For the first time in nearly twenty years, Elizabeth Moon returns to the thrilling realm of her superb Deed of Paksenarrion trilogy.
Thanks to Paks's courage, the long-vanished heir to the half-elven kingdom of Lyonya has been revealed as Kieri Phelan, a formidable mercenary who earned a title--and enemies--in the neighboring kingdom of Tsaia, where Prince Mikeli suddenly faces the threat of a coup. Acting swiftly, Mikeli strikes at the powerful family behind the attack: the Verrakaien, magelords steeped in death and evil. Mikeli's survival--and that of Tsaia--depend on the only Verrakai whose magery is not tainted with innocent blood. Two kings stand at a pivotal point in the history of their worlds. For dark forces are gathering against them, knit in a secret conspiracy more sinister and far more ancient than they can imagine.

This is a fun and pleasant fantasy read.

I was so excited when this one came out. It is a return to the world of Paks (yeah!), but from the points of view of Kieri, Dorrin and Arcolin...and others along the way. It flies back and forth, with broken continuity...a real departure from Sheepfarmer's daughter. So, if you are expecting an unbroken narrative...this isn't it. BUT, great to revisit old friends, and the world has been changed by Pask's actions. Full of new dangers and adventures—and old dangers that were left behind to come and bite back—with mystery and magic and friends and enemies all playing a role. While I didn't love it as much as I hoped I would—maybe it is that phenomenon of too much anticipation—I also can't wait to see how it all gets resolved.
