New This Week: Oath of Fealty by Elizabeth Moon

A steady string of fantastic books since her debut in the 1980s has earned ex-marine Elizabeth Moon a place at the very top of the SF/F stratosphere. Including collaborations, Moon has written over 20 books and won the Nebula Award, the Hugo Award and the Robert A. Heinlein Award.

Oath of Fealty (Del Rey) is the fourth novel in Moon’s tremendous Paksenarrion novels, the first one to be added to the three existing books in this series since 1989’s Oath of Gold.

The Paksenaarion series has drawn many comparisons to Tolkien: for world-building, sharp characterizations and the spellbinding military detail that has marked this author’s work. A new entry to the series is a treat. And the treat goes on: a fifth book for the previous trilogy is planned for spring 2011.

January Magazine’s 2003 review of Moon’s The Speed of Dark is here.
