Hm.. after reading most of the comments in here, I think I might buy this trilogy next…

What actually is a ‘Cardinal’ though?

From what I get from the books the Cardinal is like, say, the Prime Minister, though in the opening lines it says that he is the City and the City is him. In the books though he is a leader just referred to as The Cardinal. And I’d advise definitely buying them, or your local library (:

Ah, so he’s like a fictional Prime Minister Leader, with a bit more creativity and spiced up a bit with slightly more power and mysteriousness? Something like that?

It is not just violent, there are a few sexual themes present throughout the book.

Basically there are strong violent and sexual themes through out and you might want to think of the Cardinal more as a dictator rather than Prime Minister. :p
