The Crystal Scepter by C S Lakin

He's so greedy for power and wealth that he cuts his own father's neck at the age of 15.  Now he's king and he can do anything he wants.  Anything except keep the love of his wife and raise his son.

Ms. Lakin sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you).  It has now been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy. 

This lady writes the most fantastic fantasy adventures you can imagine.  There's a bit of magic, help from the Gods, and monsters all in her story.  When Ms. Lakin sends me a book to read, I always feel like she's taking me by the hand and leading me into a new land with many new characters and challenges.  You can read each one alone or read the whole series, it's your choice.  If you try one, I'm sure you'll want to read more.

Pythias has no fear.  He kills the King of Elysiel and steals his crystal scepter thinking it will give him immortality.  Unfortunately, it comes with a curse.  He meets the being that was the King's enemy and makes a deal with her and then breaks it.  She's a very bad enemy to have.  And he tries very hard to defy his destiny because it's not what he would choose.  Sorry, life doesn't work like that, even in this world.

You won't be bored reading this book.  It has lots of action, you empathize with the characters and it isn't long before you hope against hope that the good guys win.  I enjoyed this read.  Why don't you give it a try?

Happy reading.
