David Nathaniel in this book is less likable than the first and so without all the backstory he comes off more like a ponce.
Taani Reads you will need a basic backstory as the bond between master and servant
Marthie Elice I would not recommend that. Read all three books in order :) This is a trilogy that should be read from book 1.
