Overview

Driven to distraction keeping control of twin twelve-year-old daughters, Surchatain Ares welcomes the services of a jester at the palace of Westford. Upon finding himself a celebrity and a confidant of the Surchatain, the jester attempts to discredit his main rival for Ares' attention: the Surchataine Nicole.

In countering the jester's attack, Nicole turns to the superior gamesmanship of the beautiful, heartless Chataine Renée, who plays her part with such skill that the jester becomes a pawn in a power struggle between two provinces. However, the game is altered by the unexpected entrance of another player—Renée's younger brother Henry. Exiled for his faithfulness, struggling with the apparent capriciousness of God, Henry makes the move that determines the game's outcome.

Games of God and Men is Book Six of the Latter Annals of Lystra. The story continues in Book Seven: In Extremis.

    Let the Games Begin!

    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.
