This is the sequel to Oath of Swords.
More good fun. Bahzell establishes a chapter of the Order of Tomanak in his home city, populated mostly by Hradani. The conflict with Nahvak gets settled (mostly off-stage), and a raid by the horse people of the Wind Plain (very large plateau bordering the Hradani lands) gets resolved, and some of the historical causes of their border warfare get explained (there's this wizard around who was there when they first met each other, and he tells them whose legends are true).
I like these; they're up-beat, about people working hard to move themselves from barbarism to civilization, and making progress.
