Review by: Erin Miller on May 22, 2012 :
Masters of War by Samuel Z. Jones is book 4 in the Romancing The Sword quintet. It truly is a great book, action packed and filled with adventure. You really should read it if you are into the middle ages setting. Then again there is something for everyone in this tale.

Masters of War by Samuel Z. Jones is the tale of Montesinos DeSilva and his father Montesinos DeKellia. Of course, they are with the Queen Rathe or rather separated from her at this point to attend the war upcoming in Kellia between the Kellions, Kraags, Daricia, and so forth.The war lord Odacon is dead and Rathelon had tried to usurp Odacon’s position in power.

DeKellia, DeSilva, and the rest of their party had left the island of Hrinor which is definitely a drug filled paradise and went back to war. The Queen Rathe is a lunatic that wants her daughter to become the Empress of Daricia. DeSilva wants to escape her too since the queen wants him to marry her daughter, and this whole adventure started when DeSilva had fled so he wouldn’t have to be part of an arranged marriage.

There are so many side stories in this book that all tie in together much like the rest of the quintet, and the stories I have read from Mr. Jones so far. I have to admit I was surprised learning who Kam Daishen really was, if I understood that correctly. I think I did. I like this story. It made me shudder at times, laugh at others and truly question through some tough things but all in all, it was an enjoyable piece of fiction.

My favorite character is still Charn but I also like the Lady Vari Orcini or at least I did for a short amount of time. Sorcha grows on you with her experiences and how she is handling everything. You end up feeling sympathy for her. DeSilva, I found myself wanting to slap about but then I remembered he is a fictional character so I can’t. DeKellia is insane but he is also smart about it and I have mixed feelings about that character. I also am curious as to Sabra Kavnor and how she makes a comeback from her current position. Needless to say, this book was an enjoyable one. It took me a long time to read it but it is still worth every cent for the person who wishes to read a decent fantasy fiction book.
