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!
I will say that books 7 and 8 did start to get a little complicated with the political intrigue and keeping up with the husbands. I had to really jog my memory to figure out where some of the hubbies fit into the story.
Other than that, the story was a fast paced and entertaining read. Poor Lissa! Someone close to her hurts her in every single book. It's a wonder she stays the kind and helpful person she is.
I HATE coming to the end of these books. EVERY single time I say, "Noooooooo!" when I see the words "The end."
Connie Suttle! Add about 200 MORE pages to these books!! lol
Great Read, as are all her other books, including her young adult series. I am also looking forward to the High Demon series. Connie has become one of my top 2 writers.
