Kings or Pawns by J. J. Sherwood Book Tour Book Review, and Giveaway

Book Description for Kings or Pawns:

Sherwood’s debut novel KINGS OR PAWNS: THE KINGS, BOOK 1 is the first
in a high fantasy epic series sure to please fans of both the science
fiction and fantasy genres.

year is 8994 P.E., and the city of Elvorium is corrupted—rotted to the
core by the machinations of depraved politicians. With his father dead
and the country facing a rebellion, Price Hairem becomes the king of the
elven world of Sevrigel in one of its most turbulent points in history.

Young and daring, Hairem is determined to eradicate the corruption festering
in Elvorium’s self-serving and all-powerful council, which thwarts his
best intentions at every turn. But Hairem’s problems are far more
sinister¬—and deadly—than merely political. The loyal members of the
council are being savagely murdered by an assassin loosed within the
city—an assassin whose brutality knows no bounds. Outside of the city,
the Lord Saebellus wages a vicious rebellion against the capital. He has
been thwarted thus far by the brilliant General Jikun, and Hairem is
certain that the general can crush Saebellus.

But instead of continuing the campaign against the warlord, the council
orders Jikun’s army to be split, sending him on a mission that furthers
only their own wealth and power. Jikun knows that the council’s demands
will leave Elvorium vulnerable to an attack from the formidable warlord.
Although Saebellus has been recently defeated, he is far from
vanquished. As corruption and death threaten to tear the city apart from
within, the rebel Saebellus seizes the opportunity to lay siege to
Sevrigel’s eastern capital and unleash his most powerful weapon yet: a
demonic beast that neither weapon nor magic can kill. With the elven
world crumbling around him, Hairem is grasping for his own power to
fight against the forces that threaten Sevrigel.

Will  Hairem overcome the council’s scheming and duplicity? Can General Jikun
defeat the warlord Saebellus? Will this be the war that finally brings
Sevrigel to its knees? KINGS OR PAWNS offers action, intrigue, mystery,
and suspense—a thrilling story that will leave readers hungry for the
sequel, Heroes or Thieves, to be published in February 2016.

My review;

Prince Hairem is now the king of the elven world after his father's death. The city of Elvorium is very corrupted and as the new king really he wants to get rid of all of this. He looks to his fellow members of the council that are loyal but, they have all been murdered. The world is falling apart all around him but, Hairem wants to save the city. First, he has to find out who has killed everyone and then he has to gain more followers. He has to work really fast or the country will be gone as well as all of the people in it. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for a review and these are all my opinions.
