    • I really loved this bookI originally picked this book up simply because it was free and with low expectations. I can't believe how wrong I was. I was drawn in from the first page right till the end. This book is a must read for fans of the genre.


    • Unnecessarily sexual and crude, but the characters were generally well crafted and the plot kept me interested. It worked as a stand alone story too as well as the start of a trilogy. I did get a bit lost two thirds of the way in wondering who was based where and who was on which side though


    • This review is divided into two topics: characters and plot.1. CHARACTERSThe main character, Astul, has a memorable voice, which is consistent through the whole book. He does not water down his thoughts and does not hesitate in describing graphic scenes with as many details as possible. He can be cruel; he’s an assassin after all, but differently from many other characters from this genre, he’s not a person without feelings. The author was able to construct a real person, who fears death, wh [...]


    • I like the book because of the snarky main character and the fact that I am often interested on a thief/spy/assassin's adventures and misadventures. The only problem is that Astel talk way too much inside his head it gets boring sometimes. I think he likes listening to his own voice inside his head. And the author make one paragraph to describe a person or situation when it could have been in just a word or sentence. I skipped a lot of pages. I've read better characters, plot twists, court intri [...]


    • Good storybut it contained a lot of unnecessary crudity. Repetitive use of crude and base language can make or break a story. It also depends on its use, I suppose. But it seemed that a lot of it didn't even need to be included. I'm not sure if I will continue on to the sequel. The jury's still out. If you don't mind such vulgarity then this story will work for you. Me, not so much.


    • Couldn’t finish this book. It was slow, a lot of uninteresting parts, and the writing was not for me. I was really excited when I read the synopsis, but it seemed that that was the best part of the book.




    • Loved the sense of humor and witty thoughts. Was a bit disappointed with the main characters lack of talents. Good story line, easy to read.



    • Wow, out of nowhere comes Justin DePaoli. Let me tell you people- this guy has some talent! I have read almost all of the big names on the epic fantasy shelves (over 200 books devoured in the last 2 years alone) and was pleasantly surprised when I took the chance to read. This series is best described as a blend of Joe Abercrombie, Mark Lawrence, and Scott Lynch. It is gritty, funny-as-hell, has tons of surprises and is all from a single narrative of now one of my favorite characters. Justin rea [...]


    • AnnoyingI don't like many books where the character's well character is already set and defined because then the book becomes predictable. There are some authors that I have read that have made it work however. Not this one. Also the author tries to build him up to be this awesome guy, but he makes so many obvious mistakes it's annoying. The only plot twists we got came from completely new, to the reader, creatures or information. It got predictable. Suddenly something bad happens, it's fixed, t [...]


    • DNF. The plot jumped all over the place giving the sense of a somehow very small world or that time moved really quickly. There doesn't seem to be enough important descriptions of what's going on but there's a lot of description about trivial stuff that doesn't contribute to the story. For example (view spoiler)[he spent all of like 2 days in a prison over 3 pages. (hide spoiler)] I felt the author tried to make it dark fantasy story and forgot to build the world more.


    • Very dark fantasyI would give this an almost 4. It's a very good story if you like dark fantasy, lots of violence, some humor and coarse language. The book is well written, with a good plot and it moves quickly. I will try to read the next book but will take a breather before I do.


    • More of a 4.5 Right from the start you are thrown into a gritty, intense world of assassins, royalty, and conjures. The story is told by Astul, shepherd of the Rot. He is dark, funny, raw, foul-mouthed, smart and despite his occupation, you get attached. Vayle and all of the other characters hold their own as well.


    • The highlight of this book is definitely the writer's dialogue between characters, it was often very amusing. Unfortunately character and world descriptions need a bit of work as well as story progression.


    • This is the first book by Justin DePaoli I've read what a find enjoyed it from start to finishHaving an assassin as the hero was a bit of a change looking forward to book 2


    • Predictable with enough grammatical errors to annoy me. I also found the attitudes of the professional assassins painful.
