REVIEWS:

‘Like the former books, the 3rd within the Obsidian and Blood sequence abounds with suspects and crimson herrings. It’s a twisty and vibrant story choked with unusual gods who call for sacrifices and discomfort for the least favour. I loved the way in which Acatl is starting to query the best way issues are, and the 1st stirrings of doubt are awakening in him. He’s continually had misgivings approximately his personal suitability as excessive Priest, yet during this novel his eyes are opened to a few of the deeper wrongs performed within the identify of the empire, and within the identify of people’s dependable loyalty to the gods.’ —WarpCore SF

‘I discovered this to be the easiest e-book of an outstanding sequence. a similar positives from the 1st books are nonetheless current, a truly easy-to-read writing type (easy to learn yet no longer easy or dumbed down), a short speed, and a few amazing international construction, wonderful accessibility regardless of the lesser recognize pantheon and names. although the second one publication handled a potential finish to the realm, grasp OF the home OF DARTS took an identical destiny and did it greater. might be this used to be simply because in lots of methods it felt extra like a delusion publication than a secret ebook, which lends itself higher to the “save the area” variety tale. The magic felt extra natural the following, it was once by no means used as a crutch, or even it was once simply greater defined. there has been a piece much less traveling this time round, which additionally ended in a tighter tale. The finishing concerned a number of confrontations that have been annoying and plausible, together with a few among those people who are imagined to be allies… a superb finish to the series.’ —Fantasy evaluate Barn

‘Whether you are taking it as historic noir or as a hugely exact fable, it’s not easy to not benefit from the Obsidian and Blood books—it’s an ideal healthy for these searching for anything varied from their ordinary fare, yet nonetheless fascinating in methods they’re used to.’ —Guys Lit Wire

‘Acatl, is particularly a lot on the middle of the tale, extra so might be than the plot. He slowly grows into his place because the excessive Priest of the lifeless during the trilogy, whereas the writer strikes alongside a parallel direction, her narrative starting to be into its teller and inhabiting his brain with expanding convenience and self-assurance. Acatl is either the hero and the author’s avatar as she explores her rules of what a hero can and will be. Perceptive readers will locate Acatl to be a truly diversified type of hero than we're familiar with analyzing approximately, however the motion and the secret continue so easily that a few may well by no means detect the gleeful contrariness that lurks less than the skin… Acatl isn't really, and this can be obvious from a lot previous within the trilogy, a customary motion hero. he's not even a standard secret solver, a minimum of now not within the Western idiom… the whole thing of the Obsidian & Blood trilogy will get excessive marks… for creativity, execution, and delicate subversion. not only suggested, yet, to paraphrase Demi Moore in a number of stable males, strenuously recommended.’ —Two Dudes in an Attic
