Return of the Guardian King gets off to a slow start, because Hancock must catch us up on everything that happened between the end of Book 3 and the beginning of Book 4. Once we are up to speed, the story proceeds apace through a dense maze of twists and turns.

Return of the Guardian King gets off to a slow start, because Hancock must catch us up on everything that happened between the end of Book 3 and the beginning of Book 4. Some of the twists are predicable (the couple with a misunderstanding ignore the advice of their friends until it is almost-but not entirely-too late), but most are not. I especially appreciate that the heroine stands her ground in the face of tremendous opposition.

Legends of the Guardian King Series. This Christian allegory series is phenomenal in it's insight and honest look into the human heart with its constant battle to overcome between the dark and the light that coexist within us and the forces without that also engage us in the fight.

So begins the Return of the Guardian-King, by multiple-award winning novelist, Karen Hancock. Though definitely gripping and hard to put down, Return of the Guardian-King is darker than the other books of the series. King Abramm Kalladorne trudges through the snows of the high passes in the mountains between Kiriath and Chesdedh with creatures of the Shadows on his heels. At times he despairs of reaching Maddie and their sons who have taken refuge with her family in Chesedh. Also one plotline, that of Simon Kalladorne, Abramm's uncle, and his brother, Gilliard, is touched on, then left until the end, which is a little unusual.

A huge stone hearth and multiple levels sporting candle- or kelistarlit nooks where. clients could dine in relative anonymity gave it its distinctive character. So did the cadre of musicians that performed evenings for the inn’s customers, mostly well-to-do riverboat traders and their local merchant counterparts, meeting over dinner or mugs of ale to negotiate their deals or exchange the latest gossip.

This action packed book is a satisfying end to the series! It starts at a real low-Abramm has had everything taken away from him, his kingdom, his wife, his sons, even his name and identity. He longs to journey back to where he can begin regaining what he has lost and fulfill his destiny, but weather and the forces of evil are keeping him from his dreams. Meanwhile his wife, Maddie, is with her birth family in the kingdom of her childhood-where everyone but her believe Abramm to be dead.

The powerful finale to the Christy Award-winning novels in the LEGENDS OF THE GUARDIAN-KING series Believed dead by all but the handful of supporters who rescued him from his Mataian enemies, Abramm Kalladorne has fled his homeland to the high mountains of northern Chesedh. Traveling under a new name with a group of bitter and increasingly desperate fellow exiles, Abramm hopes to reunite with his wife in Chesedh, where he will offer his services to her father in fighting the invading armies of the Black Moon. But with every step he is hindered, delayed, and diverted from the direction he desires to go, and it soon becomes clear Eidon has other plans for him. In the royal city of Fannath Rill, Maddie alone believes Abramm still lives. But since she has no proof, her friends, family, and public opinion press her to remarry. With its neighboring realms now under enemy control, Chesedh has become the last bastion of Eidon's Light. Desperately overmatched, it cannot survive on its own. Yet the rich, handsome eastern warlord who is openly courting Maddie has a vast fleet of galley ships that could turn the tide in Chesedh's favor....

It's a darned shame that Hancock didn't begin this book where she actually had "part 4" placed in Book 3. If she had, and then devoted the entirety of Book 4 to Abramm's and Maddy's sufferings and whatnot, she could then have created a Book 5 that would finally resolve things. Instead, we get this Book Four, which is a pale shadow (shadow reference not intended as any part of Hancock's "shadow" themes) of the previous books.

Book Four is incredibly long. There's easily enough material for two books, but the author didn't go that route. What she did instead was take us all over the world to end up in Kiriath again in some kind of weird non-ending. She didn't tie up all the loose ends (her "ending" of the character of Simon, Abramm's uncle, is more confusing than inspiring) and although Abramm gets his throne back (without even being in the country) I have no idea how the story ended. Yes, I read until the last page. But I still don't get the ending. It's as if Hancock didn't know how the story ended either, and decided to just stop with a few allusions to things that might happen. For instance, the kingdoms of Kiriath and Chesedh MIGHT unite (which would solve one problem, but create another); the Mataians might be outlawed (in a country that prided itself for its freedom of religion), and so on.

