Product Description

Book 2 of The Kinshield Saga

Beyonders, evil beings that materialize without warning from the realm of chaos, continue to invade the world of men, destroying everything -- and everyone -- in their path. The most powerful of them all, Ritol, has been confined for two hundred years inside the palace in Thendylath, trapped by King Arek's magic.

Having newly claimed the right to rule Thendylath as king, Gavin Kinshield has no money or army, but he's determined to protect his people from the beyonder attacks. With his new power of Wayfarer, Gavin has the ability to journey to all seven realms. To end the invasion, he must travel to the realm of chaos and summon Ritol. But can he escape before the beyonder champion kills him, devours his soul and takes his place as Wayfarer?

If wizard Brodas Ravenkind has his way, Gavin will never make it that far. Not only does Ravenkind want the throne for himself, he wants revenge for his cousin's murder too. After all, he made a promise the first time Gavin crossed him...

5.0 out of 5 stars The thrilling conclusion of The Kinshield Saga 4 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The Wayfarer King (The Kinshield Saga) is the long awaited conclusion to the Kinshield Saga. Gavin has claimed all of the Runestones from the tablet making him the next king. Daia has agreed to be his champion and they must decide what course to follow. Brodas Ravenkind has escaped and poses a threat to everyone that Gavin cares for, but there is also Ritol, the demon, who is responsible for the attacks of the beyonders. In order to defeat the demon Gavin must reconcile himself with his past life as Ronor Kinshield, the champion of King Arek. With the help of Daia and her unique ability as a conduit Gavin's inherited magic becomes much stronger and he is able to see into the past for clues. Brodas is however not done with Gavin or his own goal to sit on the throne. He is planning terrible things for Gavin and company which will only make it more difficult for him to achieve his goals.

This is another fantastic book by K.C. May. I have enjoyed everything of hers that I have read and was extremely excited to get a chance to read The Wayfarer King (The Kinshield Saga). The characters were just as I remembered them with Gavin being an honorable if uncouth man who would give anything to protect those close to him. The story took a bit of a turn that I was not expecting and there was an element of romance introduced as well. As much as I enjoyed the conclusion of the series I am a little sad that there will only be two books. If you have not checked out The Kinshield Legacy (The Kinshield Saga) pick up a copy for start your journey through a wonderful series.

This review is based off of an ARC copy provided by the author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great follow up to The Kinshield Legacy 7 Sep 2011
By Darkiss
Format:Kindle Edition
I was looking forward to reading The Wayfarer King as I had reviewed the first in the series a while back. The first book "The Kinshield Legacy" told the tale of Warrant Knight Gavin Kinshield as he discovers that he is destined to be the Kingdom's new ruler and his struggle to come to terms with his new role as King. Against him stands the wizard Brodas Ravenkind, who would steal the crown and rule in Gavin's place. The first books sees Gavin defeat the plot to steal the crown and in doing so gathers a small band of trusted allies around him. It received an excellent 4.5 star rating which it fully deserved and I was looking forward to the continuation of Gavin's story. There is always a worry when reading a sequel to a great book that the second will not live up to standards of set by the first. Thankfully I was not disappointed in the slightest with The Wayfarer King.

The series is continued in this book which is also the concluding part. This is a departure from the normal trilogy pattern that abides within the fantasy genre as this series is only two books long, although I am sure we will see more of Gavin in future works by K. C. May. There is plenty of scope for more tales of high adventure within this world created and so lovingly detailed by the author.

Once again there are no great surprises within the format of a fantasy novel, although the concluding scenes were not what I had expected. We get to travel briefly to other worlds and other times within this story and this gives us a tantalizing glimpse of K C May's boundless imagination. She weaves her story through time and worlds with ease and skill while allowing the relationships of Gavin and his crew, as well as Brodas Ravenkind's team, to draw our emotions deep into the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 27 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really can't get enough of these books. This is the second of the Kinshield Saga and I couldn't stop reading it. The story continues from where the first left off, leading you with the now familiar characters into the magical realms, family and kingly duties, and an amazing adventure that I lapped up.

Very soon I shall be buying the next two in the saga, and shall miss them once I've read them all.

Better than the first book in the series in that it has more original story elements, and the characters are good.
Entertaining and well worth the money in my opinion.

An excellent read with good well rounded characters including the heels. Full of excitement with surprisingly good storytelling. Very enjoyable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing!
I would not recommend this book or the first book to anyone. The writing standard can be compared to a children's book. The plot is so predictable it is embarrassing! Read more
