Review of To Kill A King by Jack Geurts:
To Kill A King by Jack Geurts is the second book in the Pantheon series. This book begins with a recap of the first book, The Fire and The Forge. This recap helps to refresh the memories of readers about the basics of what took place in the first book. I found this to be extremely helpful.
After the quick recap, the current story begins. This book takes place nine years after the first book. Imharak is now king and is in a stalemate war with Kem. Asherah returned to her people and is trying to move on. After a fateful raid to a nearby village, Asherah finds herself traveling to meet Imharak. She has been charged by the God of Death to kill Imharak and has been given power to aid in that quest. However, she struggles with her feelings for him; feelings she dares not admit even to herself.
A word of warning,This book does contain very graphic details in regards to things such as war and crucifixion. This book draws you in from the very beginning and leaves you not wanting to put it down. It ends with a cliffhanger that leaves you in anticipation for the third book, Queen of the Dead Lands. This book has not been given a publication date, however we are told to sign up on the author’s website for news of the coming release.
