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 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).
