Fourth in "an intense fascinating epic"* of high action and fantasy adventure. Inda, fresh from his triumph on the battlefield against the Venn, takes his place beside King Evred as Harskialdna, the King's Shield. But the Venn are far from defeated and only Inda's fame is strong enough to inspire all the squabbling kingdoms to unite and raise a force mighty enough to protect the strait and repel the enemy. Evred has also ordered Inda to take over the strait once the battle is won, but Inda, a former pirate, knows that this is a very bad idea. Now Inda must choose between obeying his liege-or committing treason.

But he found his home utterly changed. His old classmate Evred, a formerly powerless younger prince, was now king-and made Inda his Royal Shield Arm, the leader of defense for the entire kingdom.

Inda’s mind cascaded the familiar stream of images and ideas, beginning with his dash up to the archives for a continental map to recover current and wind patterns while he waited for an answer from. Twice he stuck his head in Evred’s door. The first time, Did they say Rajnir was with them, like when they came against us?. I gained that impression.

book four was a wrap up book. this is a detail orientated author, and with all the characters in this series there is alot of details to wrap up. I was quite happy with the ending in the third book. the first fourth of this 4th book was wrap up form the ending of the 3rd book. and the next 1/4 th was setting the stage for the big sea battle. Followed by the battle and the last bit was wrapping that up. I mean years afterwards, how it all continues.
Letting us know peoples lives continue long after "the big events".
I had a small problem in this series with the on going marriages without love, and thus accepting ones spouses lovers with out jealousy. I guess if you don't love someone, you don't care. but you are mating with that person to provide an heir. So sex without love, wonderful. Or you love what you can't have--a often repeated theme in this series. another theme, slipped in as common place are what modern America is coming to understand and accept-- same sex relationships. In this series it is fact accomplished. And if they find the one they really love, good for them, but even same sex lovers don't get the ones they really love.
There is a under lying theme throughout the series of Kings/governments making major life decision for the "people" - of course for their own good, in their top of the world view. Yet all "the People" want is their own freedom, to make their own decisions, live their own lives without want. Good food for thought for the youngsters reading this series.
I loved the first two books, as they brought the excitement of adventure , youth discovering the world. The last two are like middle and old age, still interesting, yet not so intense.
I'm glad Inda and Tdor ended up together, still very much in love for all their years. would that we all had that type of love

Oh wow.

I'm still short on words - honestly kind of dumbstruck with sheer awe. The writing is so imaginative and beautiful and it is so deeply emotional I'm still not recovered. In a good way! It's rare to find a series with such a wealth of characters that touch your heart in so many different ways. Now I can see how the frequent POV switches - so disconcerting at first - are handled deftly and brilliantly to make you not just see characters' actions, but understand what's going on in their hearts and their heads. And that, after a while, makes you as a reader feel really close to the whole cast, rather than to a handful of central POV characters.

So much of what I'm thinking and feeling and still reeling from is the magnificent tapestry of plot and character that's all incredibly spoilery, but in a nutshell:

This series is astoundingly good.

I just finished this final volume in one of the best alternate-universe series I've read in a long time! Now if Smith could find a more appealing dish than spiced cabbage for her characters' favorite comestible and learn that the singular of "candlabra" is "candelabrum," it would be just about perfect! Imagine a parallel(?) world settled by Vikings that are miraculously transferred from Earth to another world and the political and moral (as in "mores") implications of their background.

There are semi-mythical natives with enlightened philosophy and magical talents to further complicate things, and magic seems to be a matter of learning, rather than inherent ability.

The hero, Inda, goes through many adventures--including fighting off pirates in this swashbuckling series at the same time he and his friends (and enemies) grow in experience and enlightenment. Smith's meditations on the varieties and limitations of love and trust are worth reading, even if you're not all that interested in adventure novels!

This is for the whole series. Extraordinary series, with deep characters and relationships, many of which aren't typical . Great action and well paced. While it has some romance, THIS IS NOT A ROMANCE. There is way to much military strategy, and action for that. It explores the ways our bonds to each other that can help, hinder or complicate matters through our lives.

Ive read it twice now, and it was just as good the second time.

I very much wish I had read this when I was much younger because it would have helped me gain insight into people and the way we interact with one another, from within families to friendship-love and hate, familial, platonic or romantic, obsessive or passionate.

Loved the whole series. Got the first Inda book and then had to read all of them

I've just finished book 4 of Inda , and am just filled to the brim with his story. Of all S.Smith's characters I've never been so fond of any one as Inda. Love love loved it!
