Although I haven’t read the first 2 books in the Sapphire Chronicles, Mandrean Revenge was not difficult to pick up. I found it very easy to pick up the thread of the story and understand the characters, specifically Linvin.
This book is filled with excitement, suspense and intrigue from the first page, and is well enough written for me to be able to imagine the scenery and the feelings of the characters. I loved the relationship between the Necromancer and Linvin’s uncle especially and that between the Necromancer and Lord Mandrean made me laugh on more than one occasion.
The characters are very well presented throughout, especially those new to the series, who are well described and very believable.
Overall a great book for anyone. Enjoy
NB I received this book free for an honest review.
