Summary

Treachery! Treason! Trolls?

Fooled into thinking they are returning heroes, the entourage's royal welcome is cut short when they mysteriously collapse; all but Nikki, the one nobody trusted.

Lady Nicole Arendale's past is shrouded in mystery, but it's slowly unravelling as secrets long buried are exposed, threatening everyone's future. Never one to rely on anyone's help, she has no choice but to return to her previous life if she has any hope of saving them.

Set on a path she neither expected, nor wanted, they are running for their lives, searching for a safe haven in the midst of the coming storm. She could simply slip into the night, but something keeps her with them, yearning for a glimmer of hope.

Driven to see this adventure through to the end, she must now choose; her future or theirs?

Shadow of the Crown is the fourth book in the Heir to the Crown fantasy series. If you like epic battle scenes, mythical races, and a captivating story, then you will love Paul J. Bennett's tale of a rogue who turns the tables.

Pick up your copy of Shadow of the Crown, and prepare for a day of listening!

“As a leader you have to worry when people stop complaining. It means it can’t get any worse.”

Really enjoyed this fantasy adventure. I think I’d have enjoyed it more if I’d read the books before this as there’s a lot of world building and history going on as well as a lot of characters to get to grips with.
It written really well though and all the characters are great.
I loved having the little bonus book (4.5 Mercian Tales) included. As it focuses on 1 main character you really get to appreciate the quality of writing etc without the complexity of the epic main story!
Greg does a brilliant job telling the story and really brings the characters to life with great pacing and voices. He really portrays the intensity of different situations really well too.
I hope I get to listen to more of these stories!
This is my honest opinion on a free review copy.
