โ€œWords matter. Without words you can’t have stories and without stories we would never have heard of the Greatcoats.โ€

Knight’s Shadow takes place after the events of book 1. This was better than the first book because I felt more familiar with everything and it added something to the first book. The characters are the main reason that makes it a great read.

The writing is good, I like that it is easy to read and that it is fast paced which makes it an addicting read. This book was actually longer than I thought it is, in fact it is the longest book in the series according to the number of pages in the paperback copies that I bought.

Flacio, Kest and Brasti are definitely unique characters and I like how they all were very distinct and amazing in their own way. Falcio who is the narrator is still my least favorite out of the trio which is a bummer but he is still well written so I can live with that.

There are new characters and there are some revelations about characters that we already know and I think that was great. I wanted more of Brasti because there is never enough of him and he had some awesome moments in this book which makes me happy. I also have to mention that I am not buying one particular romance in this book.

I don’t know if I can discuss the plot without spoiling this book or book 1 so I am not gonna do that. I just believe this is more polished and it is darker too. I am afraid that it is going to become repetitive somehow (I faced that with the author’s other series) and I am not a big fan of those moments that fade into the background and we don’t get the action that we were waiting for.

โ€œHeโ€™d told me the world could be the most lovely place you could imagine, so long as your imagination was fueled by love.โ€

Summary: Very enjoyable, fast, dark and humorous read. I think it was a step up from book 1 but I am rating them the same for different reasons. I love the characters but the narrator Falcio is my least favorite of them. I liked the plot but some things could have been done better which is why I am not giving it a 5 stars rating. I am very excited (and a bit anxious) for the sequels.
