Patrick Carr follows his debut novel, A Cast of Stones, and its sequel, The Hero’s Lot, with another engaging fantasy in the Staff and the Sword series, A Draw of Kings.

In A Cast of Stones, Errol and Liam were deemed vital to the kingdom’s future, but no one knew what role they would play when the king died. Errol thinks his troubles are over when the corrupt church leader, Sarin, flees the kingdom, but Errol still has dangerous enemies to face.



In The Hero’s Lot, with enemies attacking Errol more frequently than Liam, Martin and Luis are sent to Errol’s home village to discover what makes Errol so important to the kingdom. When Errol is falsely accused of working with spirits, his punishment is to find Sarin in the kingdom of Merakh and kill him or to die trying.


In A Draw of Kings, Errol and his companions are sent on a dangerous mission to Merakh to recover the Book of Magis. They are pursued and imprisoned by Duke Weir, Illustra’s interim ruler following the king’s death. Weir intends to marry Adora, daughter of the former king and Errol’s beloved.

Meanwhile, Illustra is on the verge of civil war as the true identity of the king’s heir is still unknown . . .
