Even as the ground shifts beneath his feet, Wilek sets out on a desperate journey to save his people and his world. But can he do it before the entire land crumbles?

Book Takeaway:

There are several ways King’s Folly can relate to readers. The first that comes to mind is self-sacrifice, which is a foreign concept to people today. With nearly every desire available at the swipe of our iPhones, we have become a selfish, impatient, and somewhat lazy society. But a life of mindless routine can quickly become empty. Such is the theme found throughout the Kinsman Chronicles. These people have been spoiled by a lush living, and no one has had it easier than the princes. But when everything is stripped away, it is my princes who must rise up and set an example for their people and show them “that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.” (Romans 5:3-4)

Why the author wrote this book:

In my Blood of Kings trilogy, I mentioned that hundreds of years ago Arman (who represents God) bestowed the magic of bloodvoicing upon those with royal blood when the kings first came to the land of Er’Rets. That got me thinking where these ancient kings had come from and why they’d left their homeland. I started playing around with the idea of a prequel series, and I was hooked.
