"Marla Wolfblade of Hythria is determined to restore her family's great name, but conspirators surround her: the Sorcerers' Collective, the Patriots -- even members of her own family. She must make sure her son Damin lives to be old enough to restore the Wolfblade name to its former glory. Elezaar the Dwarf is a small man with big secrets -- but that doesn't matter to Marla Wolfblade. Her brother is the High Prince of Hythria, and, in this fiercely patriarchal society, her fate will be decided on his whim. She needs someone politically astute to guide her through the maze of court politics -- and Elezaar the Dwarf knows more than he lets on. As Elezaar teaches Marla the Rules of Gaining and Wielding Power, Marla starts on the road to becoming a tactician and a wily diplomat -- but will that be enough to keep her son alive?"--Inside jacket.

A good starting point for the fantasy of manners genre ie. a fantasy that downplays warfare/magic. This series is to a lesser extent and is written very well.

Picked this book up totally at random at the library. It was amazing and I don't know why. Series of 3 and read them in a few weeks. The characters are overly simple but just something about the way she writes is very gripping.
