My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I liked it even more than the first book in The Shadow Campaign. Great characters, wonderful pacing. Anyone who knows European history and the French Revolution will appreciate this fantasy with its twists and turns on the storming of the Bastille, the revolutionary committees and their leaders, the issue of the monarchy and the church and more.
Even better, we see how a charismatic military leader can rise out of chaos to lead a nation. Can't wait for the next book!
