As a lifelong book lover, I’ve read so many books that many of the books I read now remind me of books I’ve read before. Today I’ll be talking about all the books The Last Shadow Knight by Michael Webb reminds me of.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I’ll be honest, I haven’t finished The Name of the Wind. But I read enough to know Kvothe was a thief during his childhood, so my mind automatically thought of this one while reading The Last Shadow Knight because Veron was a child thief as well. Both experiences were heartbreaking for me, but, as far as I can tell, things swing up for both Veron and Kvothe.
The Dragon’s Banker by Scott Warren. This is the book that dominated my thoughts while reading The Last Shadow Knight. Described as a slice of life kind of story, The Dragon’s Banker definitely is, and I loved how it was centered around banking and trade. The Last Shadow Knight is, in many ways, traditional fantasy, but also has such a strong focus on business and commerce that I couldn’t help but draw parallels. Bonus: they’re both incredibly fun reads!
The Frozen Crown by Greta Kelly. Well, I wasn’t a fan of The Frozen Crown for many reasons, but I kept thinking of this one because it also involves an invading bloodthirsty king. I think the one in The Frozen Crown is much more dangerous and villainous, but the one in The Last Shadow Knight is more complex and overall interesting.
