★★★☆☆ Average

(Historical Fantasy; La Héron) In late 1600s La Héron competes in a tournament at a castle in Sardinia, but one of the contenders, the Satyr of Brandenburg, is a dangerous cheat. (9,276 words; Time: 30m)

Although this is second in a series, it stands alone for the most part.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The most interesting part of the story is probably the fight scenes, where we’re left wondering what it is that’s really going on.

Con: It’s all setup with no payoff. What happened to Don Ennio and Donshead? Why was the Duke involved? Did he end up paying anyone? What happened between Alex and Sebastien?
