Overview

In Wind Rider’s Oath, Bahzell became a wind rider—the first hradani wind rider in history. And, even if Bahzell is the War God’s champion, because the wind riders are the elite of the elite among the Sothoii, Bahzell’s ascension is as likely to stir resentment as respect. What’s more, Baron Tellian’s daughter, the heir to the realm, seems to be thinking that he is the only man—or hradani—for her. Now, War Maid’s Choice continues the story—and things really get complicated.

“. . . irresistibly entertaining. . . .” —Publishers Weekly

“. . . fun adventure full of noble steeds, fierce female fighters, dark sorcery, serious swordplay, and plenty of tongue-in-cheek banter.” —Locus

“. . . when Weber gets down to action, he’s hard to beat . . . a rollicking adventure that kept me turning the pages.” —SF Review Central

Publishers Weekly
Weber returns to the fantasy realm of Norfressa and his barbarian hero Bahzell Bahnakson (last seen in 2004’s Wind Rider’s Oath) with an intricately plotted (albeit formulaic) story that sees the endearing hradani giant transition into a new stage of his life. The friendship between Bahnakson, a legendary champion of the god of war and Tellian Bowmaster, a powerful Sothoii nobleman, has gone a long way in ending the bitter hatred between the two traditional enemies. In fact, an ambitious canal project connecting the human city of Derm with the hradani city of Hurgrum is almost complete. There are factions, however, that will do anything to destroy this union. With assassins lurking and a campaign against a growing ghoul threat in full swing, Bahzell is faced with an unexpected challenge: marriage! Weber’s impressive realm-building skills are in top form, but fans of his previous Bahzell novels may find the pacing a bit sluggish and the plot twists not exactly unexpected. (July)
