Ashes of the Sun  The Crow Rider  CharmcasterOathbringer

Currently Reading: ASHES OF THE SUN by Django Wexler
I’m starting this book today, so no opinions yet.  Wexler has been on my list to check out for a few years now, so I’m curious to see how this goes!  It’s a gorgeous cover, and the prospect of a post-apocalyptic fantasy is intriguing.  Two siblings are on opposite sides of two factions hunting for a magical relic from a long ago civilization, as civil war looms on the horizon.  Fingers crossed on this one!

Recently Finished Reading: THE CROW RIDER by Kalyn Josephson and CHARMCASTER by Sebastien de Castell
It’s always nice when you have back-to-back great reads! First up was my ARC of THE CROW RIDER, an excellent finale to THE STORM CROW duology, with magic, sieges, and giant crows being ridden into battle.  I ended up liking this one more than the first book, so if you’re looking for a magical companion series to blitz through, check this one out!  Then with my monthly TBR done early, I tackled CHARMCASTER, third book in the SPELLSLINGER series.  These books are just so much FUN, and I frequently find myself unable to put them down, they just move so easily. Already have book four in my cart to order!

Probable Next Read: OATHBRINGER by Brandon Sanderson or ???
With ASHES OF THE SUN coming it at 500+ pages, I’m going to see how long it takes me to finish before I select my next read.  I suspect I’ll decide it’s time to start OATHBRINGER and knock that out early this month, but we’ll see how I’m feeling!  I might try to slip in a palette cleanser between these epic fantasies, as I frequently like to switch up genres when I’m reading.  Tune in next week!

  1. Just read The Book of Phoenix by Nnedi Okorafor – the imagination and inventiveness of this author is astonishing. Now started the sequel, Who Fears Death, which I read a couple of years back but was eager to return to since finishing the prequel. I’m loving being back with Onye.

      1. I haven’t got to the Binti books yet. That’s something to look forward to. Have also read Akata Witch and Akata Warrior, which are ace.

  3. I’m reading Ashes of the Sun toooo~ And so far it’s really good! I’m a little over a third through it, but I don’t think you’ll have much trouble getting into it! Hopefully!
