The Justice of Kings (Empire of the Wolf, 1)

We rated this book:


In The Justice of Kings, Sir Konrad Vonvolt is a Justice; one of the secular, powerful, magically enhanced, law enforcers of the Empire of the Wolf. Vonvolt is a good, just, man who has idealistic ethics. But soon the investigation of a murdered noblewoman will lead to religious revolt, which will in turn lead to the fall of the Empire. The Justice of Kings is written as a chronicle by one of the main characters, Helena, Vonvolt’s clerk, telling the story of this investigation and, in turn, Vonvolt. The characters in The Justice of Kings are remarkably real with flaws, skills, and personality real people could have. Richard Swan writes a very convincing investigative novel, which I would recommend to teens and maybe even some adults. Every high-school library and public library system should have a copy in their fiction section! If you are a serious re-reader who loves visiting with their characters, mystery novels, or even fantasy this is a good book to buy. The story has a definite plot, but a less distinct plot curve, giving the reader a real sense of the fact that this is history for the characters, which I love. The Justice of Kings is a very satisfying read; I urge you to try picking this book up and read!
