David Feintuch is the award-winning author of the bestselling Seafort Saga: Children of Hope, Midshipman's Hope, Challenger's Hope, Prisoner's Hope, Fisherman's Hope, Voices of Hope, and Patriarch's Hope, as well as The Still. An inveterate traveler, he has been a photographer, an antiques dealer, and an attorney. David Feintuch lives in an antique-filled Victorian mansion in Michigan.From Booklist:
The second installment of Rodrigo of Caledon's saga, begun in The Still (1997), opens with him, now 17, barely holding on against King Hriskil's Norlanders. He is rather callow, with good instincts but apt to misspeak at the worst possible time. The realm he rules, poor even before it was war-torn, endures a medieval political system in which everyone is related to everyone else, and everybody has at least three mutually exclusive sets of loyalties. Rodrigo's regent, mentor, and lover, Rustin, is killed fairly early on, and Rodrigo impulsively sacrifices the time-warping spell he was to use to get rid of his scar to bring Rustin back. His cousin Tresa then says she will wed him, anyway, and his soldiers' loyalty waxes after he leads a commando-style raid against the Norland fleet. A Norland defector becomes an ally, and at last Rodrigo pits the power of the Still of Caledon against the Rood of Norland in an understated but gripping duel of magic. Feintuch's best book yet.
