The final battle draws near, in the concluding volume of Daniel Abraham's critically acclaimed Dagger and Coin series

Lord Regent Geder Palliako's great war has spilled across the world, nation after nation falling before the ancient priesthood and weapon of dragons. But even as conquest follows conquest, the final victory retreats before him like a mirage. Schism and revolt begin to erode the foundations of the empire, and the great conquest threatens to collapse into a permanent war of all against all.

In Carse, with armies on all borders, Cithrin bel Sarcour, Marcus Wester and Clara Kalliam are faced with the impossible task of bringing a lasting peace to the world. Their tools: traitors high in the imperial army, the last survivor of the dragon empire and a financial scheme that is either a revolution or the greatest fraud in the history of the world.

Review quote

This smart, absorbing, fascinating military fantasy, exciting and genuinely suspenseful, will keep readers on their toes

The King's Blood is the real deal, and cements Abraham's new series as one of the best new fantasy series in recent years. If you're looking for something to read while you wait for the next George R. R. Martin book, Abraham's the Dagger and the Coin is sure to satisfy

Absolutely massive recommendation as my favourite adult book of the year so far, my favourite fantasy book for many years and the best adult series I'm currently reading by a long way
