Summary

Would you - could you? - uphold the law at the cost of those you love?

Falcio val Mond, First Cantor of the Greatcoats, is on the brink of fulfilling his dead King's dream: Aline is about to take the throne and restore the rule of law once and for all. But for the Greatcoats, nothing is ever that simple.

In neighbouring Avares, an enigmatic new warlord is uniting the barbarian armies, and, even worse, he is rumoured to have a new ally: Falcio's old nemesis Trin. With the armies of Avares at her back, she'll be unstoppable.

Falcio, Kest and Brasti go racing north to stop her, but in those cold, treacherous climes they discover something altogether different - and far more dangerous: a new player plans to take the throne of Tristia, and the Greatcoats, for all their determination and skill, may not be able to stop him.

Enjoyed all four books

I really enjoyed these books. Not quite Brandon Sanderson or Tad Williams but almost. Kept me listening when ever possible. Loved the humour and a great narrator.

Absolutely amazing

I'd never heard of these books or the author before stumbling accords them on Audible. I'd been on the lookout for new books after exhausting all books by Brendan Sanderson, Robin Hobb, Brent Weeks, Jim Butcher, Joe Abercrombie, Brian McClellan, and as many other fantasy stories as I could get my hands on.

So when I picked up these books, I was hoping for the next series to hold my attention over the course of many weeks, and I particularly enjoyed the story of the Greatcoats, and their ode to the swashbuckling greats.

I look forward to reading more by Sebastian de Castell :).

Enthralling and Emotional

A fitting end to this fantastic series written with obvious love for the art and delivered wonderfully by Joe Jameson. The beautiful storytelling is worth the heartache de Castell makes us go through.

A preposterous romp

I have enjoyed all four books and was not disappointed by the ending. The narrator was excellent apart from his occasional lapses of “th” into “v”. I cried and laughed. Thank you for your work and tidying up all ends especially.

Once in a generation epic.

I find it hard to find a great series that you can sink your teeth in to and spend hours reading or listening to, dreaming of the characters. So authors get so close, but often fall short just be a hairs breadth.

This, is no one of those instances.

I was recommended Saints Blood by my sister, and after finishing it off in a matter of days, proceeded to devour the entire series over the last month.

I regret nothing.

I love this story.

I love these characters.

I already miss them, and I can't wait to see them again - like long lost friends.

A great ending.

I’ve loved all of these books and have really enjoyed all of them. I was actually a little sad listening to this last instalment but it was excellent and a fine conclusion to the epic story. I will miss the characters and feel a little bereft now it’s all over. More please?!?
