A Sword and Sorcery Series Review by Mulluane
The books in this series expand the world of the King's Blades, taking them to new places and exposing them to new cultures and forms of magic. Each book also challenges its hero in new and different ways, stretching the limits of their bond and forcing them to come up with some creative solutions. I loved Paragon Lost and Impossible Odds, both were extremely fun reads and definite page-turners. I liked Jaguar Knights a little less but it was still a good read.
Lots of swordplay, great characterizations, plenty of sex, drama and violence plus interesting world building. If you love sword and sorcery with a bit of romance thrown in and plenty of intrigue and mystery to keep the pages turning, you will love these books. These stories have an adult feel to them, there is plenty of sex and violence but none of it is overly graphic in detail. Good all around fun fantasy. For more information, I suggest reading the individual reviews. Especially in this case since the three books do not follow a common story making it hard to summarize the series as a whole.
