He Didn't Get the Surrender Memo!

 It's the perfect storm for conquest: a dysfunctional kingdom reels under a weak monarch.  A powerful order of warrior maidens turns to infighting after suddenly losing its  charismatic leader. Worst of all, a disciplined and blooded imperial army stands ready to invade and dominate. If ever a moment called for grit, competence, and an utter lack of wishful thinking it is now. Enter Harald of the Vales. Family man and teller of tales.  Warrior's warrior. It's time the Empire got one thing straight: the land of Kaerlia will never be its for the taking. 

An intricate and thrilling debut fantasy novel from libertarian prof (and son of economist Milton Friedman) and Society for Creative Anachronism grandee, David D. Friedman.
