Publisher's Summary

When an invading army crosses the Mercerian border, the only thing standing between victory and defeat is an heir to the crown with no battle experience. 

Enter Dame Beverly Fitzwilliam, who has trained for this moment since she first held a sword. From her relentless pursuit of knighthood to the day she single-handedly saves the king's life and earns her spurs, she has searched for someone worthy of her fealty.

By swearing to protect the life of this untried Royal, she undertakes an adventure that will have her travelling across the kingdom fighting desperate battles, all the while surrounded by powerful enemies who conspire to bring down the crown. 

Her destiny will be determined in a monumental clash of forces where success can save the kingdom, but failure can only mean death. 

Sword of the Crown is an action-packed medieval adventure that is the second audiobook in the Heir to the Crown series. If you like epic battle scenes, dangerous enemies and mysterious prophecies, then you will love Paul J Bennett's tale of a knight who will not submit. Join the battle today!

Disappointing

If you like stories without ending, closure and evil triumphing over good, this is perfect. The narrator though is excellent,

Exciting Sword and Sorcery

Engrossing sword and sorcery stand alone. Dame Beverley Fitzwilliam is the Sword of the Crown. This second book in the series follows Beverley from her birth, through her training, her knighthood, to swearing service to the young Princess Anna. Beverley's story is contemporaneous to that of Gerald Matheson, Baron Fitzwilliam's protege, whose story is told in Servant of the Crown.

The narration by Greg Patmore is superb. Greg brings the characters and story to life.

Love Louis L'Amour? This series is for you.

To me this series has the flavor of Louis L'Amour's Europe based (early Sackett) novels but with elves, dwarves, orcs, and mages. The magic is used as Deus Ex Machina, and does not overwhelm. The characters have depth and draw empathy.
