Loethar sighed. "It's complicated. In short, the death of my child and my belief that my wife murdered my mother conspired to make me want to get away from the castle. In order to do so I brought our mother's ashes to my half-borther, whom I suspected was considering rising up against me. Now I know that those suspicions were right.

About King's Wrath:
The thrilling conclusion to the breathtaking saga of power, blood, birthright, and enchantment.Source: Info in the About King's Wrath was taken from GoodReads at http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7958364-king-s-wrath on 07/01/2013.
The barbarian King Loethar may have gained his throne through brutality and bloodshed, but he has ruled Penraven with unexpected wisdom. Now his innumerable past sins threaten his reign--as Valisars who escaped slaughter prepare to rise up. Loyalties shift and new alliances are formed as the truth of history begins to emerge.
King-in-exile Leonel hungers for revenge against the man he considers the usurper of his throne. Yet Leo is unaware of another who wields the enchantment he covets--the once-charming "halfwit" brother Piven, now a powerful youth whose exceptional cunning is matched only by his ruthless desire for the throne.
But the efforts of all three to hold or gain control of Penraven may well be in vain, for the true inheritor of the Valisar Legacy is being called home . . . to claim her crown.
