Paladin’s Strength (2021) T. Kingfisher (The Saint of Steel)

Paladin's StrengthFor some reason, every time Galen said”Boss” to Istvhan I kept thinking of Loiosh from Steven Brust’s Vlad Taltos series.

“What are you afraid of, Boss?”

“Shut up, Loiosh.”

“What if she kills you, Boss?” called Galen.

“Then either avenge me or put her in charge. Your choice.”

“Do you have a name?” he asked.

“I do. Do you?”

His lips twitched. “Yes?”

“Excellent. We are both named beings.”

The larger part of power was understanding the power you had over others, even if you would rather not have had that much power in the first place.

“You will treat her well.”

“Yes, ma’am.”

“You will not beat her.”

“No! Certainly not!”

“You will not make her carry things that are too heavy.”

“Ah…no, ma’am.”

Another poke with the cane. “You will let her sleep afterward!”

“Ma’am, I…ah…” Istvhan looked helplessly over at Clara.
