Publisher's Summary

He's a paladin of a dead god, tracking a supernatural killer across a continent. She's a nun from a secretive order, on the trail of the raiders who burned her convent and kidnapped her sisters.

When their paths cross at the point of a sword, Istvhan and Clara will be pitched headlong into each other's quests, facing off against enemies both living and dead. But Clara has a secret that could jeopardize the growing trust between them, a secret that will lead them to the gladiatorial pits of a corrupt city, and beyond....

Another outstanding romance

T Kingfisher has become an autopurchase for me anytime she releases a new book. This series of romance novels has very sensible characters who you can’t help rooting for. Her novels often have a darker side and it makes them even more intriguing. We got murderous bandits, a horrible city/state, werebears, berserker paladins, and the undead. I love the fact that her main characters are not teenagers and are more relatable for older adults. Read this as soon as you can. Read all of her books.

Second verse, same as the first

Not sure whatever this brand of romance is called, but I find it excruciating. Less ’slow burn’ and more ’pull each of my teeth, one by one, with no anesthesia, and for no reason’.

I found the endless dithering, interruptions, second guessing, misunderstandings and confusion annoying in the first book. I started to dread getting through this when I saw a similar pattern crop up here. I had a sneak peek at the reviews for the third book, and yeah, seems to be much the same. I honestly can't imagine getting through SEVEN books like this.

Truly a pity, because I do want to know what happens to the actual story elements. Who killed the god? Will the technology from the Clocktaur Wars show up? Are the smooth men gone for good?
The world building is also pretty clever, for what it is. The Warrenmind, for example, desperately needs more screen time.

More creepy rabbits, less awkward fumbling in the dark!

Real, funny and Sweet

I love T. Kingfisher's books and the way that their er protagonists are always real people with a wry sense of humor and feelings and strengths and know who they are. this is probably my favorite of the three paladin books so far. Istvan and Clara are a wonderful match and I love the way the author managed to weave in horror without you really even realizing it.

where is Steven?

I enjoyed the first book in the series. I wanted that story to continue. This is not that story.

Great narration

Although this story has some grim and scary parts, a lot of it is very funny, especially in the hands of this narrator. Recommended if you like wryly-humorous fantasy.

the Adventures of Istvan the mighty

This book just like the previous one is what I imagine what being a Paladin with a dead God would be like. having the survivor's guilt whole carrying on with life to find a new purpose. Beautifully and hilariously written!
