    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 ...

    I love this trilogy!! And I cried a little bit!! I'm trying not to cry any more but these books!! I'm so glad I took a chance on these books and the wonderful characters! Happy Reading! Mel ??? ...

    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...

    Any book that makes me cry deserves more stars than I can give here... This final installment was best of the series imo, I loved how the characters have grown and who they've become. The story was dark and twisted and captured me from the start. I'm sorry I can't read more of The...

    This made me cry at work. I told my workmates that it's just allergies, but we're in the middle of winter so I don't think anyone believed me. Worth it. ...

    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...

    What a beautiful series. The ending is fitting and satisfying. It left me sad and broody. This series is a book about assassins, they are a special kind and the fight scenes are like a dance. There is plenty of disturbing and stabby stabby scenes throughout the book. There is also m...

    King of Assassins is the best book in the series, period. RJ Barker found the right balance between action, dialogue, grit, and mystery. To my liking, the book was much darker than those that came before. The menagerie, particularly, was a horrible delight. If you have gotten this far ...

    This is a good book to end a very good trilogy. I found some similarities between R.J. Barker's style and Robin Hobb. I also drew one or two parallels with Tolkien's 'The Hobbit' (Xus; Girton's mount, was similar to the Elf-king's in the 3rd film). I liked the fact that though ...

    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...

    Phenomenal conclusion to the rich and imaginative Wounded Kingdom trilogy. The story is excellent, the ending bittersweet, and the character development across books (the first taking place in the titular assassin Girton's youth, and this last installment in his middle age) is among th...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    What a beautiful series. The ending is fitting and satisfying. It left me sad and broody. This series is a book about assassins, they are a special kind and the fight scenes are like a dance. There is plenty of disturbing and stabby stabby scenes throughout the book. There is also m...

    King of Assassins is the best book in the series, period. RJ Barker found the right balance between action, dialogue, grit, and mystery. To my liking, the book was much darker than those that came before. The menagerie, particularly, was a horrible delight. If you have gotten this far ...

    It took me 12 days to finish this one...12 days!!!! I confess to doing a lot of skimming the last 150 pages cos else I would still be here after 2 weeks. Something was just not there. I enjoyed the two previous ones, but this one, nah, it felt slow, it dragged, it was a chore and I ...

    This is a good book to end a very good trilogy. I found some similarities between R.J. Barker's style and Robin Hobb. I also drew one or two parallels with Tolkien's 'The Hobbit' (Xus; Girton's mount, was similar to the Elf-king's in the 3rd film). I liked the fact that though ...

    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 ...

    I love this trilogy!! And I cried a little bit!! I'm trying not to cry any more but these books!! I'm so glad I took a chance on these books and the wonderful characters! Happy Reading! Mel ??? ...

    I received an advanced copy of Kings of Assassins in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to RJ Barker and Nazia and Jenni at Orbit. *This may contain slight spoilers for the trilogy* Well, The Wounded Kingdom trilogy. Where should I start? I can safely say in the (almost) two ...

    I received an advanced reading copy in exchange for an honest review. King of Assassins is a beautifully poignant conclusion to a remarkable and superb trilogy. The Wounded Kingdom is so underrated in my opinion; this trilogy spins a captivating and unconventional assassin story ...

    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...

    Any book that makes me cry deserves more stars than I can give here... This final installment was best of the series imo, I loved how the characters have grown and who they've become. The story was dark and twisted and captured me from the start. I'm sorry I can't read more of The...

    This made me cry at work. I told my workmates that it's just allergies, but we're in the middle of winter so I don't think anyone believed me. Worth it. ...

    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 ...

    What a beautiful series. The ending is fitting and satisfying. It left me sad and broody. This series is a book about assassins, they are a special kind and the fight scenes are like a dance. There is plenty of disturbing and stabby stabby scenes throughout the book. There is also m...

    King of Assassins is the best book in the series, period. RJ Barker found the right balance between action, dialogue, grit, and mystery. To my liking, the book was much darker than those that came before. The menagerie, particularly, was a horrible delight. If you have gotten this far ...

    It took me 12 days to finish this one...12 days!!!! I confess to doing a lot of skimming the last 150 pages cos else I would still be here after 2 weeks. Something was just not there. I enjoyed the two previous ones, but this one, nah, it felt slow, it dragged, it was a chore and I ...

    This is a good book to end a very good trilogy. I found some similarities between R.J. Barker's style and Robin Hobb. I also drew one or two parallels with Tolkien's 'The Hobbit' (Xus; Girton's mount, was similar to the Elf-king's in the 3rd film). I liked the fact that though ...

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

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here. The Wounded Kingdom trilogy has grown to be one of the most enthralling excavation of a young assassin?s place in the world as he slowly discovers who he is and what he is capable of whilst protecting those who he loves the most ...

    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. ...

    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...

    Phenomenal conclusion to the rich and imaginative Wounded Kingdom trilogy. The story is excellent, the ending bittersweet, and the character development across books (the first taking place in the titular assassin Girton's youth, and this last installment in his middle age) is among th...

    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...
