Overview

Prince of Dogs by Kate Elliott

Set in an alternate Europe where bloody conflicts rage, the second book of the Crown of Stars epic fantasy series chronicles a world-shaking conflict for the survival of humanity

Sanglant—the Prince of Dogs, King Henry’s bastard son; though believed dead by all who could succor him, he is being held captive in the city of Gent by Bloodheart, the Eika warlord. Cursed by his mother’s blood with an inability to die, he struggles to maintain the last shreds of his sanity in the hope rescue may yet come….
 
Liath—now a King’s Eagle, and still grieving over Sanglant, she strives to unlock the secrets of the past while seeking to evade the traps set for her by an obsessively ambitious man. But even a post in King Henry’s court offers her little protection from those determined to claim the forbidden knowledge she has hidden….
 
Alain—raised in humble surroundings but now proclaimed a Count’s heir, he is increasingly troubled by visions of the enemy he befriended and the Lady of Battles who he’s sworn to serve. A man who desires nothing more than peace, he is about to be thrust into the heart of war with the Eika….
 
Fifth Son—least favored child of Bloodheart, he has returned to the lands of his own people to build an army to do his father’s bidding. If he survives this mission, he will become a force to be reckoned with….
 
And even as King Henry continues his progress through his troubled realm, defeating rebellious lords and gathering their promises of troops to use at Gent, Sanglant, Liath, Alain, and Fifth Son are fighting their own battles against almost overwhelming odds. Only time will tell who will prove triumphant as all are caught up in the dangers and turmoil of a world at war.

This book was absolutely unbelievable. I love the characters and the plot, but some parts are a little lengthy, especially talking about the stars and heavens, though it is interesting. THe characters could be better expressed, but of course loving Terry Goodkind, i tend to expect too much for characters

This was an unbelievable book, i hadn't read anything better since Terry Goodkind (and god have i been looking and reading a lot) Its an unbelievable storyline with the greatest events, but the characters could use a little help. No character can surpass Sanglant, he is the epidemy of the perfect fantasy character (well, not exactly but still......), and my problem was that he was not in the book as much as i would have liked even though the book was titled after him. The rest of the characters are defintely interesting, and have very realistic human flaws, which is truly hard to find in hard core fantasy books..........overall this book was great

This book was definitely well researched and written. I enjoyed every minute of it. This is certainly a book that I will read again.

This whole series was surprisingly good, definitely a case of "don't judge a book by its cover." Multiple cultures and lands interact, and the rich histories of these cultures becomes more apparent as the story progresses. I found the protagonist's reaction to trauma to be much more realistic than many fantasy books, where once the action is over, the effects seem to be forgotten. I would recommend the entire Crown of Stars series.
