Review published on January 30, 2017.
Having seen the cover of this book, I thought I was going to be in for a long slog. Names that can sometimes be hard to pronounce, events of war and bloody battles that can sometimes be out of my comfort zone. But as I started the first few pages my reading pace soon quickened as I wanted to know more about Marcus and Winter, the two main soldiers, Queen of Vordan and other characters. Between the priests of various colours all pledging various allegiances and the Priests of the Black trying to seek out demons, there is never a dull moment in this book, although I do have to admit that there were a few times I felt like I was going up a very steep hill and getting through it was difficult. But I persevered and I am glad I did. This is the fourth instalment in the Shadow Campaigns series, but I think I would like to read the other three to see if they are just as exciting.
