    Thoughtful Fantasy

    Jo Walton's wonderfully crafted retelling of Arthurian legend is a perfect example of what a skilled writer can do with well-mined themes when approaching them from a fresh perspective. The tale of Sulien's service to her king, told from her perspective, is neatly interwoven with themes of war, peace, and the struggle of traditional ways giving way to the new. Whether describing a vivid battle or the musings of Sulien, Walton effortlessly holds the readers attention with her crisp and flowing style. Lovers of fantasy, particularly those who have grown weary of the cookie cutter volumes crowding bookstore shelves, will especially find Walton a breath of fresh air and should not miss picking up this book. Highly recommended.

    Great worldbuilding.

    'King's Peace', Jo Walton's first novel, is well planned and well written. Its an obviously fictional world that's large and intricate and put together with considerable foresight and thoughtfulness.
