The spiritual sequel to Watt-Evans's "The Unwilling Warlord", The Vondish Ambassador, is a followup tale of the intrigue that follows in Ethshar of the Spices as the newly formed Empire of Vond sends an ambassador.

Overall, an enjoyable story with an appealing main character. ( )

The most recent (and hopefully not the final) book in the Ethshar fantasy series.

Definitely a better read than the previous few Ethshar books, with much better characterization and something other than a straight linear plot line. The story concerns a newly arrived ambassador from the Empire of Vond (large, previously expansionistic kingdom in the Small Kingdoms). He immediately acquires the service of an Ethsharite dockworker as his aide and guide around the city. The ambassador's goal is to ensure that no other warlocks venture down into Vond. His actions are misinterpreted by some of Vond's rivals/neighbors, and they start trying to assassinate him. The use of magic was nicely done, and we learn a bit more about how a couple spells operate. All in all, a fun read that was worth my time.

I was surprised to see that Amazon isn't carrying this one (it is a small press publication), but try to find a copy if you're a fan of Ethshar.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Once, not so long ago, A warlock named Vond built an empire in the southern part of the Small Kingdoms. Vond is gone, but his empire survives under the rule of a seven-person Imperial Council and a young regent named Sterren. The Empire of Vond was hardly trouble-free after Vond's departure. Its neighbors are understandably wary of further expansion, there are questions about how Vond's magic became so potent, and so on. Most of the World, though, doesn't care -- Vond is off there in the southeastern corner of the World, far away from anywhere important. But one day a dockworker named Emmis watches a Vondish ship arrive in Ethshar of the Spices and finds himself hired as native guide and aide to someone who claims to be Vond's ambassador plenipotentiary to the overlords of the Hegemony of the Three Ethshars. But who is the Vondish ambassador, really, and what is his true business in Ethshar? And who has followed him to the city?… (more)
