This book is packed with action and romance! Easily a new favorite of mine, The King’s Blood is divided into three sections: Darkness Reigns, The Heir, and The End of All Things which makes it easier to read the rather chunky book
The King’s Blood was a nice mix of plot and character development. A lot of books that I have read lately focus on one and not the other. I loved the characters and the plot never slowed down. Speaking of characters, my favorites were Wilek, Kalenek and Trevn. I wish the whole book was written from JUST their points of view. I do understand why she chose the point of views she did; they worked well with the story and gave you insight where you needed it.
There was quite a bit of talk of concubines and prostitutes throughout the book. It does fit the story line and it wasn’t detailed or awkward for the reader.
