This week for Bookish Wednesday I’m covering the third entry in the Realm of Arkon series. It’s Steel Wolves of Craedia by G. Akella!
Plot Synopsis: The flames of war spread through the Cursed Princedom to devastating effect. Bound by powerful centuries-old magic, the Great Essences yearn to regain their freedom. In the face of an impossible mission, Krian has no choice but to keep going, while risking everything that’s become dear to him. The only solution is to become stronger and forget the meaning of the word “impossible.” And so a plangent wolf’s howl soars over the battlefield as a plate-clad cavalry rushes the enemy ranks…
Plot: The plot of this third entry is really intense, although there are some light moments. Like with Bonbon, who is a never-ending source of hilarity. This book focuses more on Krian and his growing band of companions that have to deal with the entire province of Craedia and the monsters that live within. That being said there is a portion of the book that focuses on Max and his friends as they level up in the realm of Karn.
Characters: We get introduced to quite a few new characters, all of them quite good. That being said Bonbon is still just too awesome, although Krian still is great as well, Bonbon might just become my favorite side character in the entire series.
Overall: If you enjoyed the first two, you’ll love this third entry.
