    4.5/5 stars I honestly can?t believe I almost didn?t pick up this trilogy; King of Assassins was a superb finishing touch to The Wounded Kingdom. Bloody, poignant, intense, heartwarming, tragic, and dark; I finished this entire trilogy within six days, I just didn?t expect ...

    5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/09/10/... Holy crap, this book. THIS DAMN BOOK. I?m not crying, you?re crying. Seriously, I can?t even. I?m a mess. A quivering, sobbing mess. Everyone one of these Wounded Kingdom books has been a boatload ...

    Another very solidly good book from RJ, and I must admit a very satisfying ending to a series I have greatly enjoyed. I found myself drawn back into this world easily, despite it having been a little while since I read the previous two. I love the fact that over the three books in this...

    King of Assassins is a great conclusion to a brilliant series! Taking a page from the previous books, King of Assassins shows us Girton evolving into a man. While the first book was about innocence - his childhood - and the second was a whiny & angsty Girton - a teenager, the th...

    Brilliant, tragic, heart-wrenching closure to a formidable series. ...

    I love a good tragedy. This is a phenomenal finale. ...

    Full review is here on my blog!~ It?s all lead to this one. This review is going to be a bit difficult to word in a way that is not going to spoil anything that was revealed in Age of Assassins, or further revealed in Blood of Assassins but I will do my level best to not be spoile...

    As always this review can also be found on my blog The Tattooed Book Geek: https://thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress... I suffered a burnout reading fantasy after the start of the year and stepped away from the genre indulging in my growing liking for the crime genre (thrillers/mystery)...

    King of Assassins by R.J. Barker is the final book in The Wounded Kingdom series and a thrilling tale of murder, betrayal, magic, broken friendships, sibling rivalry and so much more. It picks up roughly 15 years after the Blood of Assassins and for a change we find Girton and Merela i...

    Thanks to Hachette Audio and Libro.fm for an ALC of ?King of Assassins (The Wounded Kingdom #3)? in exchange for an honest review. Receiving this ALC in no way influences my thoughts or opinions on the novel, author, or narrator. The Wounded Kingdom is, to date, one of the BEST ...

    4.5* - an excellent conclusion to what has been a great trilogy and an extremely underrated series/author. Can not wait to meet the author soon and find out what is next in store for them. ...

    Incredibly satisfying! Review to follow... ...

    The last book of The Wounded Kingdom trilogy has arrived, and the good news is that our assassin?s story ends with a bang not a whimper. Strap yourselves in, things are going to get emotional. King of Assassins begins with a significant time jump. Though he still accompanies Merel...

    Read this review and more at Book Geeks Uncompromised! A huge thank you to Orbit for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! Fifteen years after the events of Blood of Assassins , a plague has swept through the Wounded Kingdom leaving many dead, including ...

    A great end to a great series. In some ways the three books stood alone but the threads going right back to the start all lead to the dark ending. A book that even managed to make me shed a small tear, somewhere up there with the death of Dobby. Girton is an odd hero. Hes not perfect...

    So closes the tale of Girton Club-Foot, Death?s Jester and Chosen of Xus. All the threads have come together to weave this magnificent tapestry that is known as The Wounded Kingdom trilogy. King of Assassins has not only landed on the list of my favorite reads of the year, but is als...

    What a trilogy! There were tears and there were cheers reading this supremely satisfying conclusion to the Wounded Kingdom trilogy. Thank you R.J. Barker I will miss Girton Club-Foot, his friends and, of course, Xus! ...

    Girton, oh Girton. This final book in the trilogy wraps up everything. It is full of surprises, twists, moments of joy and sorrow, it brings things full circle, pulls a few rabbits out of the hat and secrets that were buried are revealed. I'm being vague about the story on purpose beca...

    I received this novel from Orbit Books through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review: my thanks to both of them for this opportunity. King of Assassins is without doubt the best installment in a trilogy that was both an amazing discovery and an engrossing read from the very be...

    Absolutely brilliant ending to a wonderful trilogy. Wonderful characters who have grown and changed since the first book, with all the baggage, age and life bring especially for an assassin to the king. Lots of intrigue, twists, backstabbing etc. Faultless series ...

    Absolutely incredible wonderful climax to the trilogy. ...

    A excellent novel first and foremost and a satisfying ending to the series. Honestly, until the last chapter I was afraid it was going to end with a "and they lived happily ever after" type post-script. But that ending. Wow. Excellently done. ...

    I picked this up from the library yesterday afternoon and finished it this morning. A wonderful ride, full of twists and turns, unexpected developments and events which test Girton as never before. A worthy conclusion to the trilogy which I couldn't put down. Highly recommended. ...

    A 4.5 starrer What a truly wonderful book. A fitting end to a truly wonderful trilogy. While in a way, the book and the series does imitate Robin Hobb's Farseer series, in no way does it fail to live up to those standards and is a very welcome addition to the lines of Farseer As ...

    King of Assassins is a great conclusion to a brilliant series! Taking a page from the previous books, King of Assassins shows us Girton evolving into a man. While the first book was about innocence - his childhood - and the second was a whiny & angsty Girton - a teenager, the th...

    A excellent novel first and foremost and a satisfying ending to the series. Honestly, until the last chapter I was afraid it was going to end with a "and they lived happily ever after" type post-script. But that ending. Wow. Excellently done. ...

    I picked this up from the library yesterday afternoon and finished it this morning. A wonderful ride, full of twists and turns, unexpected developments and events which test Girton as never before. A worthy conclusion to the trilogy which I couldn't put down. Highly recommended. ...

    A 4.5 starrer What a truly wonderful book. A fitting end to a truly wonderful trilogy. While in a way, the book and the series does imitate Robin Hobb's Farseer series, in no way does it fail to live up to those standards and is a very welcome addition to the lines of Farseer As ...

