I have read the previous two books in this trilogy with great enjoyment and this one did not disappoint. I don't really regard this book as a sequel because each book picks up where the other left off, so it could almost be one big book a la 'Lord of the Rings' or 'His Dark Materials.' But of course it would be an extremely long book.
I particularly like the way in which Edgar's character develops throughout the three novels. He is much more hardened and, when necessary, ruthless in 'Blood of Ironside'; which of course he had to be in order to survive.
I would love to pursue his story further. Of course I know he never became king, but since he lived to a good age there is probably much more that could be told.
