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.

Wheeler writes with a strength to the story and to the characters that makes his novels unique among other authors I enjoy such as Brandon Sanderson and the late Robert Jordan. I would place the volumes of Wheeler's Muirwood series equal to Jordan Rivet's Art Mages series for my current favorite entertaining literature in today's literature."
If you haven't read the Kingfountain series do it right now! Ransom is an echo of the past stories, but heck, if Star Wars can do it... 😆
Different characters in the same roles with very different outcomes. I always cheer when the old tokens come in to play. My family thinks I'm crazy, but I love when the author ties his stories together like this. They're like little Easter eggs he cleverly hides. Great read! Next book is already in my calendar.
After book one I was eager for this second book; once this book started up I was back into King Fountain and enjoying this realm.
If you have read book one and enjoyed it, then you will not be let down reading this book two.
I read but mostly listened via accompanying audio version through Kindle Unlimited.
The narration was superb and if you look up these narrators you will be well served to read other books that they ha e voiced.
Ransom, didn't save many good people, I never learned what he could do with the ring he was given💍... There was just to many great moments but then story was ABOUT the King son's rebelled against they're father...I'm glad Benedict forgave Ransom but even that was horrible depressing😌ending, his father died because his son and the King's enemy got together, killed two son's of his yet one of the songs Benedict still became king... And THROUGH IT ALL RANSOM NEVER KILLED ANY OF THE MAIN CHARACTERS/KILLERS...IT WAS SO DEPRESSED😔😢 EVEN THOUGH RANSOM SORT OF GOT HIS GIRL, EVEN THEN THEY WEREN'T MARRIED, IT LEFT IT WHERE THEY WERE GETTING MARRIED🤦🏻♀️BUT THE ENDING PART WAS ABOUT THE POISONIST GIRL ALIX, WHO LOVES RANSOM, AND WILL GET HER REVENGE😌😠🤦🏻♀️😠‼️‼️‼️

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! 😱
