The Kingdom is young and yet it stands in great peril.
Dark tales of the unnatural have reached the King's city.
The King is slain in his bed and the storm on
the horizon brings black ships closer to the coastal city
of Erenon. Nathaniel, a clever thief has stumbled upon a job that
brings him to the home of the King when he is slain and Nathaniel is unwillingly dragged
into the quest to reach the southern garrison
which has gone quiet in recent months. Strange powers are helping and
hindering him and the small company of soldiers dispatched to that garrison
as war comes to the city.
They will find those horrors that plague the common man,
an ancient legend will unravel, and a deception so epic in scale it involves the Gods.
The whole world of man and nations who live on the other side of the mountain range known as
the Great Divide will come together in a war no one really understands and as the kingdom fights
to survive it will face an enemy they know nothing about.
  

 
The King's Peace by Kevin Hammond

The King's PeaceHe was a simple thief using his wits to survive. Nathaniel never thought his craft would plunge him into a world of death, deceit, political and magical machinations. Nor would he think he would ever care so much about the truth. THE KING’S PEACE by Kevin Hammond is a fantasy tale filled with conflict in the eternal battle of good versus evil and the haves and have-nots. Some have power, some have magic, but how it is used or abused will help drive this tale. From start to finish, the pacing, the action and Nathaniel, himself, are going to keep you riveted to each page!

The king has been murdered and Nathaniel is in the right place at the wrong time, becoming entangled in a quest that will take him into battle, into the midst of an ancient legend and on to a newly prescribed path that will change his life forever.

Nathaniel is one of those characters you just cannot help but root for as he is thrown into situation after situation with only his wit and intelligence to get him through. Unwillingly recruited into the king’s army, he must overcome the ill-will of his fellow soldiers and gain their trust as his journey becomes one of visions, reality and facing monsters of epic proportion.

Kevin Hammond has created a world that breathes, from Nathaniel’s discomfort on a horse, which is humorous, to almost dreamlike visions of gods versus gods, with humanity stuck in the middle. A quick read that still gives an atmosphere of turmoil with each new twist!

I received this copy from Kevin Hammond in exchange for my voluntary and honest review.
