Today begins the CSFF Blog Tour for A Draw of Kings by Patrick W. Carr!
As I post this, A Draw of Kings Blog Tour hosted by Chapter by Chapter and presented by Bethany House Publishers is wrapping up today with guest posts, reviews, and more. And a chance for two winners to receive all three books!
A DRAW OF KINGS
The final installment in The Staff & The Sword trilogy
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?

How do you share your thoughts on the end of a story that has been building since book one, and without giving anything away?
Errol Stone’s journey continues. The back of the cover makes you think that him being imprisoned and the attempt to free him would be the story we are about to read. Oh no. Don’t let that fool you. That’s only the beginning!
Then the rest unfolds as Errol and his companions must split up to prepare to fight the final battle with odds seemingly insurmountable.
The story is huge, complex, and at times, I was slightly confused, but I so wanted to know who would live and who would die. Would it be Liam or Errol?
The characters deepened in many ways, except for Liam. I got a little annoyed with him. He was always perfect and beautiful, and all the characters practically swooned in his presence. But then I tend to go for the underdog.
As the ending came to a close, it should have felt perfect, but it didn’t for me. I felt set up, knowing that I was being set up to “feel” one way, when I knew the truth, yet hoped, yet didn’t want to hope. It is hard to explain. Yet with the final explanation with the remaining characters, the conclusion slid into place for a bittersweet ending that will have me reflecting on Errol’s story for a while.
That said, I love this series and feel that these characters and their story will remain with me for the rest of my life.
