reviewed Empire's Ruin by Brian Staveley (Ashes of the unhewn throne, #1)

Brian Staveley: Empire's Ruin (Paperback, 2022, Pan Macmillan) 5 stars

A way different feeling book than the previous books

5 stars

This book is set some years after The last mortal bond, and it is the first book in a new trilogy. There are repeat characters from his earlier books as well as some totally new ones, the amount of character development some of the characters go through is extremely large when compared to his previous books and I like it. Even if I don't necessarily always like the way the character develop is it mostly rooted in reasons that's understandable. The world is expanded quite a lot in this book and we learn even more of the history of it. And I'm really looking forward to see how things will play out in the next books. I think that most people would enjoy the book, and I think quite a few people will like this book even if they disliked the earlier books by Brian Staveley
