The King of Malorn by Annie Douglass Lima

Another great story from the Annals of Alasia!

I was given an ARC of The King of Malorn (The Annals of Alasia #5) and because I'd read the others in the series, I knew I would enjoy it - of course, I did.

The story is a YA fantasy adventure with plenty of action and twists and turns. The characters are well-developed; the greatest change being Kalendria...spoilt princess to - well, you'll have to read it to find out.

There is a wonderful sense of place and I was once again immersed in this incredible world.

The two kings are different yet similar in many ways, each with honour to do the right thing. Erik, the bodyguard is complex and I cannot help feeling sympathy for him, although his sense of honour is in-built.

The villains are just perfect for the story and it was entertaining to watch as events unfolded.

Overall, this is an excellent fantasy, with lessons to learn and principles to understand.

I loved it and highly recommend the whole series.
