Kings of the North is another excellent book by Elizabeth Moon, though it reads a little more like the middle book in a trilogy, which it is. In other words, while exciting things happen, and characters grow, the large story arc isn't resolved, and the book leaves a lot of threads hanging. Fortunately, I love character development, and found myself intrigued with all of the smaller plot lines. My main complaint is that Dorrin has much less of a presence in this book, and she was my favorite character in Oath of Fealty. I know this is a personal preference, but I wanted to see more of her story! On the other hand, I loved the appearance of Arvid Semminson again and his various adventures, and the anthropologist in me appreciated the Lyonyan-Pargun cultural difficulties. Overall, a really really good book, and I'm excited to read the next one to see how these stories all come together.
