In an attempt to be "helpful", I am going to tell you the truth. This was a decent book about what happens in each of the relm's after Kerri became king. If you are looking forward to Paksenarrion adventures you will be dissapointed. Paksenarrion was mentioned several times as "I thought Paks would show up but she did'nt." I had the same thought all the way to the end. Two books in a row about Paks without Paks! I do not understand why authors have to leave the star out of their books. I hope that knowing this ahead of time will let you enjoy the book more than I did as it would have been decent if I had know it was'nt about her.
