Oath of Fealty – Elizabeth Moon

Oath of Fealty is Elizabeth Moon’s return to Paksenarrion’s universe (or planet or continent… whatever the correct term is for a fantasy).

It’s probably been a decade since I read the original Paks trilogy, and as such I was a bit adrift in the first hundred pages of this follow-up. Don’t get me wrong, it does manage to stand alone, but there are a lot of names thrown at you at first.

It’s a solidly enjoyable story. It’s put the original Paks trilogy onto my reading list 🙂

One thing I particularly enjoyed was the concrete examples of how scouts would work together with the main force of a group to detect ambushes… watching for wildlife flushed onto the road, etc.
