Publisher's Summary

Mykella, the eldest daughter of the Lord-Protector of Lanachrona, discovers that someone is diverting significant sums of money from her father's treasury. Soon, a series of fatal and near fatal accidents occur with members of her family and trusted retainers. Then there are attempts to remove Mykella and her sisters from the capital by marrying them off.

While Mykella develops a solid idea of who stands behind it all, each of her attempts at a solution is used to discredit her. But Mykella is also discovering her talent for magic.

    "Modesitt fails to produce"

    In this resurrection of the Corean Chronicles, Modesitt should have left well enough alone.
    Right from its onset, one is wondering how events are occurring, or even why. How is it that Mykella "knows" something is wrong with the accounting books? Where did the Soarer come from that had all died out? And even its final ending makes you ask the question "Why didn't she do this earlier before all of the deaths occurred"? Mykella's whole demeanor throughout the book is disheartening, showing little or no "guts" to make a hard decision, or to take a stand for her beliefs. Instead she hides her failure by a "dear me, no one will listen to me so why bother" altitude. Sadly, it appears that Modesitt has already brought Mykella back, and I for one, will pass on it.

    Story
    "Less than ideal narration."

    The narrator has an unappealing voice and accent. A female narrator might have been a better choice for a female main character.

    Story
    "Continuing an entralling series"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book focuses totally on a single storyline and a single character, Mykela, unlike any of the other books in the series, in my view very much to its detriment. The link between two periods in the Corean history was welcomed, but did it have to be this short, without any sub plots. I hope that Book 8 isn't compromised by the paucity of characters that feed into it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Was there more than one character?


    Have you listened to any of Kyle McCarley’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to Kyle McCarthy in the other Corean books and his performance maintains an excellent standard. Perhaps a little was lost by not having a female performer for this particular book, but in my view McCarley is perfect for the role.


    Do you think The Lord-Protector's Daughter needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It is part of a series


    Any additional comments?

    My least favourite L.E. Modessit book, missing a lot with its single storyline. I am not sure if I would have read any more if it had been the first. But I will continue and finish the series and probably read more of his stories - depending on how the Book8 pans out.
