A Hero's Throne by Ross Lawhead ~ Review

A Hero's Throne (Ancient Earth Trilogy, #2)

My Review:

Freya and Daniel, with their newfound companions continue on their quest to awaken the sleeping knights in their mission to save the world, from the dark forces below.

Ok, first of all I want to tell you that it is VERY important to read the first book in the trilogy before picking this one up, because it picks up instantly after the last one. Even though I had read the first book in the series, I still found myself confused for quite some time because I had read the first book 2 years ago, and I had forgotten alot of key plot twists and important facts. Another thing that made it really hard to get into at first was how many different story threads there are that at first are hard to put together. But when everything started to fall in place and I remembered again the book picked up and I enjoyed it immensely.

There is plenty of action, and lots of chapter cliffhangers that kept me reading. I loved the very fantastical, yet allegoricalness of this book, because the allegory doesn't pop right out at you the first page of the book, it grows and takes form as you read.

Overall, I kinda felt like I couldn't enjoy this book as much as I could have because of the length of time in between reading the first book and the second, so I guess that would be my fault. But if you like speculative fiction I think that you will enjoy Mr. Lawhead's The Ancient Earth Trilogy.

I recieved this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!
