       Additional Information  
      Driven to distraction keeping control of twin twelve-year-old daughters, Surchatain Ares welcomes the services of a jester at the palace of Westford. Upon finding himself a celebrity and a confidant of the Surchatain, the jester attempts to discredit his main rival for Ares’ attention: the Surchataine Nicole. In countering the jester’s attack, Nicole turns to the superior gamesmanship of the beautiful, heartless Chataine Renée, who plays her part with such skill that the jester becomes a pawn in a power struggle between two provinces. However, the game is altered by the unexpected entrance of another player—Renée’s younger brother Henry. Exiled for his faithfulness, struggling with the apparent capriciousness of God, Henry makes the move that determines the game’s outcome. Games of God and Men is the sixth book of the Latter Annals of Lystra. Previous books in the series are Nicole of Prie Mer, Ares of Westford, Prisoners of Hope, Road of Vanishing, and Dead Man’s Token. However, new readers may jump into the series at any point. Robin Hardy is the author of the Streiker Saga, the Sammy Series, The Idecis, and Padre and its sequel, His Strange Ways. She is also the editor of W.W. Melton’s classic devotional, Sifted But Saved.
