“Once a fabled Blade of Namara, Aral Kingslayer fought for justice and his goddess alongside his familiar, a living shadow called Triss. Now with their goddess murdered and her temple destroyed, they are among the last of their kind. Surviving on the fringes of society, Aral becomes a drunken, broken, and wanted man, working whatever shadowy deal comes his way. Until a mysterious woman hires him to deliver a secret message-one that can either redeem him or doom him.”
This series (I’m on the second book now) has interesting, fleshed-out female characters. You can tell the author thinks of men and women as equal, and considers them as individual people first. I love the character of corrupt city guard Fei. I’m glad she has a bigger role in the second book & I look forward to reading more about her! I also love the relationship the main character has with his goddess, Namara, who stood up to the other gods to fight for justice.
