Publisher's Summary

Following the downfall of a tyrant in the Wall Street Journal bestselling Kingfountain trilogy, years have passed in prosperity for the kingdom of Ceredigion. Now, as the time comes to celebrate the new king's nuptials, the specter of a new enemy emerges to destroy all that has been painstakingly built in those years.

Tryneowy Kiskaddon has grown up learning military and diplomatic strategy from her father, one of the king's closest advisors. She feels her destiny lies in defending the kingdom as a knight, not as a Wizr as her parents have decided, though no lady of the realm has taken up the sword in a century. As she seeks to understand her own Fountain-blessed powers, she studies in the tradition of her mother while training in secret and closely following the realm's politics, alarmed by her mother's vision of an impending clash and a devastating future.

But the pieces on fate's game board are in motion, and on the eve of battle, a threatening force irrevocably changes the future of the kingdom and her own. Does Trynne have what it takes to maneuver Ceredigion's key players into position and outsmart the kingdom's enemies - even those still concealed in shadow?

    "The Hollow Crown"

    Be sure to read the "Author's Note" at the conclusion of the book. This is another great book with a secret heroine and a secret villain. So much of this tale is brilliant with an eye toward Arthurian legend. It has its own story to tell and takes no back seat to any other. I listened to the Audible version while reading it with wonderful narration by Kate Rudd.

    "The next gen"

    In the fourth book of the King’s Fountain series we are introduced to the next generation. Battle, deception, bickering, unrequited love, and self sacrifice abound in this book. Very entertaining story. I recommend though that listeners/readers start with book 1. Kate Rudd did an excellent job narrating!

    "Intriguing and Heartbreaking"

    Love this book about Owen’s daughter, Trynne. Evie’s son Fallon and King Severn’s daughter who becomes the Kings Poisoner. Read it! So good. Kate Rudd, rocks as usual as the narrator.

    "Love this series!"

    I would first recommend going back to the first book, which is still my favorite of the series, if you have not. You won't be disappointed by the time you spend on it. While this fourth book is not my favorite, it is very good. It's difficult to compare this book to anything because it doesn't immediately bring up other series. I have read several of Jeff Wheeler's books, though. I really enjoyed the Muirwood series, and although the stories aren't similar, the writing style is.

    The narration of this book is top notch. Kate Rudd does such a good job with this series. She is one of the best at making believable character voices of all ages and genders. She doesn't seem to have a weak point.

    I received a free copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily left this honest review. The free copy did not influence my review in any way.

    "I really enjoy this fantasy series."

    This is book 4 of the series. It's important to read them in order. Characters build over time.

    "Incredible Story!"

    First let me say that I thoroughly enjoyed the first 3 books in the King Fountain series, so I had great hopes for this fourth book. My expectations were high, and I was completely blown away when it surpassed those expectations by miles. When will the next book be released? I'm not sure I can wait for it!

    "Wow"

    I love all of the Kingfountain series! This book was no exception. I can't pick a favorite, each book is brilliant in its' own unique way. I loved learning about Owen's daughter, I am excited for the next installment!
