The development of Dorrin’s character and storyline is especially gripping, and I found myself reading far too late into the night as I just wanted to know what happens next.

It was not at all what I had expected it to be. There’s a lot of sending orders and summary of action, and bearing up bravely under emotional strain that, frankly, doesn’t feel particularly strained. Dorris Verrakai, long estranged from her evil magical family, has the magical powers which were blocked when she first appeared in Tsaia to join Kieri’s cohort restored by the Falkian Knight-Commander and is named Duke of Verrakai by Kieri after an arcane attack by her family on Kieri’s former stronghold of Tsaia.


Typical Elizabeth Moon, this book had tons of detail in it of every day living, how to run an army, a Kingdom, a Dukedom. Dorrin has numerous good reasons for wanting to turn down the prince’s request, yet she is unable to deny her prince, nor the repressed people of Verrakai, especially as she is truly the only person she knows of with the ability stand against her evil family.

But when an assassination attempt nearly succeeds, Mkon suddenly faces the threat of a coup. After six months they raised my pay to six dollars a column and later eight and then years later grand moment fifteen.

This was the storyline that kept me riveted throughout and this was the one I was most impatient to get back to.

War is looming, but not from a mono direction. May 27 Changes, etc. That being said, I wanted to keep going. So I found someone to care for our son that day and went to it. The derelict house next door, which we bought last year and had brought back up to code, is about to get renters into it finally.

Or some of them. While I don’t like this these as I’m halfway through Kings of the North nearly as well as the trilogy, I do otah them well done and satisfying. I had chosen WordStar for its versatility, and loved it. I doubt that, since most of the letter was perfectly rational documentation of factual error, and anyway, I did know what I was talking about, harrumph, being a veteran myself.
