Book Description

Book Eight of the Guardians of the Word fantasy series -

Evil bides its time, ever waiting to breach the thin veil. Action and reaction join to swing the pendulum toward anarchy and destruction. Chaos reigns. The Demon lurks in the dark recesses.

The possibility exists that it can't be destroyed. Evil will endure. It can't be taken, cured, or overcome. Night will cover the world no matter what. Faith may not be enough. Love may not survive.

Amidst deception, temptation and fear, the last choice is made, the ultimate sacrifice taken. Father bequeaths unto son. Natural order must be restored. Those who are chosen to die may live, while those who are chosen to live may not make it through.

The fate of the universe, of a kingdom, of a family...of one man is decided. The final battle is at hand.

King is the Eighth and Final Chronicle of the Guardians of the Word series, an Epic Science Fiction Fantasy that is suitable for mature young adults. The Chronicles are Chosen, Myth, Telepath, Legend, Union, Seer, Adept, and King.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it May 6, 2013

A little different twist on things - mixes old technology (swords) and new (laser rifles and space ships) and it seems perfectly reasonable. Liked it well enough to purchase the entire series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best story I've read in over 20 years March 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is the conclusion to an epic series. It is captivating, enthralling, suspenseful, and an instant masterpiece. I began reading Chosen, the first in the series and was instantly hooked. Each book in this series is better than the last. King brings a great ending to the story, yet leaves room for another tale of the new king's reign. I truly believe that the author deserves an award for a story that rivals The Lord of the Rings. Any movie studio or TV network would be wise to look into making this a TV show, miniseries or several movies as was the case of Harry Potter.

Overall, Jolea Harrison is truly a master at her cf craft. Thank you, Ms Harrison for keeping me entertained for weeks. Here's to hoping you continue the good work. Maybe a story of the future of Britallia?

You are far and superior to any author I've had the privilege of reading in well over 20 years. thank you for such an epic.

5.0 out of 5 stars the guardians of the word series March 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
King is the final book in the epic fantasy science fiction amalgam,telling the story of Dynan Talaerin and his ancestors thousand year struggle to end the repeating destruction of the world. I recieved an advance copy of this book ,so I could give an honest opinion of King.
This book was an amazing read ,any confusion or queations are finally cleared up and all curiousity ammended. I read the first book in the series Chosen and after that I was immiedately enamored. I then followed this series from start to finish. i am happy to say after reading King,that all of my dissapointments were subdued. As saddened as I am it is the end of the series, I am elated to have discovered such brilliant creativity, in a writer.
The Guardians of the Word is one of the best series I have ever read. This story is amazing.I do not have any complaints. this book is one hundred percent five stars in my opinion. King is the final installment of the series and I will only say what I have because I am known to give way to many spoilers and this one is the one nobody wants spoiled. Thank you Mrs. Harrison for sharing your amazing creative addictive writing with us.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Awe... March 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the final book of an epic quest between two brothers who struggled through years to right a wrong that was forced upon them in their teenage years. Good VS Evil showdown! I recieved this book as an advanced copy for an honest review. So here it is.

The first book, Chosen, I got because it was free and was on my recommended ebook list. I was hooked simply put. I feel in love with this series and the characters in it. I had to see it through to the end regardless of the countless hours of sleep I lost because I couldn't put it down. King is everything I hoped and wished for as an ending. All of the loose strings are tied. All your questions answered. There is a sense of urgency that will get your adrinaline pumping as you turn from page to page. If StarTrek and The Lord Of The Rings had a love child this would be it! You will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite series December 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Best ending to a great series. I started out downloading the first 2 which were free downloads at the time. By the time I was done with the second book I was hooked. Great characters and a storyline that keeps you hooked all the time. I highly recommend this series which is part fantasy and part science fiction. The author hit a perfect balance.

More About the Author

Author Jolea M. Harrison is the author of the Epic Fantasy Series, Guardians of the Word. The Chronicles are Chosen, Myth, Telepath, Legend, Union, Seer, Adept and King.

Ms. Harrison has been writing for as long as she can remember, when around the age of eight she dreamed up an epic tale of a young princess in search of the King's approval, who went out and killed the evil monster none of the knights could slay! This short story was even illustrated on 3 x 5 cards. After reading The Lord of the Rings, the fantasy bug left a permanent mark, which was then complicated by her immediate love of Star Wars and other works of science fiction.

"It's been more than worth it, and I've enjoyed every minute, but especially getting to know the incredibly helpful and wonderful people I've met because I took a leap of faith. I'm a writer, a mother and manager of chaos. I try to do too many things at once, like so many of us, but it all usually works out. I love writing. It's what I'm passionate about and what I want to do above all other things."

Her other interests are gardening and maintaining her Civil War era home. On a recent fact finding mission about the house, she discovered the name of a young soldier who died there while being cared for by the doctor who owned the house at the time. Sometimes in the evening mists, it's not unusual to see the shapes of soldiers marching across the fields or hear 'something' climbing the stairs. She has two children who firmly believe in ghosts.
