Reading the final book in a series can be like saying goodbye to a friend who’s moving on to pasture’s new. As much as you’ll miss them, you know they have to go. That’s what it felt like when reading Tyrant’s Throne, the last book in The Greatcoats quartet. Written by Sebastien De Castell, the book follows Falcio Val Mond’s struggle to fulfil his dead king’s dream of bringing justice to Tristia. Falcio is more determined than ever to put Aline, the daughter of King Paelis on the throne, but he faces his greatest challenge yet. Here is my spoiler free review.
The final book in The Greatcoat series, Tyrant’s Throne, is out soon, and I’ve been putting the main characters in the spotlight. Falcio Val Mond is the leader and strategist, Brasti is the glue that keeps them together and Kest is the born fighter. Kest Murrowson is the most practical member of the trio and at the start of the books he was the greatest swordsman in the world.
With Sebastien De Castell’s Tyrant’s Throne coming out on the 20th April, I’m doing character spotlights on the three Greatcoats. Today, I’m focusing on Brasti, the most irreverent of the trio. Brasti is my second favourite character in the series and his quips make up some of the funniest moments in the books. But underneath his sarcasm and arrogance, there’s more to him than meets the eye.
In literature, there are certain characters that stay with you from the moment you start reading about them. Sebastien De Castell’s Greatcoat series is full of them. With the release of Tyrant’s Throne on the 20th April, I’ve decided to do a character spotlight on each of the three Greatcoats, Falcio, Brasti and Kest. For those who haven’t been introduced to the series, it’s a mixture of the Three Musketeers meets Game of Thrones. There’s blood, violence, witty comments and no shortage of swashbuckling. Let’s start with the protagonist, Falcio Val Mond.
