A Draw of Kings by Patrick Carr

Dark Forces Have Gathered and the Final Battle for Illustra Has Begun
Their journey to Merakh should have made Errol and his companions heroes of the realm. Instead, they've been branded enemies of the kingdom.

In the wake of the king's death, Duke Weir is ruling the country--and he intends to marry Adora to bring an heir from the royal line. With Errol and the others imprisoned and the identity of the rightful heir to the throne still hidden in secrecy, Illustra is on the verge of civil war--and threatened by hostile forces gathering on every side.

A dangerous mission to free Errol is attempted, but the dangers facing the kingdom mount with every passing moment. The barrier has fallen, ferrals are swarming toward the land, and their enemies draw ever closer. Will the discovery of the true heir turn back the tide of Illustra's destruction?

My review:
   I rarely read fantasy fiction, but this series had sounded pretty good, so I gave it a try, and have enjoyed it.

  This is the third and final book in the series, and is the best and most exciting. Everything that has happened in the other two books is brought to an exciting and satisfying conclusion.

  The book is full of action, and likable characters. If all Christian fantasy books were like these, I'd read more of them. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and series.