    The last book of The Wounded Kingdom trilogy has arrived, and the good news is that our assassin?s story ends with a bang not a whimper. Strap yourselves in, things are going to get emotional. King of Assassins begins with a significant time jump. Though he still accompanies Merel...

    A great end to a great series. In some ways the three books stood alone but the threads going right back to the start all lead to the dark ending. A book that even managed to make me shed a small tear, somewhere up there with the death of Dobby. Girton is an odd hero. Hes not perfect...

    So closes the tale of Girton Club-Foot, Death?s Jester and Chosen of Xus. All the threads have come together to weave this magnificent tapestry that is known as The Wounded Kingdom trilogy. King of Assassins has not only landed on the list of my favorite reads of the year, but is als...

    What a trilogy! There were tears and there were cheers reading this supremely satisfying conclusion to the Wounded Kingdom trilogy. Thank you R.J. Barker I will miss Girton Club-Foot, his friends and, of course, Xus! ...

    Girton, oh Girton. This final book in the trilogy wraps up everything. It is full of surprises, twists, moments of joy and sorrow, it brings things full circle, pulls a few rabbits out of the hat and secrets that were buried are revealed. I'm being vague about the story on purpose beca...

    I received this novel from Orbit Books through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review: my thanks to both of them for this opportunity. King of Assassins is without doubt the best installment in a trilogy that was both an amazing discovery and an engrossing read from the very be...

    Absolutely brilliant ending to a wonderful trilogy. Wonderful characters who have grown and changed since the first book, with all the baggage, age and life bring especially for an assassin to the king. Lots of intrigue, twists, backstabbing etc. Faultless series ...

    Absolutely incredible wonderful climax to the trilogy. ...

    A excellent novel first and foremost and a satisfying ending to the series. Honestly, until the last chapter I was afraid it was going to end with a "and they lived happily ever after" type post-script. But that ending. Wow. Excellently done. ...

    I picked this up from the library yesterday afternoon and finished it this morning. A wonderful ride, full of twists and turns, unexpected developments and events which test Girton as never before. A worthy conclusion to the trilogy which I couldn't put down. Highly recommended. ...

    A 4.5 starrer What a truly wonderful book. A fitting end to a truly wonderful trilogy. While in a way, the book and the series does imitate Robin Hobb's Farseer series, in no way does it fail to live up to those standards and is a very welcome addition to the lines of Farseer As ...

    An absolutely perfect conclusion to the Wounded Kingdom trilogy. I loved the setting of the Tired Lands, and there?s a depth and richness to Barker?s writing that really brings it to life. Girton is one of those people you alternate between wanting to hug and wanting to slap throug...

    Another very solidly good book from RJ, and I must admit a very satisfying ending to a series I have greatly enjoyed. I found myself drawn back into this world easily, despite it having been a little while since I read the previous two. I love the fact that over the three books in this...

    King of Assassins is a great conclusion to a brilliant series! Taking a page from the previous books, King of Assassins shows us Girton evolving into a man. While the first book was about innocence - his childhood - and the second was a whiny & angsty Girton - a teenager, the th...

    Brilliant, tragic, heart-wrenching closure to a formidable series. ...

    I love a good tragedy. This is a phenomenal finale. ...

    Full review is here on my blog!~ It?s all lead to this one. This review is going to be a bit difficult to word in a way that is not going to spoil anything that was revealed in Age of Assassins, or further revealed in Blood of Assassins but I will do my level best to not be spoile...

    King of Assassins by R.J. Barker is the final book in The Wounded Kingdom series and a thrilling tale of murder, betrayal, magic, broken friendships, sibling rivalry and so much more. It picks up roughly 15 years after the Blood of Assassins and for a change we find Girton and Merela i...

    4.5/5 stars I honestly can?t believe I almost didn?t pick up this trilogy; King of Assassins was a superb finishing touch to The Wounded Kingdom. Bloody, poignant, intense, heartwarming, tragic, and dark; I finished this entire trilogy within six days, I just didn?t expect ...

    The last book of The Wounded Kingdom trilogy has arrived, and the good news is that our assassin?s story ends with a bang not a whimper. Strap yourselves in, things are going to get emotional. King of Assassins begins with a significant time jump. Though he still accompanies Merel...

    A great end to a great series. In some ways the three books stood alone but the threads going right back to the start all lead to the dark ending. A book that even managed to make me shed a small tear, somewhere up there with the death of Dobby. Girton is an odd hero. Hes not perfect...

    So closes the tale of Girton Club-Foot, Death?s Jester and Chosen of Xus. All the threads have come together to weave this magnificent tapestry that is known as The Wounded Kingdom trilogy. King of Assassins has not only landed on the list of my favorite reads of the year, but is als...

    What a trilogy! There were tears and there were cheers reading this supremely satisfying conclusion to the Wounded Kingdom trilogy. Thank you R.J. Barker I will miss Girton Club-Foot, his friends and, of course, Xus! ...

    Girton, oh Girton. This final book in the trilogy wraps up everything. It is full of surprises, twists, moments of joy and sorrow, it brings things full circle, pulls a few rabbits out of the hat and secrets that were buried are revealed. I'm being vague about the story on purpose beca...

    I received this novel from Orbit Books through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review: my thanks to both of them for this opportunity. King of Assassins is without doubt the best installment in a trilogy that was both an amazing discovery and an engrossing read from the very be...

    Absolutely brilliant ending to a wonderful trilogy. Wonderful characters who have grown and changed since the first book, with all the baggage, age and life bring especially for an assassin to the king. Lots of intrigue, twists, backstabbing etc. Faultless series ...
