A Blade of Black Steel by Alex Marshall

The sequel to Alex Marshall's A Crown for Cold Silver, an outstanding, game-changing epic adventure featuring an unforgettable warrior.

After five hundred years, the Sunken Kingdom has returned, and brought with it a monstrous secret that threatens to destroy every country on the Star.

As an inhuman army gathers on its shores, poised to invade the Immaculate Isles, the members of the Cobalt Company face an ugly choice: abandon their dreams of glory and vengeance to combat a menace from another realm, or pursue their ambitions and hope the Star is still there when the smoke clears.

Five villains. One legendary general. A battle for survival.

The Crimson Empire series is so good: kind of an evolution of “grimdark” fantasy that adds back in a ton of color, humor, outlandish monsters, and even more outlandish characters. It’s a little like a series of heavy metal album covers and anime credit sequences stitched together with some unholy technique into a coherent world, and then populated with the perfect blend of barbarians, retired villains, fops, and heretics. This second volume improves on the first, basically tightening down the screws until the characters and world are under such pressure that there’s no way everything won’t explode in the last volume in a glorious and horrifying way. And it still manages to have a satisfying ending on its own, a nice trick for a trilogy middler.
