The King's Blood

The King's Blood - Daniel Abraham

Impossible to talk about the plot of this book without spoiling it and the first book. But this was a solid second book. Some things really surprised me. 


I really enjoyed the strong female characters- especially Clara. She fast became my favorite and the ending, GREAT last scene - talking about the one before the epilogue - so glad I have the next book. Well done.


I must say I am not enjoying the banking angle as much as I did last book. That subplot is a chore for me to get through. I liked the political intrigue much better.  Probably just my preference. 


Solid 4 star read.
