Kurzbeschreibung

Legends of the Guardian King Book 3- Karen Hancock has created a beautiful and powerful fantasy series that continues to win new readers and remind them of who holds their hopes and victories in His hands. In Abramm's world, God is close to his followers, evil takes many forms, and one must believe in the light to see the darkness. While Abramm's coronation is still underway, rival leaders are already plotting their return to power.Worse yet, as the hour approaches for Abramm's marriage to the Chesedhan crown princess--required to seal the desperately needed alliance between their two countries--he finds himself deeply attracted to her younger sister. Will Eidon give Abramm ultimate victory, or will his enemies succeed in destroying him and his beloved realm?

HASH(0x9881c9fc) von 5 Sternen A fantastic allegorical fantasy 5. November 2005
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The king of Kiriath, Abramm Kalladorne, knows that though he has defeated several foes, the invincible Black Moon army of Esurhmarches towards his country crushing the feeble opposition along the way. Esurh plans to control all land that touches the Sea of Sharss including Kiriath. To Esurh, Abramm will always remain the "White Pretender" slave who fought in their arenas at one time. Abramm also has internal dissension fostered by the still popular Mataio religious order, whose insurgency failed, but remain openly defiant and objects to his rule.

Abramm accepts a marriage of alliance with the ruling family of nearby Chesedh; he will wed Princess Briellen, but Abramm is more attracted to her younger sister Lady Madeleine, who feels the same way as he does. If they go down that path they will fail their respective nations at a time when their enemies near.

The third epic tale in the award winning Legends of the Guardian-King saga, SHADOW OVER KIRIATH, is a fantastic allegorical fantasy that contains several major subplots that tie back to the main superb story line. Though he has defeated his internal opponents such as his brother (who sold him into slavery) and the Mataio order, both and others remain a threat to his reign and to his country. Those machinations pale alongside of the coming invaders as even the monarch has doubts that Eidon will save his people from slavery. He also ponders how to marry the woman who stirs his blood without alienating Chesedh or Eidon. Karen Hancock provides a powerful stand alone epic tale that is excellent as a stand alone, but is incredible when read back to back to back with its predecessors (see LIGHT OF EIDON and THE SHADOW WITHIN).

HASH(0x98ca9924) von 5 Sternen They just keep getting better and better... 9. Dezember 2005
Von Rebekah Martin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
After his encounter with the morwhol in The Shadow Within, Abramm Kalladorne is recovering from the wounds he received during the fight. Though he has succeeded in taking his rightful position of king of Kiriath, there is an upward battle to securing Kiriath's peace and security. Abramm is also coming to grips that his injury has scarred and crippled him for life, which evokes depression on his part. It seems that everything that can go wrong has come about.

The evil has again begun plotting his demise, but is taking a different tack this time. While Abramm is promised to be married with the princess of Chesedh, to create an alliance with the neighboring country, he has found himself dangerously attracted to her younger sister. Lady Madeline also is beginning to have feeling for Abramm, but understands that by being a second daughter, she could never act upon them. As the wedding of Abramm and Princess Brellian approaches, Abramm continues working to restore his countries defenses and ferreting out those who are conspiring against him.

Once again, Hancock has written an excellent fantasy. I have loved this series since I read the first one, and I have eagerly awaited each subsequent book. And each time, I have found the next to be better than the one before. Filled with romance, faith, betrayal, and joy even in suffering, Shadow over Kiriath kept me enthralled throughout the whole story. I found I could not put it down until I had finished it. Definitely a must read for all who love fantasy.

HASH(0x9f9ba3d8) von 5 Sternen The saga continues! 25. November 2005
Von Shannon McNear - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The third installment of the four-part Legends of the Guardian King opens on Abramm's coronation day. Beset by threatened disaster and his first horrified look at the scars from his fight with the morwhol six months before, Abramm isn't at all sure he'll be accepted as king, even now.

Thus begins Abramm's next trial of trust. "The road ahead will be more difficult than anything you have yet faced, though its blessings are beyond anything you can imagine," he is told. Will he accept the path Eidon has for him, or choose the way of temporary relief from suffering?

Shadow Over Kiriath is a masterful work, full of Karen's now-trademark blend of romance, intrigue, and adventure. This is also her deepest spiritually-she so perfectly captures the proving of true faith in the fires of disappointment and loss. This part of the story was both easier to read than I expected, but harder too-and left me awash in the wonder of God's grace and unfailing love.

As always, her characters continue to leap off the page, living and breathing in their own right. Her storytelling remains tight, her description vivid, and my only complaint is at having to wait a whole year again to read the series finale.

HASH(0x9873dbb8) von 5 Sternen Latest from Hancock -- another treasure 28. November 2005
Von Sharon Hinck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm a huge fan of Karen Hancock. Her latest book is as amazing as all her other award-winning novels. SHADOW OVER KIRIATH continues the Legends of the Guardian King with rich use of language and powerful symbolism.

Abramm faces his most glorious victories and his darkest suffering-all with a new level of maturity and wisdom. I especially enjoyed his blossoming relationship with Maddie, and the swashbuckling adventure of the story.

I was also inspired by the example of a man who battles the same temptations I do-fear, doubt, confusion and constant awareness of scars and weaknesses. Hope grew in my own heart as I read about a man who comes to the end of himself and finds he is never alone.

Be warned that as part of a series, the book ends with some intense issues unresolved. But even with more to come, there is enough hope to keep me going until the next book. I can't wait for the next installment. If you haven't yet discovered this series, now is a great time to start.

HASH(0x98739f0c) von 5 Sternen Stopping When the Story's Over--Contains Spoilers 18. September 2014
Von M. Hughes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Karen Hancock gave us a believable and sympathetic character in Abramm, the monk-turned-warrior, warrior-turned-king, and she spun two well-crafted stories in the first two books of the series. But with this one...well, something happened.

For one thing, a book can be a thousand pages long, if that's how long it takes to tell the story, but only one major story should be told. If there are two stories running parallel, or multiple subplots, that's fine, but everything should add up to one big story, not a story that ends and then begins afresh on the next page only to end again in a cliffhanger, and that's what happens here.

The story here should be the one in which Abramm gets his bride and chases off the pesky invaders. And that's exactly what happens. Unfortunately, the story doesn't stop there. It could have...and it looks as if Hancock wondered if she should stop or go on. She could have stopped with the wedding, the happy ending, and then the grim foreboding of something terrible to happen in the future--a prophecy which could have been carried out in the next book. BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT HAPPENS. Instead, you turn the page and are greeted by Part 4, set some five years later, in which WHAM, the entire kingdom falls apart. The bratty brother Gillard, now a full-time servant of evil (think of him as selling his soul to the devil so he can become king) ousts Abramm from power and plunges the country of Kiriath into darkness. Almost too fast to follow, we are treated to Abramm's torture by Mataian monks, his wife and children's capture by Gillard, Abramm's rescue by his devoted Uncle Simon, and Madeleine's defeated return home. It's as if Hancock decided, no, it isn't enough to promise forthcoming tragedy--I've got to end the book with it, so people will come back and read the next book. And it doesn't work. The ending feels rushed (with action of the kind I've just described, it should be rushed--but not too tightly for the story's sake) and forced.

Part Four should actually be where Book 4, "Return of the Guardian King," begins, but I guess Hancock thought Abramm had to leave before he could return. He didn't. Book Four actually contains enough material for two books, but what appears to have happened is that Hancock got tired and decided to rush through the end as fast as possible. So book 3 ends on a cliffhanger--and this damages book 4 even more.
