King Breaker
King Breaker (The Chronicles of King Rolen's Kin) - Rowena Cory Daniells

 

The worldbuilding was really impressive,from a country that was very fanciful and pretty to a country that was almost medieval.

 

One thing I did like was the fact that we spent a lot of time on the seas.There was even some sea battles.

 

Probably one of the better of the four books.You basically have three MCs and a lot of time was spent on each.And there are probably two or three minor characters,and every one of these people are fleshed out well.This is done in previous books and they kind of scattered to different areas.This book ties everyone together and brings it to a good ending.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-04-13 19:41
The Usurper - Rowena Cory Daniells

The book picks up right where the other book left off.Piro(the daughter) is in disguise and a slave to the ones' that killed her parents and took her kingdom.

Fyn(brother) just wants to help his older brother.But he's not in the same part of the kingdom.

Byren(older brother) never wanted to be king but now finds himself in a position where he must lead a rag-tag resistance against the people that overthrew his government.

 

I think Rowena Cory Daniels has good writing style,the characters are great you got likable and dislikable,and then a few that fall in the gray area.

And the world building I thought was fantastic.

 

I only give it 3.5 stars because through a large portion of it I thought it was slow,but that could totally be on me.

I am going on to the 4th and last in the series.

The Uncrowned King
The Uncrowned King - Rowena Cory Daniells

I enjoyed this book,what with the now family of three spread out.

Youngest brother Fyn lives in a abbey,older brother Byren is in the wild.And teenage sister Piro is living in the castle.

Byren knows of an encroaching enemy so he is between the castle and the abbey because he knows the elder monks are skilled warriors.This would be good defense for the castle if he can get them back in time.

What he doesn't know is the enemy is making an attack on the abbey as well.

 

Now we have Fyn at the abbey,does he survive the impending attack?

Piro at the castle,an eventual attack and will she make it?

And Byren in the wild caught between the two places.

And the kicker is neither sibling knows if the other is okay.

The King's Bastard
The King's Bastard (King Rolen's Kin, Book One) - Rowena Cory Daniells

This book turned out better than I first thought it would be.The author did a great job on world-building,and I really liked the characters.
In some cases didn't like.
The story is centered around one noble family,parents who were basically forced into marriage and their four children.Three boys and a
girl.One boy is supposed to take the throne,his twin a formidable fighter.The younger brother banished to a monastery because he has
affinity, which in this book is a type of magic.And the daughter who is kind of bull-headed when it comes to rules.And they want to marry
her off for the good of the kingdom.

Everything takes place in a unheard of land with unheard of beasts.It's always cold and they travel on frozen rivers.
