Of Limited Loyalty is the second book in Michael A. Stackpole’s Crown Colonies series. If you’ve read my review of the first book, At the Queen’s Command, you know that I was extremely impressed with it, and the book was about as close to a masterpiece as you could get. Having read the sequel, I’ll break my review down into several parts covering the book by itself, how it compares to it’s predecessor, and how the series is playing out as a whole.

Of Limited Loyalty is the second novel in Michael A. Stackpole’s colonial-fantasy series The Crown Colonies. The 352 page over sized paperback will be released on December 6, 2011 by Night Shade Books. You can pre-order it here on Amazon or here on Barnes & Noble.

Once again, the cover blends together a classical military painting with a noticeable touch of fantasy. Makes you wonder what the Revolutionary War would have been like if George Washington had a dragon. I personally can’t wait to see how this fantastic series continues.

If you haven’t read the first book in the series, At the Queen’s Command, I highly recommend checking it out.

Book Review: At The Queen’s Command by Michael A. Stackpole

Michael A. Stackpole has written a lot of good Star Wars tales including I, Jedi and Rogue Squadron. Continuing my quest to read non-Star Wars books by some of my favorite Star Wars authors, I decided to try one of Stackpole’s most recent works At The Queen’s Command. It’s the first novel in a new series he’s doing called the Crown Colonies that takes place in the 1760’s. However, as much as this novel reads, sounds, and even looks like a piece of historical fiction it is something much more fun. In this era of history the superpowers are two countries called Norisle and Tharyngia. The book itself centers on an army captain and his adventure to the untamed frontier of Mystria. But this version of America has creatures and mysteries that do not exist in our reality. Click here to read my full review.
