In their thirst for oil for their war machines, the ruthless Tek invaders brutally devastated Epertase and annihilated Lithia.  Taking advantage of the chaos of the crippling victory, Gildonese King Fice annexes land with his goal to become the ruler of the kingdom of Epertase.  Besides his army, Fice uses his uncanny otherworldly talent to sway others even enemies to support his royal claim.

 

Epertase Queen Alina finds her nation has no time to heal from the invasion as a revolt from within has split the kingdom.  Alina barely survives assassination attempts from allegedly loyal trusted advisors and supporters.  Her only hope for her country resides with the hero of the Tek War, Rasi the former Epertase warrior turned anti-war farmer.

 

The second Light of Epertase military fantasy is a superb thriller that grips fans (especially those who read the exciting Legend’s Reborn) from start to finish.  Once again Douglas R. Brown makes a powerful case that war is hell and should never be glamorized especially by armchair chicken hawks who send others to die.  Mindful of Harold of Wessex having fought a powerful enemy force just before the Battle of Hastings in 1066 (see http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk), readers will relish the action-packed A Kingdom’s Fall.
