The great war cannot be stopped.

The tyrant Geder Palliako had led his nation to war, but every victory has called forth another conflict. Now the greater war spreads out before him, and he is bent on bringing peace. No matter how many people he has to kill to do it.

Cithrin bel Sarcour, rogue banker of the Medean Bank, has returned to the fold. Her apprenticeship has placed her in the path of war, but the greater dangers are the ones in her past and in her soul.

Widowed and disgraced at the heart of the Empire, Clara Kalliam has become a loyal traitor, defending her nation against itself. And in the shadows of the world, Captain Marcus Wester tracks an ancient secret that will change the war in ways not even he can forsee.

Something about this series keeps drawing me back despite me despising at least half the main characters. But the world building and the mystery of the spider priests fascinate me.

Great book. Great characters. Great dialogue. Great series. Abraham has established himself as my favorite Fantasy writer. The way he writes fantasy and creates a fantasy world is so human and seamless. There is a distinct lack of physical action in this book, and in this series in general, which could turn off some readers. The strength of this book, and the series, is the clever world building and fantastic characters. The series feels fresh and the books fly by leaving me wanting more. I will anxiously await the next installment. I didn't like this book quite as much as the last book because Marcus seemed a bit downplayed and there was less physical action.
