"This is an excellent series, and Echoes of Betrayal is particularly well done. [Elizabeth Moon] is a consistently entertaining writer, and this book lives up to her standards."-- San Jose Mercury News
All is not well in the Eight Kingdoms. In Lyonya, King Kieri is about to celebrate marriage to his beloved, the half-elf Arian. But uncanny whispers from the spirits of his ancestors continue to warn of treachery and murder, and a finger of suspicion points in a shocking direction. Meanwhile, in Tsaia, the young king Mikeli grapples with unrest among his own nobility after granting the title and estates of a traitorous magelord to a Verrakaien--who not only possesses the forbidden magic but is a woman. The controversial decision and its consequences put the king's claim to the throne in peril. But even greater danger looms. A dragon's wild offspring are sowing death and destruction, upsetting the ancient balance of power. A collision seems inevitable. Yet when it comes, it will be utterly unexpected--and all the more devastating for it.

This is a fun, easy read about the world of the Paladin Paksenarrion. It has all the classic fantasy elements: elves, dwarves, double crossings, mysteries & magery - all engaged in the fight between good & evil.

A wonderful return to the world of Paksenarrion and Kieri Phelan. My only complaint was that she didn't spend more time with Dorrin and the challenges of her role and her family of evil sorcerers. More! More!

Couldn't put it down. Continuation of series. Very multi-character, multi-faceted storyline pulling readers merrily along - I am so glad she has finally returned to Paksenarrion's world. As always, wonderfully developed characters, vividly written world and plotlines you think you can follow - always with a twist :)
