Synopsis for Pestilence

 

The unthinkable has happened:  Alfred’s brother, John, is king.  And it isn’t long before everyone’s worst fears are realized.  Traditional allegiances are shattered under a style of rule unknown since the grand bargain that formed the kingdom was struck over two hundred years ago.

These will be the most dangerous years of Alfred’s life, forcing him to re-examine his duty to personal honor and to the kingdom, while the threats posed by his brother constantly remind him of his father’s final words of advice.  What choices will he have to make to try to protect the things he holds most dear?

Review for Pestilence

I loved the setting of the book, as well as the writing.  Even though I skipped books 1 & 2 (I know, I know, shame on me, but, I have to confess, it was not the first time), I was okay with the timeline, and I was just slightly lost, but that just made me want to get the other books before Pestilence.  I love anything dark, and definitely, anything where there is a problem with the current (or newest in the book) ruler, and having the devil and angel on your shoulder.  If you love a dark series that will keep you at night . . . Read The Second Son Chronicales.

My Review for Seeker: A Sea Odyssey

I love memoirs.  I have not turned down a memoir yet, and I have yet to find a memoir I did not like.  Reading Seeker was an amazing story on dreams and survival.  I was swallowed up in the book, it was almost like I was actually a ghost watching everything.  If you like a good story that has love, fate, adventure, and suspense, this is the book for you.  I promise you that you will not be able to put it down.