Worse yet, all the seams are starting to show. Abramm's many (many, many, many) forays into introspection, self-doubt, and doubt in Eidon, which were at first believable and later proof that he hadn't gotten too big for his britches, are now just tiresome. I don't know about others, but if I had seen the hand of God up close and personal as Abramm had with Eidon so many times on so many occasions--spoken directly with him and had him verbally and literally respond, as Eidon did, I'd have a lot to kick myself for if I continued to let doubt beat me into defeat, as it does with Abramm. I know this is probably some sort of parallel to the children of Israel in the Old Testament, but it's tiresome, not inspiring. At the end of a character arc, we like to think the character has grown and changed, but the plain fact is that even after his experience in the Dragon City, Abramm is still just as full of doubt as ever. It only takes a minor setback to bring it out again, such as his temper tantrum with the regalia. So now he's going back to Kiriath, and he's triumphant and full of faith...or is he? What will it take this time for him to become doubt-filled and self-pitying again?

And probably a quarter of the book is taken up by the most contrived, artificial "he/she doesn't love me" story I've ever seen. Abramm's sister, left raped and pregnant by her ex-husband at the end of Book 3, is married "in name only" to Abramm's best friend Trap (who has secretly loved her for years) in this book, but since Trap thinks she doesn't love him and she thinks Trap doesn't love her, they wander around being miserable throughout most of the book, and it's just a waste of pages.

It's the abhorrent structure of this book and book three, along with the pages and pages of irrelevancies that really could and should've been chopped (trust me, we'd never have missed them) that ruin the last two books and take a terrific story down with it. I couldn't rate this story as a 2 because to Amazon that means "I didn't like it" and that would be a lie. I did LIKE it. I'd probably give it 2 1/2 if Amazon allowed halves. There were parts of books three and four that were just flat-out wonderful. But they didn't add up to two wonderful books, or even one wonderful book between them. They added up to two mediocre books with wonderful moments, but both of them still left me disappointed at the end, and with a story like this, it's doubly sad.

Last book of the "Legends of the Guardian King" Series. I read book one so long ago, I had to re-read it. After that, I had to finish the series. Now that I am finished with the last book (at least the last one written) I hate to say goodbye to the characters. Great Christian fiction, with a ton of truth to be found. Good writing, and lots of twists. I give it five stars. I can recommend for teens and up. Good fantasy fiction for non-Christians as well!

Overall, I was very pleased with the 4th book and the entire series. The author did a great job weaving the Christian themes throughout the book and enlightening readers about the main themes. Sometimes it was almost too much to read about the constant struggles, failures, and rewards that Abramm, his family, and his friends experienced but that is also what kept drawing me to the story. The plot was very-well crafted! At times I found myself irritated at too many descriptive paragraphs but must admit the writer did a great job building up the suspense throughout the book because of that. I think the ending was fitting and not horribly sappy.

I did find it odd that there were minimal references to Abramm's left arm in this book compared to book 3 even though he still had to endure many physical trials. Aside from this minor complaint, I was happy with the ending and how the loose ends were all tied up. While I want there to be more in the series, I don't think it would be as good if the story dragged on beyond book 4.

This book follows in the tradition of the other books in the series in that the characters are well developed, the descriptions of everything are fantastic, and you are pulled into the story fully such that you care about everything that happens, and the outcome of each decision. I plowed through the book extremely fast because I couldn't put it down, always wondering what was coming next.

That being said, I think I liked this book the least of the series (I liked them all, so that's not much of a ding, just relatively speaking). There is less action than the others and there is so much "waiting" throughout the entire book that it becomes a little repetitive. After the romantic tension between Abramm and Maddie in book three, this book has similar tension between Trap and Carissa. It was the one part of the book I really did not like because it was so frustrating and drawn out.

Despite those "cons", the book is very enjoyable and the realization that it is Moroq himself that is really the enemy being battled here makes the main story that much more interesting. I really wish it was not the final book, and the fact that it finishes with plenty of loose ends makes me wonder if there is a chance for another book some time in the future.

The fourth and last book, entitled Return of the Guardian-King, has finally been published and is available to read. And what a great read it is!

Abramm Kalladorne's kingdom has been stripped from him and he is now an exile from Kiriath. His brother Gillard has been declared king and now Abramm must escape through the mountain passes to Chesedh, where his wife waits for him. Abramm has been declared dead and Madeline has believed the rumors, for the most part.

What happens inbetween is a wonderfully woven tale of love and betrayal, of war and struggle. I won't spoil the action, but this book concludes a very well written series. Hancock is a master at making the reader care for her characters. Her descriptions are poignant and breathetaking, but not overdone.

My only complaint (since I always seem to have at least one) would be that Gillard isn't part of the story enough. He is one of those great characters you love to hate because he was so wickedly mean to Abramm in the previous books and he is relegated to a mere background character in this book. Abramm's Uncle Simon is also not utilized enough in the story.
