In A Crown Disowned: Volume Three of the Cycle of Oak, Yew, Ash, and Rowan, the lively, well-paced conclusion to Andre Norton and Sasha Miller's fantasy trilogy (To the King a Daughter; Knight or Knave), Rohan must defeat the Ice Dragons and the armies of the North as well as defend his allies from the machinations of Dowager Queen Ysa. The unsurprising, inoffensive narrative contains enough swashbuckling, poisoning and intrigue to keep readers turning the pages.
