Knife Sworn by Mazarkis Williams

After spending most of his life in captivity, Sarmin now sits upon the Throne of Cerana. But his reign is an uneasy one. And the emperor’s own heart is torn between two very different women: Mesema, a Windreader princess, and Grada, a lowborn untouchable with whom Sarmin shares a unique bond. In times past, a royal assassin known as the Emperor’s Knife served to defend the throne from menace, but the last Knife has perished and his successor has yet to be named. Sarmin must choose his own loyal death-dealer . . . but upon whom can be he bestow the burden of the Knife-Sworn?

Not quite finished with the book yet but after reading the first in this series Knife Sworn does not disappoint. Mr. Williams has taken palace intrigue and the richness of the characters to expand this world to greater depths and pull the reader into a labyrinth of possibilities that will keep you guessing and hoping with all hope a rescue will be found to stop the warring religious paradigms from destroying the known world.

A wonderful follow-up. Even better than the first. A powerful start builds steadily to an exciting conclusion.
