The Broken Blade by Anna Thayer is Book 3 and final book of The Knight of Eldaran Series.
The epic final battle between the Master and King
Eamon Goodman is now the Master’s Right Hand. But despite being the second-in-command to the ruler of the River Realm, Eamon becomes the victim of vengeful plots engineered by the other Quarter Hands. Eamon finds himself powerless to stop them and the people he cares for are under threat. Eamon then discovers that the Nightholt―the book he long ago delivered to the Master’s Hands―holds the key to the Master’s power, which will become absolute upon the death of the King. Thus the stage for the final battle is set. Eamon rides out at the head of the Master’s army and must finally decide where his true allegiance lies. His choice will determine the fate of the River Realm.
This final book is the culmination of who Eamon is and how his past and present plays out in the final battle between good and evil within the River Realm and the Town of Dunthruik. I was absolutely hooked and could not wait to see where the story would unfold and who would be the ultimate conqueror, The King, or The Master. I cannot get into specifics as it would ruin the ending, but suffice to say that the book and series were well worth the wait. Eamon and his close people who he has put in certain places around him have been beaten, killed, tortured and he has had to deal with the pain and suffering of not being able to confide in anyone around him about his true service. Please read and see for yourself how the book progresses and comes to the final battle.
I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 for its character development and story line that turns and twist with danger lurking at every turn. I received The Broken Blade by Anna Thayer compliments of Kregel Publications for my honest review, I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions found here are strictly my own personal. This is a must read series for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis!For more information about The Broken Blade, Anna Thayer or where you can pick up a copy of this novel today, please click on the links below:
