The Blood Queen by Martyn Stanley is the third installment in the Deathsworn Arc series. Wizard Saul Karza and his comrades have made it back to the Empress, but she is not as Saul remembers.
This book gave a bit more insight into some of the mysteries surrounding the female elf and the wizard, but I think the female character gets too much attention from the author. I would like to know more about the dark elf and the dwarf. I can see the author's writing has matured since the first book, and the editing is getting much better.
I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
