Publisher's Summary

How do you kill a Saint?

Falcio, Kest, and Brasti are about to find out, because someone has figured out a way to do it and they've started with a friend.

The Dukes were already looking for ways out of their agreement to put Aline on the throne, but with the Saints turning up dead, rumors are spreading that the Gods themselves oppose her ascension. Now churches are looking to protect themselves by bringing back the military orders of religious soldiers, assassins, and (especially) Inquisitors - a move that could turn the country into a theocracy.

The only way Falcio can put a stop to it is by finding the murderer. He has only one clue: a terrifying iron mask which makes the Saints vulnerable by driving them mad. But even if he can find the killer, he'll still have to face him in battle.

And that may be a duel that no swordsman, no matter how skilled, can hope to win.

inspires me to acts of valor

multiple characters voiced with a keen ear to who they are.
the story has intense, well defined fight scenes. Wonderful schemes and solving puzzles. comic relief. this story moves quickly, leading me directly through 1, 2, and now 3. I'm ready to download #4.

Epic & Best Yet

This is a remarkable series, & gets better with each book. Joe Jameson does a fantastic job across the series, with every character, male, female & diety alike. Please keepbwriting, and narrating gentlemen.

Additionally, I find it refreshing that Sebastien de Castell not only acknowledges his real- life “greatcoats”, but does it so sincerely and with such genuine feeling. So glad his work came across my radar.

In love with this series

This is probably one of my newest favorites of all time. I've binged these books. I still have the fourth left but I can't put it down.

These novels have snark, loss, laughter, love, growth. There is just so much to them. Thr narrator does a superb job. If you are a fan of Lord of the Rings and the Kingkiller Chronicles, you will love this series.

great except Falcio changed

it was good overall but Falcio changed from a hero-ish character to a whimpering coward. I think he got some new balls at the very end, hopefully he keeps them in the next book.

Favorite So Far

The thing I loved so much about Traitor's Blade, the first book in this series, was the humor and sense of adventure. Knight's Shadow, book two, seemed to lose a little of that in the beginning before picking up steam, but Saint's Blood shoots out the gates with a return of the fun and adventure that made me love this series in the first place. The hilarious banter between Falcio, West, and Brasti, was a welcome return to the series, and Saint's Blood turned out to be my favorite book so far.

The narration from Joe Jameson continues to be perfect for this series. I am excited to move on to book 4.
