Review: The King's Traitor by Jeff Wheeler

Title: The King's Traitor
Author: Jeff Wheeler
Source: Amazon


Against all odds, Owen Kiskaddon grew from frightened boy to confident youth to trusted officer in the court of Kingfountain—and watched its regent, Severn Argentine, grow ever more ruthless and power-mad. Robbed of his beloved protector, his noble mentor, and his true love, Owen has anticipated the day when the king he fears and reviles, yet loyally serves, will be toppled. Now, as Severn plots a campaign of conquest, the time has come to take action…and Owen’s destiny demands that he lead the strike.
Ordered to incite war with a neighboring kingdom, Owen discovers its beautiful, reclusive ruler, whose powerful magic might even exceed his own. Together they mount a daring plot to overthrow the corrupt monarch, crown the rightful heir, and defeat the prophesied curse threatening Kingfountain with wintry death. But Severn’s evil is as bottomless as the fabled Deep Fathoms. To keep his ill-gotten throne, he’ll gladly spill the blood of enemies and innocents alike.


Wow, I did not see this book ending the way it did, wow. There were some predicable parts but that was okay because there were other twists and turns that I just didn't expect. Once again this series is just captivating. Book 4 comes out this summer and I can't wait to get my hands on it.

I really like that these characters have flaws and are believable. What I couldn't believe was how much drama and action was packed into just one book. It was like at every turn there was something else facing them that just had to be toppled. 

What suspense! Great book, great sci-fi, great fantasy get away. A def must read!
