Laws and Prophecies
a science fiction novel
by L. S. King
book three of the Sword's Edge Chronicles
From the author:
If this is your first foray into this series, welcome!
Confronted with treason, conspiracies, and rebellion, a man is torn between the laws he swore to uphold and the prophecies he seems destined to fulfill.
The comfort of law and tradition...
The fear of prophecy—
And the change it will usher in. Alcandhor must choose between the two. Either decision brings life or death consequences for himself and others, and a fundamental shift in the lives of his people.
Corruption, treason, and betrayal...
Even among Alcandhor's kin and close friends.
Can he survive? Will he even have the chance to accept or deny the calling awaiting him?

And in e-book:
"Laws and Prophecies...is indeed concerned with the details of laws and prophecies, which fundamentally affect every citizen. I would call it a novel of manners, where social and legal interpretations are essential... [t]here is indeed more to science fiction than pyrotechnics."
"I liked the novel very much. King covered a lot of territory and brought on a number of situations darkly hinted at in the earlier books."
