Threon, the Vagabond King, is torn from a life in the palace by raiders and forced to scrape a living on the streets of a foreign land. Meeting a witch from distant mountains, a rebel soldier and a woman cursed by a god, he seeks retribution through a quest to reclaim his home and throne. Together they rekindle old allegiances, face an immortal army and learn to trust one another.
But when the gods begin to interfere with their plans, is it a curse or a blessing?
This is part 1 in The Vagabond King trilogy.
The tale starts with a battle, Lleu and the Palimore soldiers kill many to take over a city, but Lleu lets one person go to safety, Threon, but why?
The story moves on a few years and now Threon is looking for revenge on those who slaughtered his family.
This really is an action packed fantasy tale, with amazing world building, properly rounded and developed characters and exciting tension building gradually throughout.
With Kings and Queens, magic, battles and Gods, there’s plenty to keep even the most devoted fantasy fan thoroughly gripped. Absolutely stunning and I can’t wait for part 2.
Thank you to Anne Cater and Random Things Tours for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour, for the promotional materials and a free copy of the book. This is my honest, unbiased review.
