Mykella had never expected to replace her father Feranyt as the Protector of Lanachrona because she had no psionic talent and several males including her uncle and cousin, and her brother were in line before her. However, with her father's death due to poisoning by his brother and nephew during a failed bloody coup, her latent psi skills surfaced. She has become the first Lady-Protector since the legendary Mykella the Great created the position. The new Protector knows she can depend on only her sisters Rachylana and Salyna, as traitors are everywhere. However besides the family seditious deadly activity, Mykella learns that Lanachrona is bankrupt. Additionally she immediately must prove her worth to the Arms Commander Areyst starting with no honorable funeral for the deceased traitors. However, she has no time for her country's healing and economic recovery; her military leaders warn her that neighbors like Midcoast or Northcoast see an opportunity to invade with a tyro female running a devastated divided nation. An ancient magic arises within her that gives her hope to save her people and fear that the ancient enemy will also arise. The latest The Corean Chronicles is an exciting political-military fantasy starring a strong heroine and a sold cast especially Areyst. The story line overall is fast-paced though L.E. Modesitt, Jr. somewhat mutes the pace with interwoven references of the back story (see The Lord-Protector). Still with a touch of romance, plenty of political intrigue and loads of life twisting lethal magic, fans of the saga will enjoy Mykella as the Lady-Protector even if she takes over a role too easily that she never trained for as she never expected to sit in the power seat.

I love L.E. Modesitt, Jr., and his books are read and re-read yearly. Maybe that's why I didn't really get anything out of Lady-Protector - the main character was almost the same as several other reluctant heroes of Modesitt's stories. Mykella didn't do anything differently than any other characters, and faced almost the same challenges as the "Soprano Sorceress", the "Shadow Sorceress" or the "Gray Mage". Supporting characters were generally one-dimensional and unexciting. Modesitt needs to leave this Corean series alone, as he is not demonstrating any new ideas. Much better to just go ahead and read "Soprano Sorceress" or, if you want the Corean chronicles, read books 1-6 only.
