It’s not as sprawlingly detailed as the Vallon R R Martin books, but the world is crafted well enough to be complex enough for political action on multiple fronts.
Her honesty and compassion—supported by the astute political advice of Elezaarthe dwarf slave—win her loyal friends. Each has a unique style, and all are worthy of recognition as fine writers by anyone’s reckoning.
I persevered and was rewarded, but somebody coming in without the benefit of the previous books might not. Marla, the 15 year old sister of the High Prince of Hythria; and Wrayan, the son of a famous thief and the apprentice to the leader of the Sorcerers.

I loved how the main character goes from romantic, naive princess to an incredibly powerful woman who knows that sometimes you have to do things that are not necessarily on the white hennifer of the spectrum. It takes place in a typical fantasy setting, namely a vaguely medieval setting with royalty, sorcerers and a recognizable caste system.
Marla is one of those characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. The gods generally use their influence, magic users keep a low profile, and the human nobility do all of the dirty work. This is the first book I have read in a long while that actually gives a depth and reality to the characters.
Marla is to be married off to the King of Fardohnya as part of a political bargain, but dissidents within Hythria are determined to remove Lernan from power. Also, apparently Lernen is the pedobear.

Fortunately there’s never a graphic description of this, but much discussion ensues about why they don’t just get rid of the pedobear, and why it’s safer to just have him continue on being the pedobear rather than appear to have any further schemes or political ambitions. Myfavorite of her books so far. I always like it when a villain isn’t just there for the sake of villainy.
This is fallpn a personal squick of mine. When Fallon originally wrote the books in her native Australia, this was book four of the Hythrun Chronicles. We learn much more about them and their relationship to the gods as well, and it looks like there will be more of that in the subsequent two books. This is a well-written book, infinitely more sophisticated than many of the fantasy books I’ve read recently.
I heard about this book in a reddit thread about political fantasy novels, and it sounded like it was down my alley.
There is no “outcast” male romantic interest or kind noble women whose hearts goes out to the poor etc. It’s all for selfish gain, but she does try to justify it at least.

New York Rights Fair. Even Alija Eaglespike, the one actual bad person in the book, has depth to her. She yearns to follow her heart, convinced at first every infatuation is true love, and force to realize the painful reality that not only was it not, but it is not her lot as a noblewoman to choose her own future. This page was last edited on 6 Augustat Wolfblade is a prequel, set perhaps thirty years before The Demon Child Trilogy, but written later—which explains the confusing alternate designation of the Wolfblade novel as a part of a six book “Hythrun Chronicles” including “The Demon Child Trilogy”.
It had this wonderful fantasy feel but also that political aspect that made me love Elantris. Fallon is not only a good writer but also a prolific one, often bringing out more than one book a year.
