The New Empire intends to celebrate its victory over the Nationalists with a day that will never be forgotten. On the high holiday of Wintertide, the empress will be married, and Degan Gaunt and the Witch of Melengar will be publically executed. Once the empress suffers a fatal accident, everything will be perfect. There is only one problem-Royce and Hadrian have finally found the Heir of Novron.
I’ve loved this series by Michael and having had it over subsequent months has made it a pure joy as I haven’t had to wait long to see what else life has in store for the principle characters who are reminiscent of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser which adds a touch of nostalgia for a number of fantasy fans.
Add to this cracking pace, top notch prose and dialogue that works well which also allows the characters to grow as well as to hopefully work things out for their own advantage and overall its been a real pleasure to read. Cracking fun all in and definitely a series I’d recommend to other fantasy fans.
