Product Description

Eamon Goodman is faced with a desperate task. The Master - the usurper who sits enthroned over the River Realm - has threatened to slaughter every man who has ever loyally served Eamon. To save his men, Eamon must bring the Master the head of the true King's closest ally. Little does the Master know that Eamon once freely pledged allegiance to the King. How can Eamon now face the King, whom he has wilfully betrayed? And who will pay the price for every broken vow? The King's Hand is the second volume in the epic fantasy trilogy, The Knight of Eldaran. Anna Thayer masterfully weaves a world of intrigue, passion, and divided loyalties, which will grip the reader from the first page to the last.

    Anna Thayer in her new book The Kings Hand Book Two in The Knight of Eldaran series published by Lion Hudson continues the story of Eamon Goodman.

    From the back cover: Every man has a destiny. His is to betray.

    Eamon Goodman is faced with a desperate task. The Master-the usurper who sits enthroned over the River Realm-has threatened to slaughter every man who has ever loyally served Eamon.

    To save his men, Eamon must bring the Master the head of the true Kings closest ally. Little does the Master know that Eamon once freely pledged allegiance to the King.

    How can Eamon now face the King, who he has willfully betrayed?

    And who will pay the price for every broken vow?

    I think it takes an incredibly gifted author to create a whole world and fill it with empires and kings. That is exactly what Anna Thayer has done and she has done it spectacularly. Welcome back to The River Realm and the city of Dunthruik where the people need work, food, care and hope. However the Master promotes poverty and crime and punishes without justice. To save his men Eamon is given an impossible task that if he completes it will force him to betray the true King. Intrigue, passion and divided loyalties are just some of what awaits you within these pages. Ms. Thayer has given us a unique action adventure that will keep you on the edge of your chair as you read and flip pages as fast as possible. I recommend this book highly and look forward to the next book in this series.

    Where to start, where to start!

    How do I describe a tale that surges with life and sings of beauty and goodness?

    One that puts down roots deep into your heart and then spreads out and fills your imagination?

    Well, as I said in my review of The Traitor's Heir, I do not compare fantasy books to Tolkien's.

    There are so many attempts to reproduce LOTR, and none of them work.

    Anna Thayer, our author, lectures on the work of C. S and JRR. She was clearly influenced by their prose and poetry, but she did not try to retell their stories. She tells her own story of a world and a hero, and she tells it with passion. And now this is my favorite fantasy series since Narnia and LOTR.

    In some fantasies, the clash between good and evil is so large that the individuals are lost. Not so here.

    By the end of this second volume, you will have read over 1,000 pages about Eamon Goodman. His growth as a human and as a Hand, step by step, with falling and faltering, makes you love him. The maturity he acquires and the way he grows into his role- loving the King while serving a city under throned rule- gives depth to his character. Eamon becomes a servant to become a leader.

    His comrades (Anderas and Ladomer, Callum and Mr Bellis) and enemies are also well drawn. Each one, noble or evil, keeps his dignity, and his deeds speak for him.

    The city of Dunthruik is a microcosm of all humanity. It teems with people, all needing work, needing food, needing care, needing hope. The systems that run the city promote poverty and crime, and they punish without justice. The Master rules by force and fear, and the city bleeds dry under his rule.

    How could this captive and oppressed people not respond to news of a coming King, one who will set them free and establish peace? But how can Eamon tell them about the King, when the punishment is death?

    And how can he not tell them, because there are fates worse than death and life under the throned is one of them.

    Final note~

    Obviously, there are people who will avoid this series because it has been called an allegory.

    I say this: If you recognize Christ in this book, it is because both He and the King overflow with truth, beauty, and goodness. (That's the essence of the Gospel after all, the news that a good King is coming.)

    This is a fine story for anyone who wants to read it, simply because it is a story that resonates in us as real, and adventurous, and it affirms all that is right.

    Thank you very much to Lion Hudson Publishing for my review copy.

    It is a wonderful feeling to look at my bookshelf and see this series there, waiting for a reader to dive in.
