Overview


A princess and a stableboy? It sounds like the worst sort of hackneyed formula romance. Think again, for A MAN OF HIS WORD may well be the most original fantasy you ever read. The magic is unique and applied in unexpected ways, some of which the late Lester del Rey admitted he had not met in fifty years as writer and editor. The world itself is unique--there are no humans in Pandemia, only imps, elves, gnomes, jotnar, and many more, all of whom you will recognize as "human". EMPEROR AND CLOWN With Inos married to the wrong man and Rap dying in a dungeon, obviously the cause is hopeless. Only Aunt Kade refuses to admit defeat... 

Duncan wraps up the adventures of Rap, the heroic stable boy whose quest is to save his queen in this grand finale to the A Man of His Word series. Having failed to rescue Queen Inos from Azak, Rap awaits his fate at the hands of Azak's torturers. Inos follows her destiny and her husband on a journey whose outcome even the gods could not have foretold. Original.

    I love these books!

    This is the final book in my favorite series. It brings all the divergent plotlines back together, and everything makes sense by the end. The development of Rap's understanding of honor and honesty is fully completed. There are unexpected twists right up until the end. This printing is not so great (lots of typos), but the story is fantastic!
