A Crucible of Souls (Sorcery Ascendant Sequence, #1) 17, Aug

Read from August 09 to 17, 2016

Having recently finished with Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy (grimdark with a little dose of grimdark, adding some grimdark on the top) i was looking for something lighter to read. I requested some recommendations on a fb group of Fantasy Readers, and they didn't fail to deliver.

Saint's Blood (Greatcoats #3) 09, Aug

Read from April 19 to 23, 2016

Reading all three Greatcoats installments back-to-back, it's rather hard to write separate and different reviews for each one. Saint's Blood is exactly like the first 2 installments of the Greatcoats series. I don't like to get repetitive, but I have nothing different to offer here. De Castell's books are characterized as high fantasy with a fairy tale aura to it, with fast (yet relaxing) pacing, unexpected circumstances, witty humor, and greatly developed characters. 

Knight's Shadow (Greatcoats #2) 09, Aug

Read from April 10 to 17, 2016

Knight's Shadow is the undisputed high point of the series so far. De Castell removed the obnoxious, fairy-tale elements from the first book (Magical horse, wicked step mother, princess-for-rescue), and staved off the protagonists from the safe zone (Spoiler: Well, not entirely, but the whole "I cut my own hand" thing was cool and totally unexpected).
