15. The Cardinal’s Blades



The Three Musketeers with dragons.  Well, sort of dragons. Half-bloods. And the dragons, or some of them, want to gain a foothold in France. So Cardinal Richelieu reactivates his best group of spies, his Blades, who had been dismissed in disgrace 5 years ago.


But it’s clear Richelieu is holding back on the Blades, and they’re a bit less trusting after being betrayed by one of their own.

I really love the concept. The start is a bit slow, as there is too much getting the band back together, with cuts from one person to another as they all receive their summons back to the Blades.

Still, I’m eager to read the next book.
