About this ebook

Dark 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?

Praise for The Staff and the Sword series

"This fast-paced fantasy debut set in a medieval world is a winner. Both main and secondary characters are fully drawn and endearing...Fans of epic Christian fantasies will enjoy discovering a new voice."
Library Journal (starred review) on A Cast of Stones

"The adrenaline level remains high..."

This book was absolutely fantastic. Answering every question, thought, and hope derived from the first two. Heart breaking to finish, but the joy of following this tale from start to end, the emotional rollercoaster that it is, left me feeling overwhelmed. A great thank you to Patrick W. Carr for this fantastic piece, as well as for the joy it brought into my life the last few weeks.

This book was filled with so much action! I couldn't put the book down until I finished! Very fitting ending to the series. I'm so sad to say goodbye to these characters, but I hope Mr Carr would grace us with another book someday!
