If you haven't yet picked up this riveting and unique series, I highly recommend you do
If you want a gripping, well written and brilliant fantasy series, you got it.
I can't remember the last time I read such a consistently good series as The War for the Throne. Characterisation in these books is phenomenal. Each is flawed, many are brutal, but you can't help but feel an affinity for them. McLean's prose keeps you reading, as you hang out for the next revelation and revel in each glorious set-piece
An author at the top of his game
Dark and full of menace, McLean's War for the Rose Throne belongs on the shelf of any fan of gritty fantasy
Dark, gritty, brutal fantasy with the heart of a gangster family drama and the page-turning pace of the best crime fiction, it's just SO good!
A page-turner, a gripping story
An absolute humdinger of a series. Tomas Piety is probably one of my favourite modern fantasy creations. He is such a compelling, flawed but noble character. The story and the culmination of the saga are deeply satisfying
Priest of Crowns is an absolute page-turner, and through the last 80%, I literally sat on the edge of my seat. Peter McLean brings the War for the Rose Throne series to a gut-punching end, one that will be remembered for a long time coming. One of the best books of 2022 for sure. Praise be to Our Lady
Phenomenol! A grim, powerful story that's full of tension . . . the powerful, explosive conclusion to the series. A series that has consistently impressed at every turn
Tomas Piety's swansong is everything you could hope for
A bold, explosive conclusion with a real gut-punch of an ending
McLean has crafted a remarkable story with a distinct voice on the state of modern politics, and a cast of colorful, vibrant characters that brought the story to life. Unputdownable
Written with the momentum of an avalanche
