This final book in the A Man of His Word series should have ended with a bang. Instead, it was barely a fizzle. A good series, but not great, and not one I would say is a must-read.
Perilous Seas accelerates the pace of the series with some of the best storytelling and character development to date.
Overall a slow read with some confusing plotlines which is saved by some good character building and the promise of the larger story forming for our two main characters.
A slow start to the series with minimal character development, I'm nevertheless giving this one three rockets because it does build a good foundation for the remainder of the series.
A fun read with an ending that didn't quite satisfy. However, Duncan delights anyway with a likeable main character and enough twists to keep things interesting.
Lord of the Fire Lands by Dave Duncan continues the story begun in The Gilded Chain and ends with a twist that so surprised me I didn't wait long to pick up the next in the series. Duncan continues to impress!
A fun adventure full of colorful characters, intrigue, magic, and, of course, the King's Blades.
The third installment in Dave Duncan's Venetian fantasy/mystery series finds Nostradamus and his apprentice, Alfeo, attempting to solve a string of murders that may result in the death of the woman Alfeo loves if they fail. Duncan delivers another gripping tale!
The Alchemist's Code is a well-written, enjoyable read, full of mystery, intrigue, and action. The 2nd book in the Alchemist series is a must-read.
