Review: Tyrant's Throne

Tyrant's Throne Tyrant's Throne by Sebastien de Castell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You'll need to get out your handkerchiefs, again, but it's worth it. Sebastien de Castell brings his Greatcoats story to a rousing conclusion with plenty of swordplay, heart-wrenching moments, and odes to friendship, bravery, and love along the way.

The young heir to the throne is finally in the palace, but the work is just beginning. There are still enemies aplenty, duchies in rebellion, and an enemy lurking over the border in Avares.

The real question underlying all of the series is "Can the rule of law triumph over the rule of man?" and it's put to the test, repeatedly, but perhaps never more so than in this final, concluding novel. Fans of the series will find it a must-read, and I would encourage anyone who likes The Three Musketeers, Robin Hood, Zorro or who thinks Basil Rathbone was the true star of all of those films where he was cast as the sword wielding villain to check out Greatcoats, starting with Book 1, Traitor's Blade
