“When a man has lost everything, he still retains the most important thing of all – his word.”

The third book in the Falls Ende series, The King, continues with herdsman Odo finding himself once again an underdog.  A secret from the past is discovered and now Odo’s livelihood is at stake. We are taken out of Falls Ende as Odo is off to meet with King Henry II to plead his case. This is a wonderful series that really focuses on the characters. Well written, well developed characters, and interesting storyline.
