Soon Tir Tanagiri faces the blight of civil war, and Sulien ap Gwien must take up arms ... more »against former comrades and loved ones, fighting harder and harder to hold on to Urdo?s shining dream.
Continuing the epic begun in The King?s Peace, this new novel brings the story of Sulien ap Gwien to a rousing and moving conclusion.« less
Lots of battle, lots of battle, lots of battle. The continuation of Soulien's narrative of her service to King Urdo and his peace, then to the subsequent High King. It's another King Arthur with other names and place names.
I thought this 2-book series (The King's Peace and The King's Name) were interesting and unusual, with a unique, strong female protagonist, Sulien, who emulates the virtues of a traditional knight. Highly recommended.
