Product Description

When Sarin Valon, the corrupt secondus of the conclave, flees Erinon and the kingdom, Errol Stone believes his troubles have at last ended. But other forces bent on the destruction of the kingdom remain and conspire to accuse Errol and his friends of a conspiracy to usurp the throne.

In a bid to keep the three of them from the axe, Archbenefice Canon sends Martin and Luis to Errol's home village, Callowford, to discover what makes him so important to the kingdom. But Errol is also accused of consorting with spirits. Convicted, his punishment is a journey to the enemy kingdom of Merakh, where he must find Sarin Valon, and kill him. To enforce their sentence, Errol is placed under a compulsion, and he is driven to accomplish his task or die resisting.

    Last summer, I read one of the best books ever. It was so enthralling, I declared there has to be a sequel! This is that book. Have you ever felt a compulsion to read one more paragraph, one more page, one more chapter? This is that book. It's a book to hide in for hours if possible. Just warning you! You'll be up too late if you start this at bedtime. You'll forget to make dinner if you begin reading late in the afternoon.

    The tension builds throughout the story, drawing you farther and farther in. So many little mysteries and secrets arise leading you toward the next chapter. Martin, Luis, and Errol, travel through new lands filled with danger, making new alliances and discovering enemies as they attempt to fulfill their own compulsions and untangle the gnarled and twisted sedition in the Conclave.

    If you've not read A Cast of Stones, start there. If you have, you already want this book.

    The Hero's Lot is second in the Staff and the Sword Series by Patrick Carr. Read my review of the first book, A Cast of Stones.

    Thank you to publisher for this review copy.

    The story begins with the evil Sarin Valon fleeing the city of Erinon. The compulsion the church laid on Errol compels him to the Judica in the first place, and the church leaders are bent on using him to their advantage no matter what the cost. As punishment for allegedly working with herbwomen, which is considered nothing short of sorceresses, Errol is compelled once again by the church to find Valon in the enemy kingdom of Merakh. His friends Martin, Luis, and Cruk are sent off to find out Errol's importance and significance in the scheme of things by Archbenefice Canon to Errol's hometown of Callowford.

    As with everything, nothing goes as planned. There are many dangers on the path for anyone on a righteous quest, and Errol discovers that nothing is what is seems. He is able to cast lots and read the results, but it appears that Valon also has many readers at his disposal and is staying one step ahead of him no matter how much Errol tries to anticipate Valon's moves. As for Martin and his band, danger follows their every step as well. Secrets of the kingdom are exposed that change everything. Will they be able to find Errol in time to warn him of what is to come? Or is too late to save the realm that will have no future without the successful completion of the quests of both parties?

    Errol is off to another epic adventure, and I couldn't help but empathize with the poor boy with everything that gets dumped on him. No matter what he does or how hard he tries to do the right thing, his choice in the matter is forever taken with the church's compulsion. This second book in the Staff and Sword series was the best middle book I've ever read. There was no long, boring, filler chapters; it was all fast paced excitement that I remember from the first book, with all-new continuations of the tale. A wonderful story, and it's getting an enthusiastic five stars from me!

    This book was provided by Bethany House Publishers for free in exchange for an honest review.

    The Hero's Lot is a great book. This book was not boring at all. There were exciting parts all the way through. The only problem is that the next book is not out yet.

    You should read the first book, A Cast of Stones, first or this one will be very confusing. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction!

    The Hero's Lot picks up shortly after A Cast of Stones ends. The characters are still reeling from recent events and trying to heal their bodies and hearts. There is little time before the action begins again and readers are taken on a wild adventure to try and save the kingdom.

    Unlike other series, this sequel does not lag in pace nor suffer from poor plot quality. The pace is fast-moving and does not slow enough for readers to catch their breath. Thankfully the author follows different characters on their journey and the story divides into different perspectives and separate adventures that allow readers to slow their heart rate for a moment at least.

    Several characters were more deeply developed and some of their past experiences were revealed. This satisfied some of the curiosity I had about many of the characters that seemed puzzling and far too mysterious for my liking. One such character is Martin the priest. His life parallels many of our own - doing our best to live the way God wants and to do what is right and expected. The struggles he and we face as we come to realize the Holy Spirit has other plans than what we, with best intentions, have laid out, are refreshing. Martin is not some hyper-spiritual character, but one that is relatable and can teach us a thing or two about surrendering to God's will.

    The Hero's Lot is well worth a read. The escape to another world in another time provides breath-taking adventures that leave you wanting more. Thankfully, the last book in the series, A Draw of Kings, will be released in February - I need time to reread the first two again before saying goodbye to these captivating characters.

    I give this book 5 stars out of 5.

    Hero's Lot is the second book of the series The Staff and the Sword. I loved the first book that chronicles Errol Stone's journey from a drunk orphan to a staff wielding hero. The second continues on as the threat of evil becomes even greater as the king is on his deathbed. They journey through perilous lands to fulfill the new compulsion Errol is under. This book is full of adventure and mystery. The only criticism I could give is the romance portion is lacking. I would rather there not be any romance as I find the interaction between the two childish. But other than that, I really, really enjoy this series and if you are into fantasy/adventure, this series is for you. I continue to look forward to the next release.

    I received this book free from Bethany House Publisher's in exchange for my review.
