Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Follows on from Herald of the Storm being the second in the magnificent Steelhaven trilogy. The first gave us the stories of seven main characters, all from their point of view. This one brings their stories together, making for a pacier, faster read. All the main characters are there but now divided between Palace, Greencoats, the Tower of Magisters and the Steelhaven underworld, the view of the Sho’tana chief is new. You will gather, I think, that you really should not read this unless you’ve read the first.

If you like Richard Ford you might also like to read books by Mark Lawrence, David Hair and Joe Abercrombie.
