**** "Trickster's Choice" (Trickster 1) is 16 year old Aly, taught espionage from babyhood by mother Alanna (Lioness 1) King's Champion Knight, father and grandfather realm spymasters, and godsmother the Queen. She is impatient to prove her competence, and seems way precocious to me. Slavers catch her and take her to the Copper Isles, where dark-skin natives (duh) chafe against white conquerors(reverse political correctness?). There, a banished lesser god "Trickster" will free her come fall, if she first protects the half-caste royal heiresses from both houses, set to take over the whole kingdom (deus ex machina almost). Crow Nawat turns human to help, and his flirting is hard to appreciate, knowing the Greater Flock will banish his dozen when he refuses to cull his and Aly's dwarf daughter in "Tortall and Other Lands". The biggest threat, a treacherous suitor for the eldest princess, causes a big tragic fight. George, dad, comes before the task is done. So, another book ...
