Book Review ๐Ÿ“ฑ

ANDRE, THE KINGSLAYER by Aubrey Copeland

Description…….The year is 1427. The Great Revolution has been raging for eight long years, effecting every aspect of life in the Isobellian Empire. Countless are dead, and thousands of families have been torn apart. But the Empire still has hope to be freed.

Andreas Bellbrook is the Kingslayer: a prophesied hero destined by fate to steal the legendary sword Excelsior from the Black King Tiberius. With it, Andre will end the war by killing the Black King despite his immortality.

But Tiberius has grown wise to the Kingslayer’s destiny, and will stop at nothing to see him killed.

Soon, Andre is swept into a war that he wants no part in, and the only way for him to survive is to join the national resistance and steal the legendary sword with their aid. Before long, Andre’s life will depend on their victory.

My Review…

โ€œThe war was almost over.
After eight long years of endless battles, the king would soon be dead. The reign of Tiberius would be known as the darkest in the history of the Empire. Never before had a king been so hated, and never had such hatred been so deserved. But thanks to a man named Andrรฉ (also called โ€œthe Kingslayerโ€), the Black King Tiberius would soon be a memory…..โ€
That was really good. Although the footnotes that were added after each chapter, were a little confusing at first, but explained much without writing it into the story, so you could skip the footnotes and not really notice too much. 
After eight long years the bitter war would soon be over. The most hated king in the Isobellian Empire was Tiberius. He was a cruel and vicious ruler. 
Andre is professed to be a kingslayer. (Either a slayer of kings or going to be a slayer) 
We then face a long and deadly gave of cat and mouse, Andre must find a special sword in order to kill the โ€œBlack Kingโ€ looking forward clues as to the whereabouts of the sword, all the while avoiding the imperial knights looking to end the legend. 
Itโ€™s really well written and flows seamlessly from one chapter to another. 
The battles are described well. And we get that sense of urgency. Andre needs to find the sword. And he needs to fight the black knight 
The supporting characters are written about well. We have a few, that seem more important, a princess that needs to be saved. 
It has magical elements in the story also. Wizards, wands and spells. A ring that give the wearer immortality. And a sword that can kill a King!!!
