It'll be a couple of hours before dinner, and it would be good to get clean. I find it refreshing that an author wrote two books about a woman who has no interest in romance, but remains riveting all the same. It felt indescribably good on my bruised and aching body. And 'what gods' you say, ap Cathvan, making my blood boil, as if they all serve those bloody-handed gods of war? I loved the first half of it and then all of a sudden, it really was a struggle to keep reading it. I was just admiring him and wondering if my Spring would like him as much as I do.
Morien is the heir, then, and he is but thirteen years old. Your deeds must keep my peace, or the people will say that there is not justice when you come to take them who break it, and that Urdo is a false king, whose armigers are false.

There was earth to throw in their eyes.
I knew there might be other Jarnsmen around seeking their lost companions. She did not look back at me. I met her at the World Fantasy Convention in Mesa couple years ago and she and I sat down and had a nice long chat. She will never forgive them. Hardest to scrub off was the dried blood on my stomach with which Ulf had dedicated me to the One-Eyed God. Others, such as the myriad place names are harder to figure out.

This is book two of Jo Walton's debut work and my only real criticism is that I think she tries to hard to show us how she can populate a novel with lots of different characters, different races and different lands within a coherent fantasy framework.

Jo Walton has been my new favorite in the sci-fi and fantasy world recently, but this book just didn't do it for me. The King's Name is a direct sequel to The King's Peace.

If King Urdo will not, then go to Duke Galba.
The writing style is very matter-of-fact. Ringing with the clash of arms and the songs of its people, rich with high magic and everyday life, The King's Peace begins an epic of great deeds and down-to-earth people, told in language with the strength and flexibility of sharpened steel.

He was one injured man alone, and he had sense enough to know he could not get me back to his ship if he untied me. She killed off some really good ones as well. He had had dreams of winning some great prize someday with his lancework. He could not go himself.
