The focus on his girlfriend I thought was okay and not too over done (in relation to another readers comment) but to each their own I guess. I am a bit torn on what I feel about his current 'sleeping' arrangements but I think the author captures the dilemma perfectly.
This is a story about the best and the worst of human (and dragon) behaviour. With wonderful skill and subtlety, Cheryl Matthynssens develops a cast of complex characters and weaves them into her gripping plot in a way I find fascinating and rewarding. From the coldly calculating High Minister to the vile, psychotic Trench Lord, Alador has to develop his special, dragon-enhanced powers in the midst of intrigue and constant subterfuge. It’s a steep learning curve, especially when you have been infused not only with the dragon’s extraordinary magic, but also its capacity for white-hot rage…
I was reluctant to put the book down at any stage, and the brilliant hook at the end left me eager for further adventures in Book 3. I think this series is a classic in its genre, and I recommend The Blackguard without reservation.
appreciat greatly giving name nxt book in series.
badly let down with his moaning and obsesion for messi girl hoping she goes some how as fustrating, and he's way with keelee was dissipinting.
only real conplait rest 4 most part all good.
If can add bit humar to would be good and hot girl always good, please less love intrest stuff.
To me, world-building is always crucial in any speculative fiction. Author Ms Matthynssens has constructed an complex, beguiling universe, one which I plan to explore more closely. Our protagonist, Alador, finds himself in a heartless world where the strong prosper and the weak are destroyed. If he is to survive and prosper, he must learn new skills, and quickly. I'm a sucker for underdogs, so I loved Alador's personal story. Also, I'm a big fan of political intrigue, and this novel is replete with Machiavellian schemes and dastardly enemies. The plot is intricate, the characterisation astute; there are no real weaknesses. Pacing is perfect, and although this book is close to 500 pages, it read quickly; the pages turned themselves.
If you're into imaginative fantasy with fantastical creatures, dragons and intrigue, THE BLACKGUARD is the book for you. Judging by the plethora of positive reviews garnered by the other episodes in the series, Ms Matthynssens has created a world of Tolkien-esque proportions, with thousands of pages of fantasy excellence on offer. Based on this novel, I recommend you give THE BLUE DRAGON GEAS series a try.
