Publisher's Summary

Parno Mcleod has enough problems for three people. A brother trying to steal the throne. A former fiance who has ripped him apart emotionally, and an enemy army twice the size of his own camped out on millions of acres of prime farm land he needs to feed his people.

The last thing he needs to add to all that are assassination attempts, his surrogate mother meddling in the relationship, or lack thereof, with his "fiance", and word that his traitorous brother, unaware of the death of his twin, is trying desperately to reach the Coastal Province government for "help" in "restoring" him to the throne.

But he gets all that and more as he faces off against perhaps the biggest military challenge of the war when the northern army finally seems to have had enough of just sitting there, occupying southern farm land. 

It's always a gamble any time Parno makes a move. Every time he moves any troops under his command he risks needing them somewhere else to prevent a disaster. He doesn't have enough anything except trouble, and those he has aplenty. And none of those causing his troubles seem to care that they are distracting him from his most important duty of all.

Like, you know, protecting the kingdom from invasion and takeover.

Such is life for Parno McLeod. The son everyone loves to hate.

What a Brilliant Plan

How does N. C. Reed come up with this stuff? He has me guessing all the time and I enjoy it. After listening to this book, I want to find a military strategy book to listen too. It is the characters and the strategy that draw me in along with the buildup and suspense. Awesome book and awesome series, waiting on the next one.

Good series

On par with the previous books. Looking forward to the story’s continuance. Well written and narrated.

If Only I Was Twelve...

First book was pretty good and started to outline a broadening story that I was actually interested in. The second book mostly supported that idea with colorful battle scenes and a narrative pacing that appealed... but character development was syrupy at best and then the thread of a plot mutated into some adolescent romance story where every good guy survives and the listener can expect a myopic, moralistic coming-of-age series of events. This latest episode was a horrible disappointment, one I could not even finish listening through completion.

I don’t recommend to friends, but I do admit that in today’s new “normal”, this may be an escape that appeals.
