Download ☆ The Fall of the Kings Î PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Summary The Fall of the Kings Uncovering history is being forced to repeat it The Fall of the Kings Generations ago the last king fell taking with him the final truths about a race of wizards who ruled at his side But the blood of the kings runs deep in the land and its people waiting for the coming together of two unusual men Theron Campion a young nobleman of royal lineage is heir to an ancient house and a modern scandal Tormented by his twin duties. Despite the two stars and despite all the complaints I m going to make below I never seriously thought about not finishing The Fall of the Kings Its best achievement setting up its plot making clear what kinds of things are at stake to a degree see below and establishing that the current story has deep connections to the myth and history that the characters retell and uncover without making any specific ending seem inevitable early onThat was well done really in other stories I ve read that hold up legends or images from the past as some sort of mirror for the characters interactions it s because the climax of the current plot will repeat or invert the older narrative in ways whose predictability gives the whole story deep emotional significance The Fall of the Kings does this differently view spoilerit does set up parallels and some of the characters notice and respond accordingly but what actually happens is much less emotionally tidy History doesn t repeat itself exactly the prophecies aren t fulfilled but neither are they disarmed The conclusion isn t uite as powerful as I was expecting from the careful building up in fact in some obviously deliberate ways it s not conclusive at all and I wonder if the authors are planning another book which I would read but that s fine by me because it seems real this way hide spoiler
