My love for this world can never be understated. I even love to read the thoughts of a soon to be dead king. Oh, and learning that I share first name with a certain duke was a nice little surprise!

Brief but fascinating, The King's Letters is a quick vignette in the Greatcoats series, that provides some cool insight - as well as a fun treat - for the enthusiastic reader of the series.

Equivalent to eating a whole box of girl scout cookies, then shortly after finishing it you find some extra stuck in the back of your teeth. "Oooh, a tasty surprise!". Fin.

Short stories are great if the nature of the stories entrances and brings you in.This book does that in spades,if you have read Greatcoats ,this gives you a little something to fill the gap that this series needs.And what this series needs is more,more,more.

I have read the full series and this short escapade brought all the characters back into my imagination,and probably will have to start at the beginning again......

A brilliant little venture for our merry band of heroes,that I loved.

Something Greatcoats-related? Sign me the hell up.

Short but sweet. Very, very sweet in fact.
I loved the letters to our merry trio. The insight into the other Tristian factions apart from the Honori (Knights), Dashini, Bardatti, etc was fascinating. I'm very interested in the Ragnieri in particular.... hoping they'll pop up in the new series. So much stuff to be excited for.

And to top it all off, this achingly beautiful message at the end....

A short and nice collection of the King's letters and notes on the different orders of Tristia. Gives some additional background information on the world, but most is revealed already within the main series. Also, I liked getting a glimpse into the defunct's King Paelis POV, where his famed sense of humor is revealed :). Very fast read overall! (20mins)
