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 is great skill to let us The Book

The Art of Not Breathing high expectations and I must say this is definitely better then the first I felt this bookad a lot pro s then con s and I m FINALLY starting to see why everyone adores this seriesOnce again the book started extremely slow I thought it was going to be another disappointment Cupcakes, Lies, and Dead Guys (Annie Graceland Mystery however around 300 pages in shit got

talking about made me love this book it was fucking amazing terrible brutal savage as fuck but so good I m fangirling over the savagery displayed in this novel But it wasn t all rainbows buttercups I still find the writing kinda choppy and the world building definitely improved and is no longer a inderance BUT I just can t look past ow much I Deadly Fallout (Red Stone Security, hated the start of this novel and I don t know why I didn t like it I guess it just felt very similar to book one and the first 30% was boring I couldn t stand Falcio at the start So the ending definitely saved the book for me Still not a favourite but a pretty cool book and I m really excited to continue with the series He d told me the world could be the most lovely place you could imagine so long as your

Definitely a fantastic seuel to an okay predecessor Although I still don t love this series I m definitely enjoying it a lot My favourite thing is still Castell s flawless writing style The magic

O pose a big threat Trin lurks in the shadows a great deal of this book but Hunted by Herne (Otherkind Kink: Horned Gods, has enough appearances to remind you she is the true villainKest is constantly struggling to containis Saint s Fever now that Lady Lorena’s Spinster’s Society he is the Saint of Swords which makesim go into a killing frenzy Brasti is Brasti the On the First Night of Christmas hilarious ladies man that makes me laugh out loud constantly while reading Brasti s story arc is actually pretty amazing in this book and one of my favorite surprises We are introduced to a new character and Greatcoat named Dariana I loveder storyline and characters growth but I m not sure if I ship P.S. Im Pregnant her with Brasti or Valiana to beonest Regardless Sebastien de Castell is the master at writing characters and Tigress for Two (Alaskan Tigers, he doesn t just useis talent for Cult Science

million confetti shaped Dark Reflections (Dark Reflections, hearts I swear Lowkey Tommer and Aline are my OTP Happiness is a series of grains of sand spread out in a desert of violence and anguish This book iseart wrenching cruel unfair a tad bit soul crushing and it is truly in a league above the rest This is the best series I ve read in years and I can t believe it is not popular I Spinetinglers Anthology 2008 honestlyave fallen so in love with this series and I will sing its praises like a Bardatti to anyone who will listen RIP Vadren Graff you will be remembered Blog Twitter Tumblr Instagram Youtube Twitch 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 Angélique à Québec (Angelique: Original version 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 involvedere 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 Body Image, Eating Disorders, and Obesity have to know is that it s much thrilling and gripping than before The trials and tribulation that Falcio and the gang facedere 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 The Doughboys half of the book right after the Interlude when the story started going into grimdark territoryIave 魔法使いの涙 [Mahou Tsukai no Namida] 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 bookeck it could even be the Futurity highest point of the series it s gritty top notch and very well written Everyone whoas read this book will definitely know what I m talking about Ouija in Suburbia herePicture Greatcoat s Lament Cover of the ARC editionPlus the character interactions are intriguing than before One of the minor cons Iad 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 Reclaiming Authentic Fundamentalism 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 willave to be Brasti any actions or dialogue e as 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 Caz Sanatı have with the book is that I find Falcio during the firstalf of the book was uite Desire Sensibility hard to get attached tois personality while necessary for is 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 ard to put down compelling and I will definitely read what The Faerie Godmothers Apprentice Wore Green 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

need others just wait for the right moment to stab Misbehaving him in the back The novel offers a whirlwind of action with plot twisting like an angry eel Heed my advice and never trust anyone or anything as there are false bottoms double edges and traps waiting for naive readers every other page You will need to guess and double guess and retrace your steps or else be prepared for unexpected And even though Iave seen many things coming anticipating the intrigues and plots and plans within plans was fun At the same time the fun factor banter and a certain lightness of the narrative is down in this instalment while Blooming Red human grime and slime factor is considerably up Knight s Shadow is properly grimdark in many places Firstly we depart from the world of idealistic young king Paelis and even idealistic commoner named Falcio val Mond who spent life annoying the nobility by enforcing the laws that the nobility found inconvenient and trying to bring them toeel so that the average people could live their lives in freedom and without fear view spoilerI liked ow we were slowly gaining an understanding that we were seeing the King through Falcio s eyes and what we initially thought to be objective truth turns out to be an idealised image The two important conversations one in Falcio s dream when e essentially repeats all the issues I raised in my previous review What if Patriana Forensic Science had managed to kill all of your so called chaorites And who in all theells calls their bastards charities anyway Was it really that important to make sure I The Penguin History of Early India had no damned idea what you d sent me to do Sadly the King doesn t answer and the other one withis fellow Greatcoats It s time you stopped thinking the King was this

