Stephen's god died on the longest day of the year…

Three years later, Stephen is a broken paladin, living only for the chance to be useful before he dies. But all that changes when he encounters a fugitive named Grace in an alley and witnesses an assassination attempt gone wrong. Now the pair must navigate a web of treachery, beset on all sides by spies and poisoners, while a cryptic killer stalks one step behind…

It was fun! And so satisfying to realize how a lot of subtle setups paid off near the end.

I love a romance where you get to see both characters' point of view, and even more if they're in their thirties, because they have a different approach to relationships than teenagers (also, I'm the same age as Stephen). The book was maybe a little heavy on the self-deprecating inner monologues, but this is me quibbling.

Onto Paladin's Strength now!
