I recently read Brag Medallion winner Thane (Everknot Duet, #1) by Travis Daniel Bow and gave it 4.5 Stars (rounded to 5 Stars). I added the second book (also a Brag Medallion recipient) King’s Table (Everknot Duet, #2) to my TBR list. Here are my thoughts!
Synopsis (from the author):
Becoming a Thane—an elite rebel spy trained to deceive, manipulate and kill—was Timothy’s life. He was driven. Obsessed. Fanatical. Then, in a moment, he lost everything.
Now Timothy fights for survival and revenge in the Huctan death rings. When his recklessness and skill take him all the way to the Huctan capitol, he finds himself enmeshed in a deadly game of lies and deception. While his brother leads a last desperate rebellion in Botan, Timothy must rub shoulders with the Huctan princess, match wits with the man who betrayed his country, and navigate the plots, duplicity, and tests of loyalty that could decide the fate of his nation.
What I liked about King’s Table:
As I mentioned when I reviewed the first book, I enjoyed this fantasy book even though it doesn’t have magic, elves, or any of those typical characteristics of fantasy. The use of a more military air, plus the different directions Timothy and Robert took, made this an entertaining novel. I liked the way all the characters interacted, and the ending was very satisfying. Overall, an excellent end to the duet!
What I didn’t like about King’s Table:
The only issue I had with King’s Table was trying to keep up with the various subplots in the book.
Overall impression of King’s Table:
King’s Table (Everknot Duet, #2) was a well-written, well-plotted, and an enjoyable and entertaining book. With none of the traditional fantasy elements, it nonetheless fits well in the genre. If you enjoy fantasy, add this series to your TBR list.
