it was a bit too long and boring in places, a bit too bogged down with politics but overall still a great fantasy book.

Honestly pretty useless.

Didn't get any use out of this. Didn't even finish listening to the whole thing.
They said the word in English once, and then in Japanese twice. Don't go through the pronunciation properly, don't go through how to use words in a sentence. Nope, just straight into multi syllable words that are difficult to say at the best of times, let alone when you're trying to repeat after a recording while the recording cuts you off to say the next word, without even giving you time to see or find out if you were right.

Going to return this one.

The Blood of Kings is a well written and well paced book, with plenty of fan service to those of us who play the tabletop game.
The novel is mainly about Captain Allister Caine and his misadventures and botched assassination attempts. Having not read any of the other books about Caine specifically, I found it very interesting to see the Warcaster represented in the novel so heavily, and am very excited to play him more in my tabletop games as well as to see what the future holds for the character.
Seacat needs a better editor. There was a few times where a particular character narrowed both of his eyes when he actually only has one (hint hint). And there was a few too many instances of He did this while he did something else to him, while talking about two different male characters. It lead to unnecessary confusion, but I still enjoyed the novel on the whole.

Highly recommended to fans of the tabletop game but I would still give it the thumbs up to anyone looking for a steampunk action fantasy book.
