    Great new series

    Another great tale from Steven. And like his other stories:
    We see lots of cool stuff. Weapons. Creatures. War machines.
    We see lots of battle. Black Guild. White Dragon. The Phage. Bloodspeakers. Veilwardens. Dawn Knights. Dream Witch. Blood Queen. Skullborn. Some of these are not be plural but that's up to the reader to find out.
    So much action, someone has to die. It's not who you expect. Or maybe it is. Once or twice.
    Secret identities. 'Nuff said.

    Stuff I liked:
    I like the chapters by perspective. Every major character in the story get at least one POV chapter.

    Steven has two more books to go - it is a trilogy - and this one goes to completion of the arc with this in mind. The ending isn't cliffhangery as far as immediate danger but: "What happens next?"

    The imagery is similar to that of Blood Skies, but as similar as they are, they don't imitate each other. I don't see vra'taar and think Avenger. The Phage is nothing like the Revengers . Arena, not alike any more than they have to be.

    Nearly every character has a choice to deal with, some more than others. Pay close attention to the descriptions; they have story bits everywhere.

    Read, enjoy, anticipate. Wait, you don't have City of Scars yet? Stop reading this and go get it!
