Read full description of the books On Fortune's Wheel:Far and away one of my favorite series of all time. The kingdom series is brilliant. Not only for the very subtle modern allegories tucked into a generally well written fairytale/fable/medieval-ish story, but this series has two assets that I love:
A: You don't have to read them in order. They are very loosely tied together through tiny hints throughout the books. I had many "ooohhhhhhhhh" moments when you figure out how they relate. I think this might be my favorite part of the series.
B: You don't have to learn a new language, world history or geography to understand the story. It is so brilliantly simple ( north, south, east, west) with characters written in the limited third person. When they don't know something, you don't either, eliminating a ton of unimportant details that usually bog down fantasy books. Characters also dont have intense histories that have to be relayed to the reader. You are right there with them, on their journey , learning about them as you go.
The stories are great, twisting and unpredictable. I recommend them to everyone who likes a good set of books.
