Blood Lance

Why this book?:

This is the next book in the series.


As usual, I enjoyed this book.  Every once and awhile the description would get to be a bit much about the relic and that sort of thing, and I zoned out a little.  But overall it was interesting.  

I found the idea of a knight with PTSD interesting.  I understand why it was handled the way it was in the book - to reflect what likely would have happened in history - but it was a little sad, too.  

Crispin is so lucky that even in his "misfortune," he has so many people willing to help him.  And of course he made some of that luck for himself, such as when he managed to snag Jack who is a great character.

As for the mystery side of things - Crispin had quite a few connected mysteries to solve this time around, which made things interesting.

I look forward to reading the next book, Shadow of the Alchemist.
