Kingsride by Kystine Kercher

My post today is on the second book in the Legends of Astarkand, Kingsride by Kystine Kercher. This book was sent to me to do a review on, I was not told what to write and the review is my own thoughts and feelings on this book. I liked this book more than the first one. The first one was a little slow at the beginning but this one was action packed from the beginning.

Prince Bjorn Horsa was anointed to be the king but couldn't take the crown until King Olaf gave up his crown. In the first book Olaf was on a journey to capture Bjorn and destroy him but that didn't happen. At the end of the first book Olaf gives up his crown, walks into a lake, is caught up by a mermaid, and is drawn to the city at the bottom of the lake. The second book starts at this point.

The king's herald, Lofheld listens to the wicked Voden(prince of the elfin) and forges a last will and testament for the king. The Lofheld and one of the women in the camp takes off to tell the king's son, Prince Weinolf and bring him the document. They split up and the Lofheld goes to the kings son and Madame Emmaline goes to her cousin's and starts an uprising using peasants.

Prince Bjorn tries to undo all the damage the selfish king has done as he makes his way to the palace. Having a feeling he is being watched Master Merrilight( the good elfin Prince) warns Bjorn to pray without ceasing. Bjorn finds this is much harder than you might think. He finally get his men to help him. As long as they pray the evil Voden can't see them or have access to them. (I love that Part!)

This is a great fantasy and I know you will enjoy it. You can read about how the mermaids have a wedding,
cool huh? I never knew they did it that way. You can find out the surprise that waits for him at the palace. It's a great read. Have fun with it and God bless you.
