Book Description

Venice stands victorious. It has beaten back the German emperor's army and the Byzantine navy. The Duchess Alexa's party at court is strong again. Her niece, Lady Giulietta, will be the next Regent, and possibly the next duchess. Giulietta's lover, Lord Tycho, will sit beside her.


But no one is prepared for the fury of Prince Alonzo, exiled regent and traitor to his city. No one is prepared for the harshest winter Europe has ever known. As the canals of Venice freeze and wolves cross the ice from the north, Alonzo's plotting brings the Venetian empire to the very edge of destruction.


With the Millioni family at war with itself, Lord Tycho, once a slave and a trained assassin, has to ask himself the only question that matters. How much is he prepared to sacrifice to keep Lady Giulietta's city safe?


Product Description

Book Description

The climactic final volume in a gripping historical trilogy set in Venice, about ambition, revenge and the rise of a vampire assassin

From the Back Cover

Snow shrouds Venice in cold darkness, ice fills the canals, and a thousand ghosts pluck at the shadow's edge.

A violent attack on Lady Giulietta's son forces Tycho from his new-found happiness and back into the treacherous intrigue of the court. For Giulietta's sake he would go to the world's end to track down those responsible.

As Venice teeters on the brink of civil war, its warring families prepare to discover who is a player and who a pawn in the coming struggle for power.

The Exiled Blade is the climatic finale to Tycho's story.

PRAISE FOR THE ASSASSINI TRILOGY

'Grimwood has made this fusion of genre energy and literary depth his calling card' Guardian

'Gritty, grimy, decadent and compelling' Sunday Times

'The writing is elegant, the dialogue razor sharp, the characters drawn economically but effectively, and the action is unrelenting' SciFi Now (five-star review)

'Conjures up the city so vividly that you can almost touch the place' SFX

4.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down 19 April 2013
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Ahh, assassins, historical settings and of course Urban Fantasy aspects make this title not only fun to sit down with but one that you really can't afford to pass up. Here within the pages Tycho has quite a few difficult choices to make as intrigue, double dealing and family vendetta's add up to throw the world into turmoil with very few chance for the hero to get a happy ending.

As usual with Jon, the writing is crisp, the pace outstanding and when added to characters that you just love to spend time around all round leaves you turning the pages hoping that your favourites will survive. This series really has been a cracking set of releases over the last few years and definitely one that will be keeping its treasured spot upon my shelves.

4.0 out of 5 stars An ending... 18 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
An interesting finale to the series, perhaps not quite living up to the heights of the previous 2 books, but satisfying none the less...
