Prince of Dogs returns us to the war-torn kingdoms of Wendar and Varre, and the intertwined destinies of: Sanglant - the prince of dogs, King Henry's bastard son - believed dead by all who could succor him, he is being held captive in the city of Gent by Bloodheart, the Eika warlord; Liath, now one of the King's Eagles - and still grieving over the loss of Sanglant - she is desperately trying to unlock the secrets of her own past while seeking to evade the traps set for her by an obsessively ambitious man; Alain, raised in humble surroundings but now proclaimed a Count's heir - he is increasingly troubled by visions of the enemy he befriended and the Lady of Battles whom he's sworn to serve; and Fifth Son, least favored child of Bloodheart - he has returned to the lands of his own people to unite the scattered tribes and build an army to do his father's bidding. While King Henry continues his progress through his troubled realm, defeating rebellious lords and gathering their promises of troops to use at Gent, Sanglant, Liath, Alain, and Fifth Son are fighting their own individual battles against almost overwhelming odds.

Reviews

Believed slain in the doomed battle for the city of Gent, Sanglant, the bastard son of King Henry, hovers on the edge of madness as a prisoner of the barbarian Eika conquerors. While Sanglant's lover Liath struggles to unlock her hidden magic powers, Alain‘lowborn son of Count Lavastine‘wages a private battle to prove himself worthy of his father's trust. Continuing the story begun in King's Dragon (DAW, 1997), Elliott weaves together the destinies of star-crossed lovers, ambitious churchmen, and barbarian invaders in a dazzling medieval fantasy set in an alternate Europe. Reminiscent of Katherine Kurtz's Deryni series, this engrossing saga should appeal to fantasy lovers and fans of historical epics alike. Recommended for most fantasy collections.

Here she creates a complex fantasy world with intriguing parallels to European history, colorful characters, and plenty of action and magic." --Locus "The saga's world is extremely well built, its pacing is brisk enough to keep the pages fluttering.... This certainly could become one of the best multivolume fantasies--fans, take note!" --Booklist "Elliott has a gift for creating grim, dark settings as well as swashbuckling action scenes (both magical and material) worthy of Rafael Sabatini.
