New Arrivals 6-20-18

Summer is here and as expected, the nice weather has led to yard work (maintaining 5 acres is no small task), some much-needed vacation time, and getting projects done, which leaves little time for reading right now. To fill in the gap until I can post my next review, I present the following books, which have arrived and are being added to the growing queue.

After the difficulties I had in finding Ian C. Esslemont’s Return of the Crimson Guard in hard cover, I thought I better go get the others I was missing. The price seems to be getting higher for each title in trying to find a nice, non-library copy…

Being impressed with Will Wight’s House of Swords, I ordered the sequels…

I also picked up the rest of Phil Tucker’s Chronicles of the Black Gate that I have not yet read…

Reading rave reviews about Jonathon French’s The Grey Bastards, which won the Self Published Fantasy Blog Off in 2016, I decided to give it a chance, especially since it was released in hard cover.

Finally I picked up James Islington’s An Echo of Things to Come, the second book in his Licanius trilogy, even though I had not yet read the first book, The Shadow of What Was Lost. The price was just too good to pass up.
