Robin Hardy's newest entry in the Latter Annals of Lystra is an engaging read. Ares' twin daughters are growing up and getting into more mischief than ever, mischief with serious consequences for those trying to protect them. Meanwhile, the royal court is still a treacherous place where the games aren't always just for fun. What is most intriguing is the overarching storyline of the series as a whole. I'm looking forward to the final three books and seeing how everything works together. I love these characters. More, please.
