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.
