I couldn't put this down! I have to admit, I pulled an all-nighter.... Very, very well done, and this world is splendid. There are two related novels, *Lord of the Fire Lands* and *Sky of Swords*. To tell too much would be unkind, but you really owe it to yourself to read the three of them together. Duncan does something absolutely unprecedented, to my knowledge, and it's brilliant.

This book is wonderful. I absolutely adore all of his King's Blades books and I wish the author had more of them. They're well paced, quick and enjoyable reads. The characters are clever and enjoyable and the plot is quite fun.

I found this book in a second hand book shop and didn't expect it to be very good, and I was completely taken by surprise at the writing and the amazing story. I love this book to a degree that is truly stupid.

Duncan's entire trilogy of which The Gilded Chain is the first book is phenomenal. Everything a fantasy novel should have is in Duncan's book. Action, love, impressive storyline, and intrigue are all ways to describe this novel. The only problem with reading the entire trilogy is that at times it seems that the facts don't add up. But the overall experience is worth the buy!

An outstanding story of loyalty, love, honor, conjuring and deception. A story of a king and a bonded swordsmen. How people are played as pawns in the game of thrones. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy. All I can say is that I couldn't wait to finish it to find out what happens and I can't wait to read the sequel 'Lord of the Firelands'!

I could nitpick but what would be the point. All the important elements are there. The world, while based off medieval Europe, is actually fairly detailed. The magic system fascinates me and is that perfect blend of familiar and totally unique. The plot twists pleasantly and builds wonderfully. Normally I hate main characters, but I love Roland Durendal! I can not recommend this book more highly. For the full review visit us at ReadingOverTheShoulder.com
