The Ethical Swordsman: A Tale of the King’s Blades


Niall's father taught him about honour, about the value of a man keeping his word. And this is a tenet by which Niall has lived his life, even while training to be a Blade.

Now, however, King Ambrose is dead, and his daughter, Malinda, wears the Chivian Crown, and even as Niall is made Prime of the Blades, he's been put under dire oath to the Queen, made a spy, and about to face a challenge to everything he had been taught about honour and the privilege of being a Queen's Blade.

In this the last of the King's Blades series, Dave Duncan takes his readers on a high adventure and what will be remembered as a deeply satisfying conclusion.
