Review - A Hero's Throne

A Hero's Throne
The Ancient Earth Trilogy
By Ross Lawhead
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Pub. Date: January 1, 2013
ISBN: 978-1595549105
Pages: 336


I read anywhere between 100 to 250 books in any given year and only a few standout for me. One of those books happens to be the fantasy adventure The Realms Thereunder by Ross Lawhead released in 2011, so I was excited about reviewing the sequel A Hero's Throne, courtesy of Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review.

The sequel finds Daniel and Freya on the quest to save the hidden land of Nioergeard by stopping the dark forces from opening the portal and entering into our world. The land rests under the streets of England and only a few know that it exists. Eight years ago, Daniel and Freya stumbled upon the gateway, where they found the stone city and the sleeping knights.

The future of both worlds is in jeopardy. Daniel and Freya must rely on a Scottish police officer and ancient knight to help them return to Nioergeard and awaken the sleeping knights before the dark forces take over forever.

My expectations for A Hero's Throne had been amped up ever since I finished reading the first novel, but having to wait over a year for a sequel drove me a little crazy. I seldom ever get emotionally connected to a fictional character, but I got attached to Daniel and Freya. I kept wondering what would happen to them next. Even though the first was better, I still found myself enjoying A Hero's Throne. Most modern fantasies involve vampires, werewolves, wizards or witches, so it was nice to read something original and thrilling. I can't wait until the third book comes out!
