King Macawin is attempting to oust a usurper from the throne of Kurault. But without help his armies will surely fail. It is up to the witches of the Blackwoods Coven to gain support for the King's cause by taking on a Royal Quest in return for a pledge of support. Three groups are sent off, the first to find Justin of Kurault, the rightful ruler, missing and presumed dead; the second to dispatch a powerful demon sorceress; and the third to rescue a ruler's twin children from a sentient war machine. As each group attempts to further their quests the war continues to rage on with the Alliance army clinging to the hope that the quests will be completed and help will arrive.
The Royal Quests is not a stand alone novel, without reading the first book in the series many of the nuances of the story are missed. The story has an interesting juxtaposition of military strategy with fantastical elements such as harpies, elves and fairies. The strategy portion is reminiscent of a John Marco novel, while the fantasy is pretty standard fare; one can see the influence of many popular fantasy writers including Piers Anthony and Terry Brooks.
This book, like the first is left with many of its loose ends unfinished leaving the reader hanging on until the next book in the series is completed. Hopefully the author will tie up them all together in the third book in the series tentatively titled The Wiccan Path. The author has also written a prelude 2004's The Griffin's Gauntlet in which the reader is introduced to several of the key characters of The Necromancer Wars.
