The Shattered Crown by Richard Ford
  

The Shattered Crown

Part of the Steelhaven Series
Fantasy   

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 David Hair, Joe Abercrombie and Mark Lawrence.

Heroes must rise ...The King is dead. His daughter, untested and alone, now wears the Steel Crown. And a vast horde is steadily carving a bloody road south, hell-bent on razing Steelhaven to the ground ...or the city will fall Before the city faces the terror that approaches, it must crush the danger already lurking within its walls. But will the cost of victory be as devastating as that of defeat?
