FANTASY REVIEW: King Rolens Kin 3: The Usurper - Rowena Cory Daniels

Release Date: 02/09/10


Now a slave, Piro finds herself in the Merofynian Palace where, if her real identity is discovered, she will be executed. Meanwhile, Fyn is desperate to help his brother, Bryen, who is now the uncrowned King. Bryen never sought power but now he finds himself at the centre of a dangerous resistance movement as the people of Rolencia flee vicious invaders. How can Byren defeat the invaders, when half his warriors are women and children, and the other half are untrained boys and old men?


The third and for now final part of the authors King Rollens series. It’s climatic, it’s epic and it was a tale well told. Add to the mix characters that continued to grow and fulfil their predetermined destinies and you get an offering that will more than satisfy the reader. As you’ve come to expect by now, the characters are interesting, they have great dialogue and the overall arc is what the readers have demanded. A great opening series for this author and one that has made her a name to seek out, for guilt free, fantasy escapism. Great stuff.
