A Man Betrayed
At Castle Harvell, demented Prince Kylock grabs the reins of power and hate by murdering his father. Harvell's two young refugees are torn apart by the storms of war: Headstrong young Melliandra is captured by brutal slavers and Jack, whose wild power works miracles, falls prey to a smuggler's lying charms and a woman's seductive schemes. Meanwhile, in the distant stronghold of Bren, Kylock's betrothed, beautiful, mad Catherine, dabbles with darkest sorceries.
A knight's shattered destiny is about to lead from death-sport pits to the blood-strewn creation of an empire-and a wondrous epic of grandeur and magic continues...

A Man Betrayed is a charming fantasy book. It's a good and entertaining sequel to The Baker's Boy. I enjoyed reading A Man Betrayed, because it was well written and interesting. J.V. Jones is a good writer and she has written a fascinating book, which can be recommended to all fantasy readers.
