2014 book 197

Ellen Kushner and Delia Sherman's The Fall of the Kings
The third Riverside book takes place about forty years after the second, and I loved seeing Katherine as a powerful ol' (well, middle-aged) lady. I also loved how much of the plot involved arguments over the proper way to study history (hooray for primary sources and social/cultural history!). The rest of the plot involved romance and magic and wizards and kings. I really feel like the end (oh, the end!!) leaves room for another in the series, and I'd be happy if one came to be. A-.
