|Broken Blade (The Rune Blade Trilogy, Book 3)|
Date: 01 February, 1997 — Book
We're back to first-person with this one, from the point of view of one of Kian's granddaughters. (Kian himself is still alive at this point, still the canniest of all of his line.) The tale is a little distracted because the teller is a little over-emotional, which of course is what makes her interesting. She lives through the breaking of Celi, and has to help a small group escape from the clutches of blood sorcery while all but overwhelmed by the death of her prince and the severing of the magic bond between them.
I need to get the next trilogy together, because it's not very nice to leave the good guys in smoking ruin. It really isn't.
