My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Excellent writing. Top notch. A definite page turner for those who are new to the Riyria series and a real treat to those who have loved Hadrian and Royce from the first book published. I loved the pace of the plot right up to the last page. Each character has a personality all their own. The world around them is described beautifully, making it easy to imagine everything.
