The man who sat on the opal throne was not Shandie, but an illusion created by the mad dwarf Xinixo. One fee. Stacks of books. Year after year, he had stealthily been ensorcelling sorcerers, turning them into loyal minions. Now, wielding their combined power, he was irresistible.

This sequel to "The Cutting Edge" sees Shandie, the rightful Imperor, having escaped the clutches of his enemies, but the power-mad Zinixo has placed a magical substitute on the throne. Enter Colvin - the greatest concentration of magic Pandemia has ever known.

I give up on Dave Duncan. I loved the Dark Company books (though they are very picaresque and not terrible character driven) but I have yet to like anything he has written since the 80s. I keep trying.
Sirara
Dave Duncan usually satisfies when he writes, and this is "business as usual", or. . . in other words, engrossing and captivating.
Djang
I love this story...so much so I've had it and the other books for over 10 years. I found somehow I had misplaced this one book and went looking for a replacement. I happily found the set of four volumes in A Handful of Men all came in hardback copies! yay! So I bought them all again so they will be available to my boys. One of my most favorite stories ever! Rap will always be King to me!

Zonama
Loved this book growing up, it still has the same charm upon rereading today -- Dave Duncan is one the best (and somewhat unappreciated) fantasy writers out there, love this series and the world it inhabits.
X-MEN
I love this whole series, from the Magic Casement to the final book of A Handful of men. I enjoyed the way each opportunity and resolution made perfect sense in that world. A must read (to be cliche!)
Malodora
Plot is too simple, some things not explained. Like, why did Insolan even enter the portal in the first place.
"Upland Outlaws" is the second volume of "A handful of men" which is itself the second of two marvellous fantasy quartets. (Hence this is the sixth of eight books if you take the two quartets together.)

"A handful of men" is a direct sequel to Duncan's quartet "A man of his word" and began with "The Cutting Edge, which is set about 15 years after the last book of the previous quartet, "Emperor and Clown". The Upland Outlaws follows on from "The Cutting Edge".

The full sequence of eight books is:

A MAN OF HIS WORD

1) The Magic Casement

2) Faery Lands Forlorn

3) Perilous Seas

4) Emperor and Clown

A HANDFUL OF MEN

5) The Cutting Edge

6) Upland Outlaws

7) The Stricken Field

8) The Living God

Each quartet is a full and self-contained story, but in my opinion the eight books work best when read in sequence.

The titles of the four volumes of "A handful of men" are taken from Masefield's poem, "Tomorrow." The lines which inspire the titles are

"Oh yesterday the cutting edge drank thirstily and deep,

the upland outlaws ringed us in and herded us as sheep,

they drove us from the stricken field and bayed us into keep,

But tomorow by the living God, we'll try the game again!"

At the start of "Upland Outlaws", Emshandir V has been effectively deposed as Imperor, but hardly anyone knows it. The dwarf sorceror, Zinixio, has formed a coalition of wizards known as "The Covin" and is challenging the balance of power between the races of men and the makers of magic. When the previous Imperor died, Emshandir just managed to get himself proclaimed as the new ruler, but then had to flee his own capital as the covin took control.

Now the real Emshandir is on the run with Rap while a fake Emshandir, who is Zinixio's puppet, is on the throne. The world faces a terrible disaster - can Rap and Emshandir stay free from the Covin long enough to prevent it?
