I enjoyed this story quite a bit. It is very tightly plotted and never feels dull. The characters are consistent and the world was very interesting. In my limited experience, David V Stewart has a very minimalist writing style that makes his work very readable. If you are looking for a good entertaining read, buy it.
I have only two real criticisms about this specific novel.
Firstly, I despise sequel hooks and there are a few (albeit only a few) little moments in the novel that have nothing to do with the main plot and, I assume, are only there so they can be brought up again in any sequels. That being said, these moments are minimal and I think that most readers will probably have forgotten about them by the end of the novel. Alternatively, these could just be dead ends or world building moments that I misunderstood as hooks, so keep that in mind.
My second criticism is that the descriptions of the city and the characters surroundings were sometimes too minimal and I found that I could not visualize what was going on. There is one action scene in particular that involves fighting in an alleyway and then out to the street that I got very confused about. I couldn't tell who was where or how some people were able to get away and where others came from. This unfortunately lessened the tension and I mostly felt confused rather than afraid for the characters, as I had to go back and reread a few sections to try and make sense of the landscape. I also fully admit that this may be a personal failing of myself rather than the writing, but I am an avid reader so I am confident in my criticism.
Overall, a solid entry by David V. Stewart. Interesting world, interesting plot, characters that feel like people, all packaged in a good readable style. 4/5
A queen eager to escape and unwise to the ways of the fugitive. A slave whose freedom traps her in a familiar, self-imposed prison. A sellsword who battles to keep his cold heart from thawing. Unlikely allies and honorable enemies. These are the lovable characters that elevate this work. They make everything else so much richer and more enjoyable.
Really enjoying these 2-3 hour reads. They are replacing the terrible hollyweird movies for my entertainment time.
TL;DR Pick it up, you won't be disappointed.
