The Blood Knight - Greg Keyes

The start of this book was very poor, extremely choppy. I suspect editorial butchery, and given that it ended how it did, there would seem to be pretty clearly more to come.

So this could be a case of hacking and slashing to fit it into the amount of books that the publisher wanted. Almost a rush at the end, as well, it seems.

A bit disappointing.

Anne has to grow up fast to deal with her small war, and noble relatives that appear to be on her side, as well as deal with the supernatural Faiths, Kept, Sefry and others, as well as keep her group of friends together and alive.

Aspar and Stephen have their own quests and monsters to deal with, big worms, evil priests and Sefry, that sort of thing.

3 out of 5
