The Emperor's Blades - Brian Staveley

Finally! A new book that I find exciting! YAY! It has a mystery, politics, weird stuff going on, I'm so on board.

 

That first part. I still don't get it. This morning I was thinking about it, and I had to turn back to the first page to make sure that it was in the same book. It'll probably make sense later on, but now I'm puzzled by it.

 

I'm so glad this isn't like Red Rising. I'm actually interested in what happens to the siblings.
