Slow heavy reading
on 21 June 2017
I enjoyed the first of the trilogy a was happy to get hold of this second installment.
It was pretty much a reset, with Fitz sickly and prince regal in full control of the situation.
It's like the events at the end of book one were erased, the red ships still raid and the forged ones still roam.
Regal still plots and his coterie are up to no good.
Overall, it was slowly paced and had less action than the first one but maybe the third will improve
