Kings of the North

Kings of the North (Paladin's Legacy, #2)Kings of the North by Elizabeth Moon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A good middle book for the series (although other reviews seem to be mixed). The cover of the book is a bit unfortunate, leading an unaware reader to think it’s some sort of cheesy romance novel. It’s not; one of Moon’s strengths is in military writings and the minutia of economics and politics. Not to say there isn’t romance – one of the main storylines is everyone trying to get the king married off and an heir produced. But it’s not the overall focus of the book. Thank goodness.

As I said, this was a good middle book. It set up a lot of things that will happen in the future. I suppose that if I hadn’t had the third book to get right into, I would have been a little disappointed in the lack of answers; but as it is I had checked them both out of the library at the same time so as far as my experience went it was more like reading one long 1000 page novel.
