Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy Blog Tour — A Draw of Kings

17 Mar

The folks at the CSFF are touring the final book in Patrick Carr’s The Staff and The Sword Series, A Draw of Kings. I have been rather busy lately (today started the reno of my kitchen and jury duty!), but I am really enjoying the book. I hope to have my review posted by the Wednesday, the final day of the tour. In the meantime, here is some info about the book and the author. Also make sure you check out all the participants’ thoughts. You can find their links at the end of the post.

210450Dark Forces Have Gathered and the Final Battle for Illustra Has Begun

Their journey to Merakh should have made Errol and his companions heroes of the realm. Instead, they’ve been branded enemies of the kingdom. 

In the wake of the king’s death, Duke Weir is ruling the country–and he intends to marry Adora to bring an heir from the royal line. With Errol and the others imprisoned and the identity of the rightful heir to the throne still hidden in secrecy, Illustra is on the verge of civil war–and threatened by hostile forces gathering on every side.

A dangerous mission to free Errol is attempted, but the dangers facing the kingdom mount with every passing moment. The barrier has fallen, ferrals are swarming toward the land, and their enemies draw ever closer. Will the discovery of the true heir turn back the tide of Illustra’s destruction?

patrick(From the author’s website) Patrick Carr was born on an Air Force base in West Germany at the height of the cold war. He has been told this was not his fault. As an Air Force brat, he experienced a change in locale every three years until his father retired to Tennessee. Patrick saw more of the world on his own through a varied and somewhat eclectic education and work history. He graduated from Georgia Tech in 1984 and has worked as a draftsman at a nuclear plant, did design work for the Air Force, worked for a printing company, and consulted as an engineer. Patrick’s day gig for the last five years has been teaching high school math in Nashville, TN. He currently makes his home in Nashville with his wonderfully patient wife, Mary, and four sons he thinks are amazing: Patrick, Connor, Daniel, and Ethan. Sometime in the future he would like to be a jazz pianist. Patrick thinks writing about himself in the third person is kind of weird.

    Ha! I had jury duty a week ago. If you get on a case, I hope it’s short. And I’m glad you had a good book to read if you had much waiting time. 😉

      I got excused because I have a policy with the insurance company involved. But my kitchen reno is taking a lot more of my time than I thought. Spending this afternoon and evening with Errol, Adora and the gang.

        Hope you enjoy the break from all the other. Glad you got off jury duty at least. Not so for me, but I didn’t mind. Only a 2-day trial.
