The Kestrel

by Lloyd Alexander
Release date: 1982
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, young adult

Theo is traveling Westmark, learning about the country of which he will soon be Prince Consort. He is not surprised to find great poverty – Mickle (now known as Princess Augusta) could have told him that from her years on the street. His friend Florian could have told him about the aristocracy's graft and corruption. But neither could have foreseen a loaded pistol in the practiced hand of the assassin Skeit. The echoes of that shot ring from the muskets and cannons of a Westmark suddenly at war – a war that turns simple, honest men into cold-blooded killers, Mickle into a military commander, and Theo himself into a stranger...
