#bookreview: The King's Sword | CJ Brightley

The King's Sword (Erdemen Honor, #1)The King's Sword by C.J. Brightley
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It's an okay enough story - prince escapes an assassination attempt, fearsome but outcast soldier helps put him on the throne.

I like the worldbuilding - it's very colourful and complex and quite interesting.

I just didn't feel like the story itself engaged me very much, like it doesn't quite pull the reader in. The last battle was also a little anticlimactic.

Caveat: read this in several disjointed sessions while travelling so maybe I didn't have the focus to fully engage.

This is July's stretch goal from the 2023 Booktempter's TBR reduction challenge!
