I finished the Swan War trilogy by Sean Russell just prior to starting into the Kings Dragon. Even though I would highly recommend The One Kingdom as well as the rest of the trilogy, it was superficial compared to what Kate Elliott has created in her book. The characters are both complex and interesting. The slant on religion and medieval history made this a most interesting read. I especially like the two main characters of Alain and Liath. The politics and power struggles that take place in this book draw you in because they are so rich in subtle nuance. I higly recommend this book and I am excited about continuing the series.

I read many positive reviews of this book so when I saw it at Barnes and Noble after reading The One Kingdom by Sean Russell (Great book by the way!) I picked it up, figuring I could sink my teeth into something good while waiting for the next George Martin.

This a great epic fantasy saga set in a world that is like medieval England. Elliot's world is atmospheric and filled with menace, magic and wonder. She like George R.R. Martin, J.V. Jones and Robin Hobb are the next generation of fantasy writers who created complex realistic worlds that geared toward adults.This novel and it's sequel: Prince of Dogs are gripping novels that has sinister intrigue, memorable characters, and stirring battle scenes.
