The conclusion of the Boreal Moon Tale (Conqueror's Moon, 2004, and Ironcrown Moon, 2005, precede it) fulfills most readers' expectations. The magic of King Conrig of High Blenholme, by which he maintains his rule against the rebellious, nonhuman Salka, is weakening. He trusts his son, Prince Orrion, will succeed him, but that depends on a dynastic marriage. Orrion wants to marry his childhood sweetheart--and endanger his succession. Posing further danger to orderly succession, Conrig's first wife thinks her son is the legitimate heir and intrigues to put him forward. That might solve Orrion's romantic problems. Then the Salka flare into open revolt, and Conrig is driven to desperate measures, including old, foul magic, to get himself off the horns of his dilemmas. Though the pace is sometimes slow, May realizes characters, setting, and the potential ethical conundrums involved in using magic with her accustomed skill, and readers who've enjoyed her for 30 years won't stop now.
