What. A. Ride.
Well, I think it's safe to say this is turning out to be one of my all-time favorite series.
I'm 10000% engaged with every single aspect of The Shadow Campaigns.
The politics are intriguing & elaborate with elements that continuously surprise me. The characters are teeming with individuality & complexity; they seem so real that at times I'm taken aback by how acutely I feel my emotions for them.
The perspectives seamlessly interlace into a precise, intelligent story line. All the hints of secrecy & sorcery keep me thoroughly spellbound.
When I read this series, I'm lost in it. I'm absolutely absorbed by it.
I'm hearing the deadly crack of musket balls in my ears. I'm feeling my heart tremble with the ground beneath the pounding of soldiers' feet. The looming threat of magic & unbridled fanaticism sends the anxiety flowing through every inch of me.
The Price of Valour is a wonderfully consistent installment in this series that I adore.
Honestly, everything about this is just so well constructed & I immensely enjoy every moment that I am able to spend in this world. I'm shocked at how underrated this series is, as it includes so much that I've heard people wishing for in their High Fantasy!
