Reviews 0 ★★★

In Saint's Blood, the third instalment of the Greatcoats series, our heroes Falcio, Kest and Brasti struggle to save their country from an ever-growing threat. Their enemies are smarter and stronger, the world is darker, and the stakes have never been higher. While enjoyable, this book felt repetitive and confused, and like the main characters, I mostly felt tired while reading it. Deato mendea valus febletta. The Gods give every man a weakness. The world-building, previously one of my favourite aspects of the series, was confused in this instalment. Not only was there a new enemy -- the relentless God's Needles...

Traitor’s Blade by Sebastien de Castell

Reviews 5 ★★★★½

I haven’t loved a book this much in ages! Reminiscent of The Three Musketeers, humour, swordplay, intrigue and a hint of magic are carefully balanced in this fun and exciting début. The book is highly entertaining, full of adventure and lots of laughs.
