lows I never got tired of reading this book. 

Something that happened at the end was harder to deal with, but I can see why the author did that. I can't give this set of books, in one second volume anything other than 5 stars. 

My copy came from Net Galley and Bethany House. My thoughts and opinions are my own. This review is left of my own free volition, and in this case, I'm glad to do so!


They Flee for Their Lives, But Will a New Home Be Found?
The Five Realms have been destroyed. The remnants of the population who escaped now find themselves confined only to several hundred ships adrift at sea. Guided by hope, rumor, and a promise, they sail north into the unknown, desperate to find land that might become their new home.

As the king's illness worsens, Sâr Wilek takes authority over the expedition and struggles to rule the disjointed people, while assassination attempts, vicious serpents, dangerous storms, and dark magic endanger his life and the survival of his people.

One prophecy has come to pass, but another looms dauntingly in the future. Who is this promised Deliverer? And if the Magonians have him, what might that mean for the realm of Armania?

This second volume collects parts four through six of The Kinsman Chronicles originally released as ebooks.
Part 4--Kingdom at Sea
Part 5--MaelstromPart 6--Voices of Blood

This is on my TRL, but some of her other series are also my TRL. I recommend checking it out. Just reading the descriptions I find the storylines thrilling and adventureous.
