Corus The Champion, D. Barkley Briggs, Legends of Karac Tor, Living Ink books, Fantasy, June 7, 2011, 432 pages.
Synopsis: He was once the greatest champion in the land.
Then he disappeared.
With Nemesia's defeat, the Barlows have helped turn the tide in the Hidden Lands. But the victory is short-lived. An even greater evil stirs in the north with a fierce new army bent on destruction. As the twins, Gabe and Garret, discover their own special powers and chase down long forgotten mysteries hidden in time, a thin thread of hope emerges: a fabled king was once rescued from death on our world and hidden on Karac Tor. But who is he?
Each brother has their part to play. Hadyn must travel north to warn the land barons, while Ewan and Sorge set out to rescue Corus from the clutches of Hel. As ancient destinies rise from the ash heap of history, Ewan is left with a bitter choice. Will he sacrifice what is most precious to discover whether Corus lives? Even more important, if Corus is alive, can he wake the Sleeping King of legend...before it's too late?
My thoughts: Corus The Champion continues the well-written, character-steeped form of the previous book. The plot continues well also. All the Christian teaching in the book was accurate, yet behind-the-scenes. Lots of characters come forth and strut their stuff in this volume, and it worked well. Kudos to Mr. Briggs!
This book was provided free by the publisher, in conjunction with CSFF Blog Tours. I was not required to write a positive review, and the opinions expressed are mine.
