The Kingdom to Come

"The Kingdom to Come: Book One ~ A Great Light" by Jennifer Ball

| Website | War isn’t coming. It’s already here. Prepare for the final battle. In a kingdom ruled by a powerful monarchy focused on dominion, an opposition develops from the king’s own son, Prince Karhiad. While the ruthless King Vilsig envisions conquest of all kingdoms, his son’s own heart has a different direction. Prince Karhiad is more focused on the humanity of the citizens than he is his father’s instructions on how to one day lead the Kingdom of Merrhius with power.  All the while, the threat of wickedness from a dark sinister force from the past erupts and bleeds over into the present and future times. This ancient sinister beast is orchestrating the moral decay, corruption and down fall of every kingdom. It commands an army of supernatural menacing soldiers bent on serving this evil until each living being is destroyed or absorbed in their own vile image. On the night of Prince Karhiad’s 17th birthday, he is mesmerized by a radiant light and makes a decision to learn of its origin. That choice will bring him answers to questions he didn't know he had, and will separate him further from being in allegiance with his father. The future king of Merrhius will learn things about the past and future that will force him head on in battling the most evil entity of all time.
