Book Description Orion , London, Condition: New. Seller Inventory The King's Assassin contains so much stuff that I really do not want to spoil it, but it moves very well and you cannot stop turning the pages. There are some little logic miscues here and there - as Berren and others really should realize some stuff rather than act sullen for a while and later surprised at the bloody finale and the last third of the book covers a lot of time and events in a very condensed "one battle is as another" way, but the book works well and has narrative power with an ending that wraps things up while opening new avenues for the future.
Also there are many tidbits scattered around about the author's world that add to its depth and promise a lot for further volumes and the geograph y of the author's universe expands considerably. In some ways, The King's Assassin is so different from the first two to seem as being from another series, a much darker, bloodier and more adult one; and in the author's noted style, the novel has almost no get out of jail cards, characters die and no one is safe The King's Assassin is highly recommended and a top 25 of mine as the clear best of the three Thief-Taker's Apprentice novels and also arguably the author's best at least since his still awesome debut The Adamantine Palace though I have not yet read The Black Mausoleum as of now.
