You cannot stop the book where you did and expect me to be happy about it. You cannot possibly expect me to wait until next year for the next installment. That scene at the end on the boat, well I had about the same physical reaction when I realized I was at the end of the book! Side-note: this is the only downfall of e-readers, if you are really engrossed in the story you have no idea that you are close to the end.
If you hadn’t guessed by now, I really enjoyed reading the second book in TheSword and Staff series. From the start we are one with Errol as he is still trying to deal with the situations that he is thrust into. You really understand his turmoil as he feels that his life as the town drunk was worlds easier than being the hero of a kingdom. Maybe he was even happier in that sad state. The story is almost nonstop action from start to finish leaving you breathless, exhausted, and craving more. Just about the only time the story slows down you fall into a very romantic-yet chaste-wedding scene that will take your breath away once again.
If I had the next book when I finished this one I would have immediately picked it up to begin it. That is how good this one is!For more information and to read an excerpt--click here--or the title above!
