I have now read most of the series and am closing on the last book. I give big kudos to the author for a serious which older children and young adults will build much good clean character and understanding of military and diplomatic interactions between various groups of people. All with quite a good dose of humor and characters which certainly become beloved as the books go by!
Highly recommended for young readers!
Was struggling to finish the written format. After three years and only 5 chapters read, I picked it up on audible. Greatly enjoyed listening to the speaker read a book of one of my favorite childhood series. Thanks Audible.
In this series I think it was harder to follow. This book could not be read without having read some of the previous books. many parts left unexplained
The death of the Emporer,s cousin
He is an excellent voice guy
I have enjoyed the whole series. I read the first 8 to my grandsons and liked them so much that I have listed to the last two.
