Virtual Blog Tour & Book Review! ~ The King’s Scroll by Jaye L. Knight

BlogTour-TKS2

It’s a tour stop!

It was sometime ago that we revealed the cover of this wonderful book: the second installment of the Ilyon Chronicles by Jaye L. Knight (read my thoughts on the cover here). Today, I post a review. You can read my thoughts on this book below.

About the Book

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00026]Following the harrowing events that brought them to Landale Forest, Jace and Kyrin have settled comfortably into their new lives and the mission of protecting those under the emperor’s persecution. The fast approach of winter brings with it the anticipation of a quiet few months ahead. That is until the arrival of four mysterious, dragon-riding cretes who seek aid in a mission of great importance—not only to their own people, but to all followers of Elôm.

Hidden in the vast mining valley north of Valcré, a faithful crete has spent years sharing his knowledge with the destitute miners and their families and is known to possess what may be Arcacia’s last surviving copies of the King’s Scrolls—the Word of Elôm. Joining the cretes, those in Landale must find the crete teacher and bring him to safety, but it is a race against time. Should Daican’s men find him first, execution and the destruction of the Scrolls is certain.

When disaster strikes, all seems lost. Could Elôm have a plan even in the enemy’s triumph?

Review

A bittersweet story that is quintessentially satisfying, which will ignite a spark of hope in any reader’s heart.

The King’s Scroll essentially picks up where the story left off in Resistance (Read my review of Resistance here). But this is more than a mission to survive persecution. Elom’s followers are seeking to find and protect the complete scrolls that contain His Word. This second installment in the Ilyon Chronicles introduces new interesting characters and creatures, as well as matures the old ones in a reader’s mind, in a beautiful way. As a reader, I can see that slowly, but sturdily, the plot is making progress into becoming a brilliant saga, so that the overall sensation is like a soldier trudging along on a mission with true purpose. Knight is not in a hurry to just get a book out there that will follow-up the last. She’s telling a story that deserves attention.

On that note, I’ll say that so far, all the plot elements are well put-together. I won’t be in a hurry and say the story is fully well-rounded, ONLY because this is a saga, and this is simply book #2, although, I can see that it’s headed in that direction. The characters are excellently fleshed out, the setting is structurally real in my reader mind, and more importantly—because even the best of authors struggle with this sometimes—the time factor was handled well: if it was day, you knew so; if a character implied it was twilight, you felt it with him/her; and if it was freezing cold, you could (almost) feel the frostbite yourself.

This is wonderful work done by Knight. I’m looking forward to book #3.

* Although I offer this review to the public, it’s my opinion and simply that. My thanks to the author, Jaye L. Knight, for inviting me to this tour and giving me a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
