I recently reviewed book 2 in this series- The King's Hand. The entire fantasy series features Eamon Goodman who chooses from his youth to become a member of The Gauntlet, the famed military might in the lands ruled by one that some call Master and some call the throned- a usurper. The series follows Eamon's rise to power, his dedication to a new King he recognizes as the rightful ruler of the land, and the struggles he faces as he attempts to live in the king's name while still outwardly living to serve the Master.
As in the previous books, the characters throughout the story are very well-developed. There are favorites from the previous books as well as a few new characters who are introduced. The action moves along well, not lingering too long or rushing through what needs to take some time.
The books is long- as are the others. It's about 588 pages. I love a thick, wonderful book that I can hold and submerse myself within. Because it's lengthy, there is time to develop the host of characters- There are many.- and the story that has been taking the reader ever onward to the return of the King.
The book is published by a Christian publisher, Kregel. Although it never mentions God or anything at all about Christianity, I can say that this series has been a great source of inspiration to me in my Christian walk. As I mentioned above, I'm not sure the series is intended to be allegorical at all, but great books encourage great thoughts and can motivate the reader to great deeds. The Knight of Eldaran series are truly great books. I'm sad to be finished with the series, but I'm made better by having read them.

From the back cover: No Man Can Serve Two Masters For Ever.
The epic final battle between the Master and King
Eamon Goodman is the Master’s Right Hand: the second most powerful man in the realm.
He also has a burning secret–his loyalty lies elsewhere…with the rightful King.
But separated from those he loves, and subject to the tortures of the Master’s mind games, will he hold fast?
As the King’s forces gather, the stage for the final battle is set. Eamon rides out at the head of the Master’s army and must finally decide where his true allegiance lies.
His choice will determine the fate of the River Realm.
This is it, the epic conclusion to The Knight of Eldaran series and I do mean epic. It has all come down to this. Who will be head over The River Realm? With this series we were given a whole world filled with evil rulers, righteous King and an empire in need of rescue. Eamon is now second-in-command and he feels the brunt of betrayal and evil plots. Plus the Master is still playing with his mind. There is treachery and deceit and plot twists that you will not see coming. Intrigue, passion, divided loyalties and some great battle scenes are just some of what awaits you within these pages. Ms. Thayer has given us a unique action adventure that will keep you on the edge of your chair as you read and flip pages as fast as possible. I am sorry to see this series end. I recommend this book highly and look forward to more from the very talented Anna Thayer.
