The Errant King by Wayne Thomas Batson

Back Cover: Deep in the caves of the distant Hinderlands, an ancient menace stirs. Townsfolk shudder at violent memories of The Red Queen and even dare to whisper the name Raudrim. At the same time, word comes to Alastair that Cythraul has at last resurfaced, seeking a devastating weapon in the ruins of Grayvalon. Blood-soaked clues lead Alastair into a confrontation from which only one warrior will return alive. Meanwhile in Anglinore, young Lochlan Stormgarden, the new High King of Myriad, leaves the pomp and politics of the throne once too often. While blending in with the people of his kingdom, Loch suddenly realizes that he’s put them all at risk. The fate of his new found love Arianna, his best friend Telwyn, his family, and indeed the world of Myriad all depend on the decisions of the errant king.

The Errant King continues the epic story of The Dark Sea Annals right where Sword in the Stars left off. It begins with the chapter that you knew was going to happen after the end of Sword in the Stars but was not recorded in the first book. After that, it jumps ahead twenty years to a time when King Lochland is sitting on the thrown of Anglinore and Telwyn is grown up.

This book will take you once again on a journey through the amazing wonders in the world of Myriad. Mr. Batson did a great job worldbuilding. I enjoyed all of Loch’s adventures to the various places in his kingdom. The places and people that he saw and met were very realistic. It almost made me feel like I was traveling the world with him.

I really liked the concept of the Purelines. And Cythraul being one of them made him an even better villain. Very cool.

One of the things that I would have liked to find in this book but didn’t was a map. There wasn’t a map in Sword in the Stars so I was eager to find one in the Errant King. I was a bit disappointed when I didn’t. Though, according to Mr. Batson, there will be one in future books.

Overall, The Errant king was a great book. The only things I didn’t like about it was the absence of a map (which wasn’t a big thing and did not affect how much I enjoyed the story at all) and all of the typos and other errors. But if a few misspelled words and names don’t bother you, I would strongly recommend this book. I have already lent it to three of my friends and they all enjoyed it.

I look forward to the rest of the books in the Dark Sea Annals with great anticipation. So far, this has been an epic series and I can’t wait for book three!
