The epic conclusion to The Dagger and The Coin series, perfect for fans of George R.R. Martin.
Lord Regent Geder Palliako's great war has spilled across the world, nation after nation falling before the ancient priesthood and weapon of dragons. But even as conquest follows conquest, the final victory retreats before him like a mirage. Schism and revolt begin to erode the foundations of the empire, and the great conquest threatens to collapse into a permanent conflict of all against all.
In Carse, with armies on all borders, Cithrin bel Sarcour, Marcus Wester, and Clara Kalliam are faced with the impossible task of bringing a lasting peace to the world. Their tools: traitors high in the imperial army, the last survivor of the dragon empire, and a financial scheme that is either a revolution or the greatest fraud in the history of the world.

A satisfying conclusion to this very interesting series of books. I look forward to more novels from this author in the future.
It was a good continuation of the series... the only reason I'm reviewing this at all is because it deserves a better rating than it currently has.
This is one of the most interesting, well written books I have read. AB is truly talented. I enjoyed all his books as much as those of Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordon, and Brent Weeks. No spoilers, so I all can ask is PLEASE, PLEASE continue this series!! And, thank you for putting this tale to paper.
Abraham nails the landing in this final volume of his "Dagger & Coin" series. As in the previous books, the incredibly well-drawn characters drive the action forward, in this case to a series of satisfying conclusions. The major plot threads and challenges introduced along the way are all resolved in satisfactory, if not always straightforward fashion. Abraham leaves room for the story to continue, though - life goes on in this world, and beyond the borders of the lands once ruled by the dragons.
