Currently Reading: SEVEN BLADES IN BLACK by Sam Sykes
It took me a few chapters before I suddenly realized that somehow I was reading a dark fantasy with chocobos in it. You know, those fluffy ostrich birds from Final Fantasy? Their grittier cousins are the mount of choice in the Scar, the war-torn region between two warring nations where the dregs and rejected of society hang out. In this region rides Sal, a woman who’s living as a bounty hunter, who has recently gotten wind of the location of a group of mages who betrayed her in the past. If you want to know the tone of the book so far, consider that it is a revenge tale with chocobos, with a queer heroine wielding a magical gun named the Cacophony and a regular sword named Jeff.
Recently Finished: ROSEWATER by Tade Thompson
I had a lot of mixed feelings about ROSEWATER, which I will get into in my full review later this week. There were aspects I loved, and aspects I found really hard to get into, especially as the author I felt was too vague at times about certain concepts or mysteries. But the book ends by lifting the veil, so to speak, on what the real conflict is in the trilogy, and I find myself willing to continue because I think there’s a chance I may actually enjoy book two more than book one. Plus, a side character of ROSEWATER will be the lead in THE ROSEWATER INSURRECTION, and I have a suspicion I will enjoy her more than deliberately unlikeable Kaaro.
STORM OF LOCUSTS by Rebecca Roanhorse
When this ARC arrived in the mail, I very nearly dropped everything to read it. Now, the time at last has come to read the sequel of one of my favorite reads of 2018, TRAIL OF LIGHTNING! This book comes out later this month, and I’m really hoping that I will love this and tell you all to go buy it!
