My goodness... leaves the reader utterly gasping for air as the protagonists battle their way through what intrigue throws their way. Villains and heroes, saints and sinners, war and more war, lost and found love. Never a dull moment. And then, just as the reader reaches an important climax and turn of events the book ends! What!! No more!!
Can't wait for the third book. The grand finale is much anticipated.
Huge well done Marthese Fenech. The wait was well worth it.
Please Ms. Fenech don't stop.
Could not put them down after the first couple of pages.
As with its predecessor, Falcon’s Shadow is clearly painstakingly researched. Every little detail feels authentic and Fenech does not shy away from the gory details of life before sanitation.
Part of what makes it feel so real is the dialogue. Unlike a lot of historical fiction that employs a formal speech pattern to suggest antiquity, this trilogy allows its characters to talk in a way that balances anachronism with realism. It’s extremely compelling.
Fenech excels at a number of different narrative facets, but for me, I was particularly engrossed by three aspects. The first is her characters: the good, bad, and morally gray are all equally interesting. The second is the engrossing battle scenes. The third is the deep critique of systematic power structures and how they affect even those who try to distance themselves.
If you enjoy impressively researched history, realistic characters for whom you root and despair, and a story that dries out your eyes from compulsive reading, get Falcon’s Shadow.
