Sky Of Swords - The King's Blades 3 Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Sky Of Swords - The King's Blades 3

    King Ambrose decides it is time to end the war between his kingdom of Chivial and their enemies Baelmark. The clever monarch also figures that this is an opportunity to rid himself of his ?unnecessary?, constantly meddling daughter Malinda. She will serve as a bridal pawn that will unite the kingdoms by her marriage to King Radgar of Baelmark.

    Instead of a joyous occasion, Radgar assassinates Ambrose. Ambrose?s bastard son Granville claims himself protector and immediately arrests Malinda. The much younger Amby, heir to the throne, dies. With the rescue by her loyal swordsmen, the Blades, Malinda wonders what to do next as her country falls further into chaos.

    SKY OF SWORDS, the third ?Tale of the King?s Blades? is a well written fantasy for those fans who relish an action packed Medieval novel with a touch of magic in the plot. The story line is fast-paced, but repetitive of similar books including the first two novels in this series. Malinda is a fully developed character, but the other key players such as Ambrose and Radgar are difficult to understand. Still, Dave Duncan provides the hard core fantasy fan with an exciting swashbuckler.
