Crucible of Chaos

We rated this book:


Not all is well at Isola Sombra, an ancient abbey where monks have worshiped their gods since long before they died. Estevar Borros, one of the king’s legendary magistrates known as the Greatcoats, receives a desperate plea for help from the abbot; the monks have gone mad over claims and rumors of new gods rising.

The investigation begins before Estevar even arrives at the abbey. Armed with only his rapier and a mule that lives up to the name of Imperious, can the legendary Greatcoat solve the mystery before all is lost?

Full of sharp wit, fantastic characters, and elements of supernatural horror, Crucible of Chaos is a fast-paced mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I enjoyed every moment of this book, even the parts that did drag. Estevar, at his core, is an investigator and much of the story is him talking through his theories. Though it was a little boring at times, I enjoyed this, but it’s not for everyone.

The other characters are fun, unique from each other and crazy in their own way. I love the mysterious young woman, who is more than she seems, yet all the clues are laid out if you pay close attention.