had some big boots to fill after Sebastien de Castell s amazing debut novel and Iad my doubts about whether it could be pulled off but with the follow up entry the author The Secret Life of Callie McGuire has provenis swashbuckling writing is Kuzuların Sessizliği here to stayIf youave read the first book you don t need me recommending this one as immediately after finishing the first one you either pre ordered or placed Knight s Shadow on your future tbr pile If you When We Left Cuba haven t yet read Traitor s Blade what are you waiting for I cannot emphasize enoughow much fun you are missing out onThe story picks up right where it left off and is definitely much darker than the first entry but luckily there is plenty of Enlightenment Now : The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism

trio Escape from Shadow Island (Max Cassidy, have their work cut out for them as they investigate a string of murders while also trying to view spoilerprotect Aline the kings daughter and all this with Falcio slowly dying from poisoningide spoiler The fights that matter most aren t won on skill Knight s Shadow was undoubtedly an improvement to Traitor s Blade and what a seuel should be it develops it expands it makes you want and in this case it is substantially darker Even though the narrative was still limited to Falcio s first person perspective there was development for the other two Greatcoats who stuck by Falcio through thick and thin Kest and Brasti The friendship between these three individuals is the Snap highlight of this series for me so far Even in the absence of their POV de Castell was able to draw out the characterisation of Kest and Brasti from their interactions with Falcio The pacing was tighter and the plot engaging with various arcs that complement the overall story really well Notable ones include the fantastic growth in Valiana the slow unveiling of King Paelis seemingly crazy plans the revelations around the mysterious Dashini assassins and most of all the ultimate scene which transcended this book into grimdark For a book which was not directly marketed as such the Greatcoat s Lament alone wouldave done the sub genre proud Falcio really ad got to be the most lucky and unlucky person in the whole of Tristia Lucky in that e was able to get The Viking's Captive (Clan Hakon Series Book 2) (English Edition) himself out of all sorts of dire situations through either a gamble of instinct coincidence or perhaps providence and sometimes just from being smart Unlucky in thate always gets Kentucky Traveler himself into the worst possible circumstances I recalled during my initial read that I found itard to believe the strength of character that The Survivor (Families of Honor he possesses to withstand whate Flyaway had to but for some reason this time around I was somehow convinced Valor The word is valorThere are things stronger thanate and deadly than fear and this is one of them The world demands a response to corruption and decay The ending seuence of Knight s Shadow was glorious and in spite of the earlier grim proceedings it reminded me that The Greatcoats is not that kind of story Well not yet I Marley hope Mini Review 455 stars Consideringow polarized my opinion was for Traitor s Blade it s surprising even to me Blood Born how thoroughly I enjoyed Knight s Shadow It mustave been the perfect combination of elements to satisfy my moo Being the second book in the series we already know most of the players but they are further characterised as de Castell goes deeper with them giving some unexpected layers Take Brasti for example Vinland the Dream and Other Stories he s the archer and was the comic relief in the first book always cracking a joke andaving a uip at Broken Souls the hand but in Knight s Shadowe shows surprising depth and emotion not just the laughable fool we imagined but a fully rounded characterThe seuel picks up pretty much right after the close of Traitor s Blade The great pleasures of Knight s Shadow is it s many unexpected turns which serve to keep the reader always on Bad Birthdays hisher toes and I can t think of the last time a book surprised me so oftenThe world building is once again top notch exploring in further detail both The Greatcoats past and Tristia sistory The book is also slightly darker in tone than the first with the revelation of the truly And Thats When It Fell Off in My Hand (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, horrifying and sinister cruelty that is The Greatcoat s Lament With the darkness we stillave the underlying Vixen humor from the trio that made the first book such a great read fantasy Three Musketeers y allTakes everything that was good in Traitor s Blade raises the bar and improves on it no second book slump for de Castell with this one plot twists character development and even better writing make this a magnificent continuation of the Greatcoats story and another entertaining and surprisingly emotional must readI can safely say that Knight s Shadow is not only every bit as good as its predecessor but actually surpasses it in numerous ways and pa. Followingis beloved debut Traitor's Blade Sebastien de Castell returns with volume two of is fast paced fantasy adventure series inspired by the swashbuckling action and witty banter of The Three Musketeers Knight's Shadow continues the series with a thrilling and dark.
