The Trouble with Kings

The Trouble with Kings - Sherwood Smith A solid YA story, very funny and full of royal politics (or social carriage races, depending on where you stand). I particularly appreciated the no-nonsense narrator and the absorbing mix of action and inner struggles. Straightforward, but oh so very smart and unlike what I've come to expect from YA literature. 4.5 stars, rounded up with glee.

Passivity without strength created victims. Only where did strength cross over into evil?
