About the Author
Wall Street Journal bestselling author Jeff Wheeler took an early retirement from his career at Intel in 2014 to write full-time. He is, most importantly, a husband and father, and a devout member of his church. He is occasionally spotted roaming among the oak trees and granite boulders in the hills of California or in any number of the state’s majestic redwood groves. He is the author of The Covenant of Muirwood Trilogy, The Legends of Muirwood Trilogy, The Whispers from Mirrowen Trilogy, The Landmoor Series, and The Queen’s Poisoner, book one of The Kingfountain Series.

In the meantime, though, they are sent off on a partly diplomatic, partly spy mission to the king Severn has picked out to be Evie’s husband. They are assisted by another young member of the Espion, Clark, and a new poisoner, Etayne. The king of Atabyrion is harboring a young man who claims to be Severn’s nephew who was supposedly murdered years before. Owen and Etayne are charged with finding out whether he really is who he claims to be, in which case they are to try to bring him back to Ceredigion, or if he is an impostor, in which case they are to kill him.
Other events in Ceredigion include Severn’s niece, Elyse, fleeing the country to marry King Chatriyon of Occitania against her uncle’s wishes. This, among other things, makes Severn really mad, and Owen feels he is becoming dangerous again. Nevertheless, he decides to remain loyal to the king – although this loyalty in part assumes the form of pretending to entertain the idea of defecting to Chatriyon’s side to find out what he is up to. While on this mission, he discovers something much different from what he expects to find.
I like this book I like this author, he's original and you don't find that a lot. I read the last series and liked them very much and was surprised in places which is hard to do to me.
So if you want to read a book written by a person I'd do lunch with this is the guy...

His introduction and later friendship with the new Kings Poisoner, introduces him to someone with an undeveloped or identified Fountain blessed skill which is very clever and utilised to its best advantage.
It does somewhat have the curse of a second book in a trilogy in that the first half of the book after the battle is slow and drawn out, partially in description which drew me away to faster paced books for a while. However, the second half drew me straight back in based again around the events of Richard III and the two boys in the tower it draws on these events to put a spin on the plot and introduces Eyric a usurper to the King with a valid claim on the thrown as he was thought to have been dead.
This instigates a change in direction for Owen and the identification of his destiny to protect the future king. A story set to continue in The Kings Traitor.
It appears on Amazon that there may now be a fourth book in this series so it will no longer be a trilogy.
The intricacy and detail in his book makes you live it without being overpowering or 'boring'. His characters are always brilliant and individual.
I genuinely loved this book.
Wheeler has made me want to read some of the accounts in British history that these books have been based upon which says a lot in that I hated history at school.
Excellent story. Now I can read the next part of this epic saga.
And that's not just once, the book is littered with it, and the occasionally misused word, which is even more annoying.
