The game is ending.
Jeff Wheeler brings the Kingfountain trilogy to a close with The King’s Traitor, an epic story drawing partly from English history but mostly from Arthurian legend.
Owen Kiskaddon has served his regent faithfully these last few years. Well, except for the fact that he’s been hiding the identity of the young boy Drew, the son of King Severn’s deposed nephew and true king of Ceredigion. It’s been a struggle for Owen, who – despite losing all contact with his family and having to stand by while the love of his life is married to another man – still believes that loyalty to a cruel king is better than treason. But he’s watched Severn turn into exactly the kind of horrible person that everyone always believed he was, and Owen is putting plans in place in order for the true heir to claim the Hollow Crown. Until that heir is old enough to rule, Owen will have to grit his teeth and continue to go along with Severn’s schemes.
Severn’s latest plan to make sure no other kingdom (or anyone, really) has more power than he does is to start a war with one of his allies. Still playing the loyal duke, Owen travels to nearby Brythonica to give Severn the pretext to invade by making an insulting demand that’s sure to be refused: the marriage of Owen with the reclusive Duchess of Brythonica.
The Duchess’s response to Owen’s proposal is the very last thing he expected. Now things are going to get really complicated.
