Review: The Emperor’s Blades

The Emperor's Blades
The Emperor’s Blades by Brian Staveley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alright, let’s talk about this book — I read it as part of an online/digital book club I’m in that focuses on Fantasy/SciFi, and this was our April book of the month! I was super stoked about this because I’ve been eyeing this book for some time, especially whenever it popped up on Book Outlet 😉

But, alas, I’d never bought it because I not only didn’t know anything about it, but I didn’t know anyone who’d read it — plus I had tons of other books to read — but it was always lurking in the back of my mind.

All in all, I liked it — I didn’t LOVE it, but I did like it. I thought the female characters were a little weak and sometimes the viewpoint character voices were too similar for me to distinguish between them. But the religion-based worldbuilding was very interesting. I look forward to reading the next installment.
