And it’s time for another book review! As my book group continues through Matthew Stover’s Acts of Caine series, I’m continuing my own reviews here. Today, we’re looking at the third book in the dark fantasy series, titled Caine Black Knife. My previous review for Blade of Tyshalle can be found here. (Maybe someday I’ll get around to doing a proper review for Heroes Die, since I loved it so much…)
Wow, it’s been a while, hasn’t it?
The last true book review I did on here was The Bands of Mourning—16 months ago. (I promise this isn’t the first book I read between then and now.)
Anyway, Blade of Tyshalle is the second book in Matthew Stover’s The Acts of Caine series, and the sequel to Heroes Die. Where Heroes Die was one of my favorite reads of 2017 so far, my thoughts on Blade of Tyshalle are a bit more complicated.
As this is the second in a series, there is one large spoiler for Heroes Die after the jump.
I’m back from a week-long business trip, settled in, and it’s time to get back to the Book of the Week. We’re going to be taking a brief break from the relentless march of the Black Company to look at a book that took me completely by surprise: Sabriel by Garth Nix.
The weeks keep flying by on me, and it’s time for another installment in my progression through The Black Company features as my Book of the Week. This time around, we’re getting to the conclusion of the Books of the North (sort of…) with book three, The White Rose.
We’re back for some more Black Company action in the Book of the Week! Staying in sequence, today we’re going to talk about Shadows Linger, the second book of the series.
It’s time for another Book of the Week, this time going back quite a few years to the first book in one of my favorite series: The Black Company. We’ve already had one book from this series feature in as a Book of the Week (book 5 or 6, depending on how you read the series), but the first book is more than deserving of its own space here.
