Kings, Queens, Heroes, & Fools by M.R. Mathias review

Join Hyden Hawk Skyler, and some great new friends, on an adventurous quest, over land and sea, to find the Silver Skull of Zorellin.

Fight with Mikahl, Ironspike, and fierce King Jarrek as they try to free the enslaved people of Wildermont from King Ra'Gren and his Dakaneese Overlords.

Patrol the skies with Shaella, and her new black dragon, Vrot. With her father's spell books, and the Priests of Kraw, she decides to aid King Ra'Gren, while scheming to free her lover, Gerard, from the hellish Nethers.

Demonic love, valiant battles, and foolhardy heroics await readers in this 175k word (600+ page) continuation of the epic 'Wardstone Trilogy' that was written in a Texas prison cell, by author, M. R. Mathias.

5 stars

Kings, Queens, Heroes, & Fools is the second book in the Wardstone Trilogy.  M.R. Mathias picks up where he left off in The Sword and the Dragon.  I am really enjoying this series and can't wait for the third book to be released.  This book keeps all the strengths of the first book, but with a lot of the world building out of the way the characters and story are really given room to shine.

Since I don't want to give away any plot spoilers I'll skip the description and just say that if you were on the fence about the first book this is definitely worth checking out and if you enjoyed the The Sword and the Dragon this will be right up your alley.

For more info check out the book's Amazon listing or visit the author's webpage.


  1. Wow, what a beautiful cover! Sounds like an epic!

    1. Epic is a good word to describe the series for sure.

  2. Hi! I've got your book review blog on my sidebar but have a question for you. When you say "indie books" do you mean you only review self-published books or does that include books by small, independent publishers?

    1. I'm good with small publishers as well. Pretty much anyone who doesn't have the big money marketing that comes with a major contract.

  3. Nice cover and now following your blog. What do you think of my cover for my first ebook...

    Nice to connect with you...
