The King's Traitor (Kingfountain, #3)
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.

    I think I'm being generous on the 4 star rating. It wasn't a bad book but it did have a few flaws that stood out and bugged me. First, there was just too much going on towards the end of the book. (Owen going here and there) I kept worrying about how the book was going to end and if it...

    Unexpected twists, still satisfyingI wasn't really expecting this series to go where it did along the way, but I consider it a welcome surprise when an author can throw me off the scent, given the number of fantasy novels, fairy tales and folklore I have read over the years. Maybe I wa...

    Another Hit.Five Star novel, five star ending to a wonderful trilogy. Another Hit by novelist Jeff Wheeler. He brings his stories to life, slowly, carefully, creating his World with meticulous care. Though the first two novels carefully tell a story like the War of the Roses, this one ...

    4.5 StarsI absolutely loved this book. Despite how much of a ride and overall mess, it is amazing. So far, it has been drawn out, long, jumping all over the place, and I just love it! I'm surprised I had never heard of this author, and I intend to read more of him. His overall premise ...

    Satisfying ending to the Kingfountain trilogy which is set 7 years after the second book. Owen is now 24, still serving the increasingly corrupt King Severn, and still broken-hearted from the events in book 2. As Severn grows increasingly more cruel and unstable, Owen is forced to choo...

    I didn't think that this series could get any better. But it does! So this takes place seven years after the second book. Evie had to marry Iago, a ruler of a nearby kingdom as a message of peace between the two countries. Evie is happy and has two babies. Owen, on the other hand, is c...

    What could be the finale of a strong trilogy may just be the bridge to another set of books, and I'm glad for it. The story of Owen Kiskaddon continues to a tremendous climax in The King's Traitor, which finally draws to a conclusion the story of a fictionalized Richard III. The entire...

    The conclusion of Owen's story, which contains a dozen or so plot twists.This book begins seven years after the last one. Owen is twenty-four now, a much more sarcastic and bitter man than he was previously. Part of this is due to Elysabeth's marriage to King Iago, which has left Owen ...
