Book Review-A Question of Sovereignty (Allon Book 4)
About the Book:
He shall be Allon’s greatest king; of such a heritage as to rule Guardian and mortal alike – so says prophecy about the man to succeed Ellis, but he delays finding a husband for his daughter and heir, Ellan. Finally, he decides on Prince Sullivan of Gorham. Unknown, is that an age-old enemy is Sullivan’s mother and accompanies him to Waldron, while Ellan’s own ambition has waited for the right time to blossom. Ellan, Sullivan and his mother use subtlety to push the royal family to the brink. Even the Guardians are impacted by their dark machinations. Only Tristine and Darius suspect his mother’s identity. But their efforts to warn Ellis fail, reduces the Guardians in numbers and forces Tristine to flee Waldron. Determined to save her father, Tristine meets two unlikely allies: a blacksmith and a crippled beggar. But how can they stop a coup? And what will become of the Great King?
I have to admit, I doubted if Shawn Lamb could really keep the story going and interesting for 4 books. Well I was wrong! Yet again Shaw Lamb did an excellent job of keeping her readers engaged and entertained. Once I got started reading the book I couldn't put it down! I'm glad she answered some questions I had from previous books in the series. I also love the suprises she puts in this book. I totally did not see some of them coming! Yet again Shawn Lamb has written another hit!
