First, I must say that this is NOT a stand alone novel. If you haven’t yet read The Realms Thereunder, book one in the series, then you can read my review at http://landofmysojourn.net/blog/?p=9178.

If you have read The Realms Thereunder, then prepare to be reunited with its cast of characters as the saga continues. In this fascinating sequel there is character growth and character decline. New children enter into the tale as dark myth and legend move into modern day.

I found the pace of A Hero’s

Ross Lawhead's second book is an excellent addition to his Ancient Earth trilogy, and ups the ante with lots of twists and turns.

Not only do we learn about the past history of this fascinating underground world (and the dimensions beyond), but we also begin to understand the true depth of what's at stake.

Like a shark circling in the water, the dangers close in upon the characters, until ... but I won't give away the surprise ending!

Needless to say, I'm looking forward to Ross's epic conclusion

I wish it was possible to rate a book like you rate a hotel -- numbers of stars for various aspects of the book, not just for the book in its entirety. From this perspective I would have given the book a range of stars. But.... generally speaking, as a whole, I really enjoyed this book. I hope Ross Lawhead has plans to write more novels as I would happily purchase them. I am a huge fan of history and historical fiction, so my favorite aspect of this book was that he, to quote RL himself, "...pul ...more

Ross Lawhead in his new book “A Hero's Throne” Book Two in The Ancient Earth Trilogy published by Thomas Nelson returns us to the world of Nidergeard and Daniel Tully and Freya Reynolds.

Freya and Daniel, with their newfound companions continue on their quest to awaken the sleeping knights in their mission to save the world, from the dark forces below.

Ok, first of all I want to tell you that it is VERY important to read the first book in the trilogy before picking this one up, because it picks up instantly after the last one. Even though I had read the first book in the series, I still found myself confused for quite some time because I had read the first book 2 years ago, and I

While now quite as good as the first book in the series, this was a certainly a good middle book. Building on the first book, relatively few new characters were introduced (which I think was a good thing), while many new situations and ideas were introduced with almost no explanation. This made the book confusing, but also lead nicely to the third and final book of the series.

It is very hard for me to give five stars. That being said it was hard not to give this book five stars. I enjoyed this book enough that during the busiest time of my year (and with a baby due at any time),I read it in six days. Thank you Ross Lawhead for this literary offering. I am very much looking forward to book 3.

I started reading Ross Lawhead's books because I really liked his fathers books. I do not think he is the writer his dad is yet but maybe one day... This book was okay. Not great but not bad either. On to the next one.

It seems that this is typical of a second book in a trilogy...left more questions unanswered than answered. I will definitely read the next installment.

Great book but its the between book in a trilogy so I'm stuck awaiting an ending.
