The murder of Surchatain Cedric has ended his brutal reign over Lystra. But according to the Law of Roman, Cedric�s son, seven-year-old Henry, must either rule or die when he comes of age. To save his life, Commander Ares swears to uphold Henry�s ascension.

But while the throne is vacant, pretenders come pouring into Westford to press preposterous claims of rulership. In the midst of this turmoil, the young Chataine of Qarqar arrives, seeking safety from pursuit. In choosing to shelter her, Ares invites attacks from enemies known and unknown.

When the crisis comes to a head, and leadership is thrust upon Ares, long-hidden pages of Roman�s Law come to light that seal Henry�s fate and make Ares� course inevitable.

Ares of Westford: Book Two of the Latter Annals of Lystra, is the sequel to Book One, Nicole of Prie Mer. The story continues in Book Three, Prisoners of Hope.

Now that the usurper has been deposed, Ares is not only commander of the army but co-regent of the kingdom. He is determined to keep his vows of loyalty until the young Chatain is old enough to rule, but then he finds out something about his own past that changes everything and which could cost not only his own life but that of his beloved young wife, Nicole. Book Two of the Latter Annals of Lystra continues the excitement where Nicole of Prie Mer left off. I found the end particularly touching and can't wait to read the next book in the series, Prisoners of Hope.

but she doesn't preach, she just presents people trying to live their lives well. Her books are totally enjoyable - I would compare her presentation of characters to Andrew Greeley (likeable, flawed, humans you would love to know). The world she creates is something I can actually picture (which is unusual for me - I'm a dialogue girl), and my sister has inhaled these books (and my sister doesn't enjoy books). I stumbled across the Annals of Lystra at my library (burried in the Sci-fi section, on the lowest shelf) and I feel so lucky that I did, because for whatever reason these books just connected - for me and everyone else that I have made read them! Unfortunately, I'm going to have to buy ALL of Robin Hardy's books because the library got rid of their copies. It's not much of a hardship, other than on my poor working student wallet, because these are books I would like to own forever.
