In the last book, A Draw of Kings, in The Staff and the Sword series, by Patrick Carr, the battle between good and evil has truly begun.

The king has passed away and now Duke Weir is acting ruler.  He plans to marry Adora.  Errol and the others have different plans, there is one big problem.  They have been imprisoned by the Duke.

There is still no rightful heir, the country of Illustra is on the verge of a civil war, and the barrier has fallen.  What will happen to Illustra and its citizens?  Will Errol be freed?  Who will become king?

My thoughts:

I am always sad when a good series comes to an end.  I really enjoyed A Draw of Kings, by Patrick W. Carr, the last book in The Staff and the Sword series.

There were so many twists and turns.  I was not sure who was going to win or who was going to be the new king.  I could not make up my mind whether to root for Errol or Liam.  They were both people who would have made a good king.  I must say though, I was very surprised by the ending.

The one thing I would change about this book is that there was no description of the previous books, A Cast of Stones and The Hero’s Lot.  I always like to catch up when I begin the next book in the series.

I highly recommend A Draw of Kings to all older teens and adults.  Please buy a copy today and tell your local library if you like the book.

  1. I like to catch up on the old books too, and this time I didn't have time to do that, even though I have them on hand. I agree that a brief prologue describing what has happened previously would have been helpful.
