Kings of the Empire by M.A. Abraham – Review, Giveaway and Cover Reveal
Amazon / B&N / Kobo
The Empire is rising to face the enemy. They are not alone, for their allies and neighbors have come to help; some have even come to fight despite the judgment of their own rulers. No one knows the extent of what they will be facing.
The Drazon is free, the Demon Hordes are on the march, and their numbers are staggering. Will the Empire survive this challenge? Or will their enemies prevail? The stakes are high, for in failing to win the upcoming battles, the lives of every Elf in the Empire are in jeopardy.
As the Elves prepare for the fight, the Drazon attacks at will. He challenges the might of the Dragons. He feels invincible. Omnipotent. Immortal. He will show the world who is in charge and the meaning of fear. His hatred knows no boundary.
While King Lothrariel fights to hold his Empire and, the lives of his people together, he is besieged by problems. He turns to Gabriel, to handle the greatest tasks, and to resume his place as Commander in Chief of the Combined Elven Armies of the Empire. Lothrariel answers his Life Mate’s call, and soon finds there is more to her summons than their bond. As an Oracle, she holds the answers in the back of her mind, although she cannot speak them, she can only guide
Kings of the Empire by M.A. Abraham is the final book in her wonderful Elven Chronicles series. I have followed this series and M.A. Abraham from the very beginning, where it all began. After reading Kings of the Empire, I was sad that this was the end, and at the same time happy with the wonderful conclusion to this series. M.A. Abraham blows us away with a wild, non-stop, thrilling, exciting finale that wows us with her seamless flow, especially with the many characters, both new and those who have been with us from the start. This will be a difficult review, as so much happens throughout the book that cannot be described unless you read it. I will give a brief synopsis and tell you my over all thoughts.
Almost everyone who has been part of this series makes an appearance. When we last left off in the last book, we knew war was upon us. The Drazon is now free to wreak havoc on the Elven empire, and the number of demon hordes is astronomical. All the Kings come together to fight the Demons, but things are not looking good, as they are sorely outnumbered. But never underestimate our elves, who have much magical power behind them to fight for their lives, but it will be at cost. Constantly, throughout the book, and this is a big book, the battles rage all across the kingdoms. Gabriel, Lothariel, Daroth, the other Kings, all our heroines, and warriors, both and men and woman; new and old; come together to fight the odds. The powerful Dragons will also come to try to stop the Drazon. As the casualties build up, on both sides, we are on the edge of our seats worrying who we will lose.
I loved seeing all of our favorites and there was sadness on those we lost. I was totally blown away on how M.A. Abraham was able to continue the flow of the battles, with so many characters. An amazing feat. I will say that all those characters, especially some new ones I hardly remember (that is me, not M.A.), became somewhat confusing. But it did not stop me from understanding and knowing what was happening. Nearer to the end of the book, I did become nervous about losing one of my favorites. I will not tell too much more, other than to say if you have read this series, you are in for fantastic adventure that had a great conclusion to a wonderful series. We will miss our Elves. Thank you M.A. Abraham for bringing us into your world of Elves, and your wonderful characters we have come to love. Bravo! Once again, if you have not read the Elven Chronicles series, I suggest you do so.

To celebrate our Anniversary, M.A. Abraham has given us an EXCLUSIVE COVER REVEAL for her new series. Coming in February, 2018, The Goddess – Book 1 of The Guardians of the Empire Series.
Chania is an Elven Princess in hiding, and content to stay that way. She has lived most of her life in seclusion. She was placed amongst the humans that had once come to the aid of her ancestors, many millenniums before. She kept secreted by the head priestess, and revered as a Goddess by the people. She knows she is not what they think she is. She also knows there is war looming in the future for these people, and it is time for her people to return, so they can keep their word.
Daeron is an Elven/Dragon shapeshifter, who has served as second in command of the Guardians of the Elven Empire for a long time. He comes from a long line of Kings, and has proven himself worthy of his position of life. He is a proud, noble, Golden Dragon, when he is not an Elf. He is not so pleased with the sudden match making ambitions of his leader, he is not about to give in without a fight. He will not be used in this manner, not by anyone.
Captured by her father’s guardians and forced to his side, Chania, is no happier about her father’s idea than Daeron. They recognize the Life Bond they share, but under the circumstances, they refuse to allow it to dictate their future. Can they fight an attraction that no Elf has ever been able to deny?
