The city is crumbling beneath a mountain of its own indulgences. Its army abuse the castle’s servants, confident that deadly wielders have been exterminated; wars are fought to encourage otherwise absent mortality; countless people suffer from the terrible pangs of nalka, the hunger for intimacy; and all the while its king concerns himself with choosing which of his disappointing concubines to execute next. The duty falls upon his emotionally withdrawn son, Morghiad, to restore the city’s strength and the army’s purpose. In his attempts to do so, he uncovers darker horrors and encounters a young servant who could either be his greatest ally or his greatest hindrance.

City of Blaze is a story of changing allegiances, self-control and love.

***Judith, #NerdGirlPlatypire’s Review***

First of all, I would like it known that I tend to chew on my lip when I am immersed in something enthralling. The point being, this book ended up costing me money to read it – because I needed chap stick! I won’t go into details, but just know this… I had no idea how many hours had gone by while I was reading this.

I loved this book. The world H. O. Charles created was amazing, and the characters were not ones I will easily forget. I can’t think of a way to explain it without pretty much quoting the entire book or giving away spoilers. Just trust me when I say, you will not be disappointed when you read it.

I will say this though, I wish I could give it 5 stars. I really like it, and I would love to read more from this series. That being said, it is in need of editing. It isn’t horrible, but it has a considerable amount of typos (mostly failure to hit space bar after a period) that would take me out of the story from time to time.

I have pretty much told everyone they need to check out this book. I’ve even brought it up over dinner with my family and friends, because I found it that enjoyable. I haven’t done that with a book in a long while. Even with that issue, I was so impressed with this book that it gets 4/5 platypires.
