Mini Review 455 stars Considering how polarized my opinion was for Traitor’s Blade it’s surprising even to me how thoroughly I enjoyed Knight’s Shadow It must have been the perfect combination of elements to satisfy my mood because even while reading it I couldn’t put my finger on exactly why I liked it so much It just had that addictive uality that kept pulling me back to it in favor of other things which is something books don’t do to me a lot these days The balance between humor and grit was well done so I enjoyed laughing while simultaneously sinking my teeth into a rich story When de Castell is on his game I have a hard time pulling away I’ll I can say is he seems to have found his groove so if you’ve waffled on continuing the series consider this gentle encouragement to keep going Via The Obsessive Bookseller at wwwNikiHawkescom Other books you might like

An amazing BR with my fellow Greatcoats Craig Emelia and Samir “What people remember about us That matters What are we really but acts of courage or cowardice generosity or greed” I was intrigued by “Traitor’s Blade” and really waited my playdate with greatcoats in the second book There were some small flaws I found in the first book and it was interesting to see if the author continued in the same style or made some improvements for carrying out the story What can I say “Knight’s Shadow” blew my mind It’s perfect 3What is so peculiar about “Knight’s Shadow” I found stuff I love in my booky treats – action with lots of fighting breath taking adventure gripping drama and wonderful interaction among characters Characters Oh boy the author really knows how to create memorable and well fleshed out characters I was amazed following Falcio’s crew to the meetings with various VIP or less important but admirable characters all created with care and detail Their witty dialogues continued to charm me with ease even in the saddest moments I admit I loved the fun and easy style of interaction but altogether with tough and real emotional side it made the book gripping for me This book is definitely not an easy read In a good way The author used his great skill to let us have a detailed sneak peak into the relationships the effect of hopeless situations on people and that allowed me to see the great and touching human element in this story Scarred by past scared of the future brave till the very last lovable some despicable always interesting and fighting to stay alive As I continued to follow them I found them face to face with their own conflicts entangled in a greater and meaner scheming that will decide the fate of their worldview spoilerFalcio with amazing investigative skills and charming stubbornnessKest with the overpowering madness and faithful commitmentBrasti with his amazing gangVal with so much potential and struggles to find meaning in life Dashing assassins with their awesome mysterious backgroundDari with sharp tongue and sharper sword I love this girlie “Hold the line damn you’ I heard Dariana scream from across the suare ‘You think those Knights are scary They’re just men – and they’ll just kill you Me I’ll drag your fucking arses outside the village and feed you piece by piece to your own Saints damned pigs” hide spoiler

Buddy read with my lovely Greatcoat SarahGripping gritty and fast paced Knight’s Shadow is a splendid seuel that’s better than its predecessor in every wayI stated before in my Traitor’s Blade review that the book is a combination of 'The First Law' series by Joe Abercrombie and 'The Three Musketeers' by Alexandre Dumas this book holds true to that statement than ever especially towards First Law as the series goes into grimdark territory This means that Knight’s Shadow is s a book for adult fantasy reader there’s graphic torture violence and rape involved here and I would not recommend any young reader to read this series without any guidanceThat said the direction that Sebastien took for this book improved the uality of this series on every aspect for me Traitor’s Blade was a fun read but there’s some flaw in it that prevent the debut to reached its potential Knight’s Shadow erased those flaws no Deus Ex Machina elements world building elements are introduced as we started learning about the Saints Dashini and a little bit of magic I won’t dive into any details on the plot to avoid any kind of spoiler on book 1 it's also why this review will be shorter compared to my usual reviews The plot in Knight’s Shadow started soon after the end of the first book all you have to know is that it’s much thrilling and gripping than before The trials and tribulation that Falcio and the gang faced here is intense or you could also say full of bad luck It’s fast paced with great actions scenes and overall the book is a much engaging read compared to its predecessor I find myself struggling to put the book down every time I took a break especially starting from the the second half of the book right after the Interlude when the story started going into grimdark territoryI have high praises towards one particular scene; it’s foreshadowed in the prologue of the book The Greatcoat’s Lament This scene is definitely the best part of the book heck it could even be the highest point of the series it’s gritty top notch and very well written Everyone who has read this book will definitely know what I’m talking about herePicture Greatcoat’s Lament Cover of the ARC editionPlus the character interactions are intriguing than before One of the minor cons I had with the first book was that I wanted Falcio to spend time with Brasti and Kest their camaraderie and friendship is definitely one of the strongest factors of the series and it please me to see that they do receive many interactions here Their camaraderie bromance are solidified and I should also note other than the great character developments for Falcio Brasti Kest and Darriana my favorite character in the series so far will have to be Brasti any actions or dialogue he has is simply golden “Happiness is a series of grains of sand spread out in a desert of violence and anguish” The only two minor cons I have with the book is that I find Falcio during the first half of the book was uite hard to get attached to his personality while necessary for his development was annoying to read The other con is that I think some of the revelations were too predictable not all of them though some were really well done and I definitely didn't expect itOverall Knight’s Shadow is a worthy superior seuel and a necessary addition in the Greatcoat series Sebastien de Castell improves every element from the foundation that was carved in the first book for a compelling read and experience It was as I said before hard to put down compelling and I will definitely read what he left in store for me for the last two books of the series You can find this and the rest of my Adult EpicHigh Fantasy Sci Fi reviews at BookNest
