Now that you may have heard of The Black Coast, And I Read updates you all today with a review of the sequel! I love when guest reviewers request a book in a series. In a world of so many books, following up on a series is a true testament to the first! Keep reading this book review for more!
Filled with war-dragons, armoured knights, sea-faring raiders, dangerous magic and battle scenes.
Still reeling from the events of The Black Coast, and the rise of the daemonic warlord, the political machinations, betrayals, new friendships, duels and battles continue to unfold as new characters appear and old return.
As the quest for the new God-King begins and a deadly coup is planned, the Nardia seems to be a kingdom forever in turmoil.
(Disclaimer: I received this book from Netgalley. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)
The Splinter King continues the different story arcs introduced in The Black Coast prequel. As you might expect, you once again follow along with the main characters as their story unfolds, with the addition of a handful of side characters to mix it up a bit. Overall the character- and world-building, along with the rather fascinating writing style, stays top-notch. I’ve learned to like the way people refer to themselves based on how they see themselves with others. Adds an interesting twist to the conversations.
If you read the first book and liked it, I can not think of any reason why you shouldn’t give The Splinter King a shot.
