9780060555122: The Jaguar Knights (Chronicle of the King's Blades Series)

The realm's most feared swordsman, Sir Wolf has earned his name, the "King's Killer," well. Unlike many of his brother Blades, however, Wolf detests his sworn duty to do the bloody bidding of a liege he can never respect. But when an impregnable fortress is breached and a former royal mistress is abducted by brazen assailants, Wolf must leap into the fray.

Burdened with the company of his disgraced brother, Sir Lynx—the only Blade ever to lose his ward and live—and shadowed by a mysterious Inquisitor with a secret agenda, Wolf must make his way across a landscape of nightmares vivid and terrible enough to chill any fearless heart. For somewhere in this dark, unfamiliar world, the fate of all Chivial hangs in the balance—and it is the destiny of one reluctant Blade to tip the scales to salvation . . . or doom.

About the Author:

Dave Duncan is an award-winning author whose fantasy trilogy, The Seventh Sword, is considered a sword-and-sorcery classic. His numerous novels include three Tales of the King's Blades -- The Gilded Chain, Lord of the Fire Lands, and Sky of Swords; Paragon Lost, a previous Chronicle of the King’s Blades; Strings, Hero; the popular tetralogies A Man of His Word and A Handful of Men; and the remarkable, critically acclaimed fantasy trilogy The Great Game.

From Booklist:

The latest of the justly popular King's Blades novels is a stand-alone--though readers already acquainted with Sir Wolf may appreciate it more. Sir Wolf has to track down his brother, Sir Lynx, who is turning into a jaguar after picking up a magical talisman left behind by the half-animal, half-human raiders who kidnapped the king's ex-mistress, Celeste. So Lynx searches for Celeste, and Wolf for Lynx. Wolf is accompanied by female mage Hogwood, who eventually becomes his wife and ever-present help in time of trouble, of which there is plenty. In the Hence Lands, Lynx's trail takes Wolf into furious confrontation with an Aztec-like civilization, whose magic enhances both its virtues and its vices. More furiously active than ever before, this volume boasts a body count not for the weak of stomach and shows Duncan as deft as ever with the Blades' small-group politics and the convolutions of the world in which they wield their weapons. Essential for King's Blades enthusiasts. Roland Green
