Lord Regent Geder Palliako's war has led his nation and the priests of the spider goddess to victory after victory. No power has withstood him, except for the heart of the one woman he desires. As the violence builds and the cracks in his rule begin to show, he will risk everything to gain her love - or her destruction.

Clara Kalliam, the loyal traitor, is torn between the woman she once was and the woman she has become. With her sons on all sides of the conflict, her house cannot stand, but there is a power in choosing when and how to fall.

And in Porte Oliva, banker Cithrin bel Sarcour and Captain Marcus Wester learn the terrible truth that links this war to the fall of the dragons millennia before, and that to save the world, Cithrin must conquer it.

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
