Warrior's Ransom (The First Argentines Book 2) Kindle Edition
A loyal knight is on a quest to save a dynasty from itself in the thrilling sequel to Knight’s Ransom by Wall Street Journal bestselling author Jeff Wheeler.
After a pilgrimage to the East Kingdoms seeking a blessing from the Fountain, source of the land’s magic, Sir Ransom Barton returns home in search of two dreams: Claire de Murrow, the heiress he loves, and a patron for his warrior skills. Unexpectedly, Ransom finds himself in the favor of Devon, the notorious Elder King. Brought into the ruler’s mesnie and given two wards of his own, Ransom is devoted to his privileged new position. He’s also privy to the running of the realm and to all its courtly intrigues—notably, the machinations of the king’s three remaining sons, all engaged in a manipulative battle to become heir to the throne.
As Ransom is thrust into the middle of poisonous family conspiracies and betrayals, allegiances are shattered, and Ransom fears he may end up serving his worst enemy—or worse, face exile for demonstrating loyalty.
Drawing on his developing powers, Ransom takes up arms against the dark forces coming in a war that will test the limits of his courage and determine the fate of the dangerous and fractious Argentine dynasty.

Whereas the first book wove an intricate web of dynastic battles, magical powers and contrasting characters this book relied upon the reader's previous engagement to keep them hooked. Unfortunately, it was superficial and lacking in credibility, with characters acting in predictable, almost stereotypical ways to achieve their ambitions and the hero, Sir Ransom, battling through all odds to win in the end. The intrigue of the first book was sorely lacking, with an inevitable finale and a far from satisfactory conclusion to the war between King Devon and his sons.
Now I wait for the next two in this series! 😱
