Guarding his nation’s last hope, a teen must escape enemy lands.

While Anargen, Caeserus, and Bertinand are held captive in Stormridge, the war to restore Ecthelowall’s Commonwealth has been waged for months. Their friend Terrillian is on its frontline and hopes are high.

For Barons Fenwrest and Sornfold the fight is too close to their children, whose union represents the only viable challenge to the Monarchists claim to Ecthelowall’s ancient throne. Enter Thomas Fenwrest, an orphan and page to Sir Hurstwell, who is captain of Baron Fenwrest’s guard. The pair must escort the teens to Castle Yerst expecting boredom to be their only danger. Everything quickly spirals out of control when the Monarchists somehow deliver a devastating blow to the Restoration army and Thomas and Sir Hurstwell face the increasingly difficult task of keeping their charges alive. Ancient sorcery and bitter grudges combine to ensnare them. As desperation sets in for the Restoration and Thomas, to where will they turn for hope?

My Thoughts on Quest of Fire: Desperation

I had the pleasure of Brett Armstrong writing a Guest Post for my blog when his last book Shadows At Nightfall came out. So I was ecstatic to read his new book Quest of Fire: Desperation. 

The world building Brett Armstrong has done in this series is fantastic and I love the included maps so I can get a better feel of everything in my mind. 

The characters were developed very well and I loved how Brett Armstrong showed you the characters rather than telling you about them. It was easy to get to know them, and be enchanted with their journey. I will say that I did have a bit more trouble connecting to the characters than in the previous book. However, I still very much enjoyed them.

The wonderfully interwoven themes of faith and strength made this book a great addition to my library!

I can’t wait to see what Brett Armstrong writes next. 4 Stars for Quest of Fire: Desperation. 

*I volunteered to read this book in return for my honest feedback.
