Overview

The intrepid crew of the Ketty Jay have been shot down, set up, double-crossed and ripped off. They’ve stolen priceless treasures, destroyed a 10,000-year-old Azryx city and sort-of-accidentally blown up the son of the Archduke. Now they’ve gone and 
started a civil war. This time, they’re really in trouble.

As Vardia descends into chaos, Captain Darian Frey is doing his best to keep his crew out of it. He’s got his mind on other things, not least the fate of Trinica Dracken. But wars have a way of dragging people in, and sooner or later they’re going to have to pick a side. It’s a choice they’ll be staking their lives on.

Cities fall and daemons rise. Old secrets are uncovered and new threats revealed. When the smoke clears, who will be left standing?

I had a hard time putting this book down. It was predictable at times, but is an intensely fun book that keeps moving the whole way through, magnificently punctuating the apparent end to the series. Would HIGHLY recommend if you liked Chris` other books.

stumbled onto this author and thank my stars I did......loved all books of this series. In my estimation, each new book just got better with Ace of Skulls the best so far. Well written and developed, the dialogue is excellent. Kept me entranced. I want more!
