Rabbit is struggling to make sense of his new powers and his new position as King Jusson's heir when a man once scorned by his mother comes seeking retribution-and demands that Rabbit marry his daughter...Booklist:
In the third Borderlands novel, Rabbit, now a royal army officer, journeyman mage, and the king’s heir, meets a new complication. King Jusson has just put down a sorcerous rebellion when he receives an offer of marriage for Rabbit. Lord Idwal of Mearden, once jilted by Rabbit’s mother, wants Rabbit to marry his daughter. The royal party goes to Mearden, where conspiracy, attempted assassinations, secrets from at least five families’ pasts, clandestine revenge, and some exceedingly cunning women keep the action lively. It’s nice to have read Covenants (2004) and The King’s Own (2006) beforehand, though not necessary to quite enjoy this fun fantasy adventure. --Frieda MurrayNote: I have not reviewed this because I am waiting for book four. It is 2014 and I'm still waiting....
Shame, this series had the potential to become a bestseller.
