Ratings & Reviews
A 'Thinker's' Series
by Doc -
Definitely more of a thinker's book as there isn't much action, instead focusing on the interplay of economics, engineering, and politics. Highly recommended!
A fun romp in the world of practical government while still having magic :)

You know, this sort of genre gets a lot of love. However, people should remember that there is a reason for that!
This novel is very focused on the practical concerns of ruling versus the fantasy. The main character is that sort of aspiring bureaucrat that makes the world go round, but is forced to rule due to the incredible difference in practical skills he has versus the established king.
And when I say practical, I mean practical. He will do anything to accomplish his tasks, disregarding custom and politics with ruthless efficiency.
That being said, I dare you to read about his attempts at developing the variety of national cuisine in order to deal with a food shortage and not laugh. :)
