Kings, Queens, Heroes, & Fools Book Review

Kings, Queens, Heroes, & Fools (The Wardstone Trilogy Book Two 2)

By M. R. Mathias

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.


In the aftermath of Wizard Pael’s destruction, King Mikahl is tasked with uniting and rebuilding his kingdom. He soon realizes that the battle is far from over. Even though he relieved Queen Shaella of her dragon, she is still plotting to destroy him. It doesn’t help matters either, when Mikahl’s friend Hyden Hawk inadvertently allows her to gain another dragon.

This story continues on from the first one, The Sword and the Dragon. I enjoyed this one as much as the first. I liked that there was continuous action from beginning to end. It was easy for me to visualize each of the human characters, as well as the non-human ones, all but the demon, Gerard. I just couldn’t grasp his changing form. I really liked Phen, the newest acquaintance. Even though some of the characters have changed, I could still feel the same bonding of them all.
