My Choice:

Tyrant’s Throne (The Greatcoats #4) by Sebastien de Castell.


After years of struggle and sacrifice, Falcio val Mond, First Cantor of the Greatcoats, is on the brink of fulfilling his dead King’s dream: Aline, the King’s daughter, is about to take the throne and restore the rule of law once and for all.

But for the Greatcoats, nothing is ever that simple. In the neighbouring country of Avares, an enigmatic new warlord is uniting the barbarian armies which have long plagued Tristia’s borders – and even worse, he is rumoured to have a new ally: Trin, who’s twice tried to kill Aline to take the throne for herself. With the armies of Avares at her back, she’ll be unstoppable.

Falcio, Kest and Brasti race north to stop her, but in those cold and treacherous climes they discover something altogether different, and far more dangerous: a new player is planning to take the throne of Tristia, and the Greatcoats, for all their skill, may not be able to stop him.

As the nobles of Tristia and even the Greatcoats themselves fight over who should rule, the Warlord of Avares threatens to invade. It is going to fall to Falcio to render the one verdict he cannot bring himself to decide: does he crown the girl he vowed to put on the throne, or uphold the laws he swore to serve?

Teaser from page 59:

‘Perfect, ‘Brasti said. ‘Let’s really piss off the Dutchess of Baern, right when we need her most. Unless…’ He paused for a long moment, apparently deep in thought – which, I’ll point out again, is always dangerous – then suddenly grinned at me.

‘What?’ I asked, but I’d already guessed. ‘No. Absolutely not!’

Brasti gestured proudly to Margrave Evidalle’s gaudy – and now empty – wedding barge. ‘Pirates!’ he declared proudly.

  1. Well this sounds like a fun book , I’m curious to learn how this turns out , The cover gives a real 3 musketeer-esque vibe and the quote makes me feel this Greatcoats guys must share a lot of banter

  2. This one sounds like great fun, Drew – it’s a series I’ve had my eye for for a while now. And when I’ve completed a couple more that I have on my TBR pile, I’ll definitely go after it:)

    1. It’s definitely fun, a fantasy version of The Three Musketeers and the banter between the three main characters is outstanding, one of the best things about the series. This is also the last book, so it’s a finished series which is always good and de Castell also seems to get better with each book too.😀
