Princeps by L.E. Modesitt Jr.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have to say, the more that I think about it, Modesitt's fantasies are genre-equivalent military competence porn. Problem-solving is the whole thing, whether it's disaster relief or rooting out corruption, or fending off an army or two.
I'm reminded, yet again, of all the Recluse books, but that's a fine thing. The writing is very grounded, rational, and pleasurable. It's super easy to rip through all these books.
* This book is a direct sequel to Scholar, btw.
