Description

Sulian ap Gwien was seventeen when the Jarnish raiders came. Had she been armed when they found her, she could have taken them all. As it was, it took six of them to subdue her. She will never forgive them. Thus begins her story-a story that will take her to Caer Tanaga, where King Urdo struggles to bind together the squabbling nobles and petty princes into a unified force that will drive out the barbarians and restore the King's Peace. Ringing with the clash of arms, rich with high magic and everyday life, The King's Peace is an epic of great deeds and down-to-earth people, told in language with the strength and flexibility of sharpened steel.show more

Review quote

"Walton writes with an authenticity that never loses heart, a rare combination in a genre where we are so often offered one or the other. "The King's Peace" is a proof that no matter how mined-out a subject may seen, a dedicated writer can dig down to a true vein of legend and hammer out gold." -Robin Hobb "Beautifully and thought-provokingly tells a story set in a world and a history almost like ours, but different enough to be in itself a kind of elvenland. It's good to know that there will be more." -Poul Andersonshow more
