Favourite book of August 2023 - Review (Blogmas 2023 - Day 21)

 Hello everyone!!

We have reached the heart of summer and my favourite book of August was The Martyr.

The Martyr by Anthony Ryan is the second book in the Covenant of Steel trilogy and as the first one The Pariah, it is full of action, intrigue and magic.
The book picks up where book one ended and Alwyn Scribe is still at Lady Evadine's side as her advisor and protector.

I found the first half of the book to be a little slow for me but then it picked up and it was really good.
Anthony Ryan knows how to write good characters and good battle scenes. The Martyr is medium -paced , adventurous, dark and tense.

I will definitely be reading book three The Traitor to find out how Alwyn's story continues.

Rating: 4 Stars

About the book:

Times have changed for Alwyn Scribe. Once an outlaw, he’s now a spymaster and sworn protector of Lady Evadine Courlain, whose visions of a demonic apocalypse have earned her the fanatical devotion of the faithful.

Yet Evadine’s growing fame has put her at odds with both Crown and Covenant. As trouble brews in the kingdom, both seek to exploit her position for their own ends.

Sent to the Duchy of Alundia to put down a rebellion, Alwyn must rely on old instincts to fight for his new cause. Deadly feuds and ancient secrets are laid bare as war erupts, a war that will decide the fate of the Kingdom of Albermaine and, perhaps, prevent the coming of the prophesied Second Scourge.

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
