Ok lesson learn, it looks like I’m not in a place in life my were I can read a lot, so this month I’m going to take a step back and try not to put too much pressure with reading goals.
I debated with myself if I should add a new book instead of just catching up with the one that I have to carry on from last month. But I decided to add this one which, mark my word, I will probably don’t get to it but lets see… I enjoyed the first book in the The Burning and I was thrilled when I saw it on Netgalley and my request got accepted!
The Fires of Vengeance by Evan Winter
Desperate to delay an impending attack by the indigenous people of Xidda, Tau and his queen craft a dangerous plan. If Tau succeeds, the queen will have the time she needs to assemble her forces and launch an all-out assault on her own capital city, where her sister is being propped up as the ‘true’ Queen of the Omehi.
If the city can be taken, if Tsiora can reclaim her throne and reunite her people, then the Omehi might have a chance to survive the coming onslaught
Didn’t get to finish this one last month so here we are again.
Dead Man in a Ditch by Luke Arnold
Fetch Philips has nothing left to believe in. Which is why he’s surprised when the people of Sunder City start to believe in him…
Rumour has it that Fetch is only one who can bring magic back into the world. So when a man is murdered in a way that can only be explained as magical, Fetch is brought in on the case. A case which just might unearth things best left buried…
This sequel to The Last Smile in Sunder City follows the adventures of Fetch Phillips – a character destined to be loved by readers of Ben Aaronovitch, Jim Butcher and Terry Pratchett’s Discworld
Malice by John Gwynne
A black sun is rising …
Young Corban watches enviously as boys become warriors under King Brenin’s rule, learning the art of war. He yearns to wield his sword and spear to protect his king’s realm. But that day will come all too soon. Only when he loses those he loves will he learn the true price of courage.
The Banished Lands has a violent past where armies of men and giants clashed shields in battle, the earth running dark with their heartsblood. Although the giant-clans were broken in ages past, their ruined fortresses still scar the land. But now giants stir anew, the very stones weep blood and there are sightings of giant wyrms. Those who can still read the signs see a threat far greater than the ancient wars. Sorrow will darken the world, as angels and demons make it their battlefield. Then there will be a war to end all wars.
High King Aquilus summons his fellow kings to council, seeking an alliance in this time of need. Some are skeptical, fighting their own border skirmishes against pirates and giants. But prophesy indicates darkness and light will demand two champions, the Black Sun and the Bright Star. They would be wise to seek out both, for if the Black Sun gains ascendancy, mankind’s hopes and dreams will fall to dust
Ok it’s still 2.5 books for this month (I’m half way through Dead Man in a Ditch) let’s see what will happen…
