The River Kings’ Road by Liane Merciel

Great Book! I enjoyed this book. It was populated with realistic characters set in a medieval time who were dealing with magic, war and questions of succession.

This could be qualified as a morality play. Is Lord Leferic an ambitious patriot or a crass villain? Does mercenary Brys Tarnell have a secret or is he exactly what he seems? This is a well done story that also forces you to ponder the motivation of the characters. What makes them tick? Why do the do what they do? Are they just what they seem or are they more. The story line is good but the characterizations are marvelous! I can’t wait for the next installment.

I highly recommend the book and can’t wait for the entire series.

  1. Very cool Bill - I am your first follower. Lets see if we can get you a few additional adds.

    Thinking about the blog name, do you play World of Warcraft?

    I'm thinking you should NOT look into it. You may never do anything else again - lol.

  2. Being cognizant of one's frailties is paramount to survival as one ages. I suspect it would be shades of Charlton Heston, prying my cold dead hand from my keyboard if I succumbed to the temptation of WOW.
