I received an ARC copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Having read the two previous books in this series, I can safely say that Pride of Empires is the absolute best yet. In this book, not only to we get a deeper look inside the psyche of the characters, we also go further into the politics of the story. It's intricately weaved to wrap around your mind and draw you in.
I want to say a lot, but with this being a third book, I am afraid to give spoilers.
I will say that I love how these characters grow and change in each book, becoming more themselves and revealing themselves to us. These books always have great plots, but I believe it is the characters that really drive the story here.
5/5--an excellent book!
