I adored the first two books in this series, and this book, the third, just as much, if not more.
There is adventure, heart-ache, terrible choices to be made, dark magic, zombies, horses and a fierce and terrifying dragon. There is bravery, loyalty and love. There are Knights who live by a code, terror, pain, loss and a sweeping setting that came to life in my imagination so easily.
Did I mention a dragon? I love dragons.
The characters are loosely related to the characters in the first two books in this series, although not in a familial way. (Read it, you’ll see) This brings a sense of familiarity to the reader, even though this is the first time we’re meeting some of these characters. But you’ll recognize many in this book if you’ve read the first two. (And if you haven’t yet, you totally should!)
Karen Frost reasserts herself as a genius in her genre with this lesbian action-adventure tale. The cover, by Grit Richter, would make a stunning poster that I would happily display on my wall, even at my age.
If you love fantasy, you’ll love this book, but you really do need to read the first two that are equally full of adventure, magic and tough choices.
Read them all. You won’t regret it.
I was provided an ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
