This novel has the most political intrigue of any in the series all against a backdrop of ongoing personal tragedy. At one point, Lissa asks if somebody somewhere decided that Lissa needed to be kicked continuously, that her life wasn't complete without crap happening to her constantly. It certainly seems like that is the case. Lissa just can't catch a break, and this novel closes with a major cliff-hanger.
Not only that, unlike other book series that I've read, where the main character practically becomes omnipotent, we have this powerful main character, Lissa, who still experiences very real human emotions and disappointments and tries to rise above the constant challenges that she faces.
Blood War continues from the last book and we experience Lissa's challenges in being a new Queen, face some heartbreaking betrayals and get some great action sequences. I read this in one sitting, and wanted more when I finished. The only slight hurdle was keeping up with all the characters. I know that they're there for a reason, but I find myself stopping periodically to try to remember who they are. However, this doesn't take away from the main storyline. Overall, this was another great read!
The author has so far avoided getting greedy and jacking up prices and also not allowed her writing to degrade. However, she is bringing in many more characters as mates for Lissa. This must be a sub conscious promiscuity by the author as Lissa has more men than she can possibly deal with already. Lissa continues to be unbelievably overwhelmingly attractive to the opposite sex with men falling in love after having a short meeting with her. The only men able to resist her charms appear to be either gay or evil. Heck, I can't even keep track of how many husbands she has now. The author needs a little discipline and editorial pruning here. But the story line continues to be entertaining.
You should support her to help fight the greedy authors (David Weber for example) looking for double price premiums on kindle books. For the price it is a excellent fun afternoon read. If anything her writing is getting better.
