#BookReview :: Kingsteel (The Dragonkin Trilogy #3) by Michael Meyerhofer

Rowen Locke has won the battle. But from the shadows comes an ancient enemy--a calculating and merciless foe who has been waiting centuries for the chance to strike. Despite all he has already suffered and sacrificed, Rowen finds himself mired in a war bigger and more terrible than anything he could have imagined.

The world’s only hope lies in Knightswrath, whose hard-won powers he has only begun to understand, let alone control. Calling upon unlikely new allies, Rowen must raise an army to defeat the vengeful Dragonkin before everything he loves becomes a smoldering ruin.

For some reason, I find the cover of this book to be the most appealing in the trilogy. 

Rowen Locke may have won his last battle, but he still has a long way to go. With an ancient enemy, who has waited for thousands of years, coming out of the shadows at last, Rowen may have more on his table than he can handle. Even though he wields the Kingswrath now, he is yet to unlock all its secrets. Will Rowen be able to fulfill his destiny or will he perish in the process?

The adventure continues for Rowen and his friends as they struggle and fight to do the right thing. Once again, they are facing a threat that is too big for them to handle on their own. As their plans are foiled at every turn, they turn towards an unlikely source for an alliance. The plot had been well laid out in the first two books and yet there were a few surprises in store.

The first two books in the series were really good and so the expectation from this book was really great. And I am sorry to report that the conclusion to the trilogy fell a bit short for me even though the author’s language and narrative remained equally engaging. There are quite a few questions that remained unanswered and few threads that remained untied. I was under the impression that this was a trilogy and as such expected the final book to have all the explanations. 

I would still recommend epic fantasy lovers to give this series a try.
