That which survives the initial assault may yet die from the infection left behind.

In the destroyed country of Lithia, the former Gildonese leader of the Lowlands, King Fice, has violently assumed the throne, filling the void left by the Tek destruction of the country. His unnatural powers of sway have become more potent and his influence is far-reaching.

The Tek invasion has also left a void within the kingdom of Epertase. The war has tested the once-great people and, with the venomous words of men Queen Alina considers friends, Epertase descends into revolution. Alina barely escapes with her life.

Once again, the kingdom needs a savior.

And once again Rasi will be forced to unleash the darker part of himself in order to save the woman he loves.

All is not what it seems. Victory may still mean defeat. The war for Epertase has only begun.

Review: A Kingdom’s Fall by Douglas R. Brown grips the reader from page one and doesn’t let up even at the very end.

After defeating the Teks, Queen Alina thought she would slip into her new reign easily, but what she doesn’t know could destroy not only herself but her kingdom and everyone she loves. Rasi wants to live a peaceful life on his parents’ farm, but the upcoming battle might be too great for this war hero. As civil unrest boils to a full-out battle, both may discover the fight for Epertase is too much than they can handle. 

A Kingdom’s Fall picks up a few months after Legends Reborn. The novel easily pulls the reader back into the kingdom of Epertase and its surrounding lands. Brown plays on the readers’ love for the characters, and I found myself worrying about them and holding my breath much of the time I read this book. The plot is dark, slightly vicious, and fast-paced. Anything can happen in this new world order, and I was hooked until the very end.

Douglas R. Brown’s A Kingdom’s Fall is a must read for any fantasy enthusiast. I can’t wait to read book three!
