Tragedy rarely visits alone; when one hero falls, more usually follow, such is the nature of war.

Whilst Cheung travels Brisance and the Black Guild tears itself apart, Correia Burr rides for The Marches with her trusted Pathfinders, in search of an enemy they know nothing about.

But when her network of informers yield little, Correia makes a necessary decision to lead her

Recommends it for: Grimdark fans
I give this one 4 out of 5-stars. I have marked it down a little because there is a rape scene that was upsetting for me, (just so that you know).

I am a big fan of this self-published author. I have liked pretty much everything I have read by him so far. The scope of his imagination is great and, (as Mark Lawrence says on the cover) "...the author's enthusiasm shines out of every page."

There is a lot of combat in this book and a great deal of dialogue too. He writes very much the way that I wri

Full review is here, on my blog!~

In this volume, we catch up with the second half of the characters who appeared in Black Cross, while the events of Black Guild run concurrently. So in this one we’re following the adventures of four groups:

-The Pathfinders are traveling from Altoln to Siretta and get into plenty of shenanigans along the way. Then more shenanigans when they actually get there. Because there is some considerable stuff happening in the country of Siretta.
-The legendary Captain Mann

I received this as a free ARC copy from the author.
4.5 stars rounded up to 5 stars

OK... I want to start out by saying I really loved this book. The reason I gave it unofficially 4.5 stars rounded up to 5 was that it was not as quite as good as the first two books by just a tiny bit. As great as this book was it was also a wee bit like "The Two Towers" in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Meaning that at times it felt like I was witnessing events that though they were important to the overall story

I enjoyed this book and the series as a whole, however, I expected a trilogy, with this third book tying up loose ends from books one and two, so I was a little confused and disappointed by the introduction of so many new characters, and in that regard my expectations were not met. That is on me, I did enjoy the world building, and the further development of relationships of some of the characters from earlier books. I feel after reading book three of this series, in my opinion, book one and two ...more

Awesome series that keeps getting better! High fantasy with so many great characters and plots!

What an amazing ride this book was...and for now, suffice to say it was all that I hoped it to be, and then a whole lot more! I received this as an ARC from the author, and I'll get back with a more extensive review soon.

In the mean time, I'd recommend a pre-order of this book. If you liked the previous installments in this series, the Black Arrow is not going to let you me!

“I think Pecker will be able to sit on my lap, once in the saddle," Gleave said in all seriousness.
Correia sighed and moved back through the tavern's rear door.
"You're making it too easy for me", Sav said, before following her.
"What's wrong with holding Pecker in my lap?"
Even Errolas smirked as he limped after the other two, another limper close behind, Pecker at their feet.”
