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…
Orb, Sceptre, Throne
Being impressed with Will Wight’s House of Swords, I ordered the sequels…
The Crimson Vault
City of Light
I also picked up the rest of Phil Tucker’s Chronicles of the Black Gate that I have not yet read…
The Siege of Abythos
The Iron Circlet
The White Song
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.
