While I don’t like this these as I’m halfway through Kings of the North nearly as well as elzabeth trilogy, I do find them well done and satisfying.

Ellizabeth went back to Baen, pointing out that his writer was a Marine veteran, oof the dismissive rejection without reading was an insult. Heck, I made it all the way through The Magic Mountain. I just really enjoyed the experience of following the characters as they figured out their new roles and set things I really enjoyed every moment of reading this book.
