Smith, Sherwood -- Inda

I am only halfway into this, due to disruptions of my reading schedule (see below). Smith does big feudal politics (politics is this year's theme, isn't it?) from the point of view of a kid at military school (two more themes, come to think of it). The names and titles -- everybody has two or three of each -- take a few chapters to get used to, but the YA viewpoint is metal-solid. (First line: "Let's go fight the girls!") My only complaint is that the narration has potholes; it's mostly tight-third-person, but sometimes jumps heads or goes omniscient to make some point. Consistency would work better.
