JustRead Tours Blog Tour: Quest of Fire: Desperation by Brett Armstrong

Desperation JustRead Blog Tour 

Welcome to the Blog Tour for Quest of Fire: Desperation by Brett Armstrong, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

Quest of Fire: Desperation Title: Quest of Fire: Desperation 
Series: Quest of Fire #4 
Author: Brett Armstrong 
Publisher: Expanse Books 
Release Date: September 13, 2022 
Genre: Christian, Epic Fantasy

Guarding his nation’s last hope, a teen must escape enemy lands.

While Anargen, Caeserus, and Bertinand are held captive in Stormridge, the war to restore Ecthelowall’s Commonwealth has been waged for months. Their friend Terrillian is on its frontline and hopes are high.

For Barons Fenwrest and Sornfold the fight is too close to their children, whose union represents the only viable challenge to the Monarchists claim to Ecthelowall’s ancient throne. Enter Thomas Fenwrest, an orphan and page to Sir Hurstwell, who is captain of Baron Fenwrest’s guard. The pair must escort the teens to Castle Yerst expecting boredom to be their only danger. Everything quickly spirals out of control when the Monarchists somehow deliver a devastating blow to the Restoration army and Thomas and Sir Hurstwell face the increasingly difficult task of keeping their charges alive. Ancient sorcery and bitter grudges combine to ensnare them. As desperation sets in for the Restoration and Thomas, to where will they turn for hope?

 I am not one who normally reads Christian Fantasy books, although I did read Book 3 in this series.  Desperation is Book 4  in the Quest of Fire series. I wanted to see how the series advances and therefore I read Book 4 recently. 

I have to say that I was able to understand the storyline a little easier than I did in Book 3.  Thomas, Mia, and Delia are the main characters in this book. I really like how Thomas focused on getting Mia and Delia to safety. Thomas and Mia don't get along at first and it was so encouraging to see them work through everything and be able to work together to get to safety. I do like how Author Brett Armstrong always creates characters who are developed and strong characters. The Faith element in this book is strong and encouraging.  I cannot say that I am liking Christian Fantasy, but this particular book has me wanting to give the genre more of a chance. I think those who enjoy Christian Fantasy would enjoy this book greatly. Wonderful Book!
