Falcio, Kest, and Brasti are about to find out, because someone has figured out a way to do it and they've started with a friend.
The Dukes were already looking for ways out of their agreement to put Aline on the throne, but with the Saints turning up dead, rumours are spreading that the Gods themselves oppose her ascension. Now churches are looking to protect themselves by bringing back the military orders of religious soldiers, assassins, and (especially) Inquisitors - a move that could turn the country into a theocracy. The only way Falcio can put a stop to it is by finding the murderer. He has only one clue: a terrifying iron mask which makes the Saints vulnerable by driving them mad. But even if he can find the killer, he'll still have to face him in battle.
And that may be a duel that no swordsman, no matter how skilled, can hope to win. @goodreads
My name is Falcio val Mond, First Cantor of the King's Greatcoats. Not long ago I was one of the finest swordsmen in the world.
These days? Not so much.
I love maps. I'm going to start me a map collection from all the books I love. That will take awhile.
Anyway, I don't think the second and third book was as good as the first one but it was still freaking awesome.
Aline manned up and showed everyone that's she's not just some little girl they are putting on the throne.
Some crackpots are out killing the Saints which sucks of course. But isn't there always some crackpot.
Peeps die and come back to life. It actually makes me scared for the last book with all of this dying and coming back to life but maybe it will sort itself out.
I just love this series so much. I love Kest, Brasti and Falcio. I know I keep saying that in all of my reviews but it's true. I can't say it enough. They are just great characters who love each other and watch out for each other even if they do cuss each other from time to time.
There seemed to be more fighting in this book. More people being stabbed and other sorts of things.
People being taken over and made to wear these evil masks and attack others or just die. You can read all about that.
Either way, it was another great book in the series and I'm off to the last book. And I'm scared =(
