About the Book: In A FORGE OF VALOR, Kyra slowly returns from the verge of death, healed by Kyle’s love and mysterious power. As he sacrifices for her, she regains her strength—yet not without a price. She presses Alva for the secret of her lineage, and he finally reveals all about her mother. Given a chance to quest to the source of her power, Kyra must make a crucial choice: whether to complete her training or journey to help her father, who wallows in the capital dungeon, his execution pending.
Aidan, Motley at his side, also strives to rescue his father, trapped in the perilous capital, while in the far corner of the kingdom, Merk, amazed by what he discovers in the Tower of Ur, braces himself against a massive troll invasion. His Tower surrounded, he must fight alongside his fellow Watchers, to defend his nation’s most precious relic.
Dierdre finds herself facing a full-fledged Pandesian invasion in her embattled city of Ur. As her precious city is destroyed all around her, she has to decide whether to escape or to make a final, heroic stand. Alec, meanwhile, finds himself at sea with his cryptic newfound friend, sailing to a land he’s never been, one even more mysterious than his companion. It is here that, finally, he learns of his destiny—and of the last hope for Escalon.
With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, A FORGE OF VALOR is a sweeping saga of knights and warriors, of kings and lords, of honor and valor, of magic, destiny, monsters and dragons. It is a story of love and broken hearts, of deception, ambition and betrayal. It is fantasy at its finest, inviting us into a world that will live with us forever, one that will appeal to all ages and genders.

My Review: The book “A Forge of Valor” is the fourth book in the “Kings and Sorcerers” series. The easy and light writing style will hook you up from the very first page. In this book we continue to follow our heroine Kyra, a 15 year old girl, who loves to fight like a warrior. She abandons her training to go in the rescue of her father, against recommendation from her trainer. While badly hurt, she is saved by her mysterious boyfriend Kyle. Her father Duncan was betrayed and is in the Escalon capital's dungeons, waiting for his execution. Other parallel stories are told. Alec is going in a journey with a mysterious man to figure out what is his role in this story and his friend Mark is helping Dierdre and the resistence at Ur, against the Pandesian invasion. Vesuvius leads his army of trolls against Escalon, going towards the Tower of Ur, to capture the Sword of Flames. Merk defends the Tower of Ur against the attacks of the trolls, and at the end, when there is no hope, he is rescued by Kyle. Packed with excitement, I recommend this book to the permanent library of all readers that love to read a well written book, which will allow them to live a fantasy full of action. I can hardly wait to see how the story will develop from here. The author managed again to produce a strong set of characters that make us cheer for them on every page we turn. I received a copy of this book from the author and I was not requested to write a positive review. Opinion expressed here is my own.
