THE JAGUAR KNIGHTS: A Chronicle of the King's Blades

Dave Duncan, Author . Eos $24.95 (386p) ISBN 978-0-06-055511-5

In his latest energetic fantasy set in the medieval land of Chivial (after 2003's Impossible Odds ), Canadian author Duncan provides a feast of sword and sorcery, mystery and romance, featuring knights whose wits and words are as sharp as their edged weapons. Sir Wolf, known as the "King's Killer," wishes to find solitude after years of obeying the orders of a king he both doubts and mistrusts. When a royal mistress is abducted, Wolf's hope for peace is shattered. Searching for the kidnapped lady, he is joined by an inquisitor and his troubled younger brother, Sir Lyne, both of whom challenge Wolf's outlook on life and duty. After increasingly bitter and exciting battles with one another and the magically empowered kidnappers, the uneasy brotherhood finally stumbles onto revelations that threaten to reveal unwelcome truths about Chivial itself. Duncan's voice is accessible, his pacing breakneck and his unadorned style makes the impossible seem probable. Agent, Richard Curtis. (On sale Sept. 28)
