Peace Talks  Ashes of the Sun  Voice of WarOathbringer

Currently Reading: PEACE TALKS by Jim Butcher
As of writing this post, I’m anxiously peering out my window waiting for a delivery truck to show up with my shiny hard copy of PEACE TALKS.   I’ve passed on a few chances to grab an eARC because I wanted my first experience with this to be with the actual book in my hands.  I’ve been waiting literal years for this release, and I’m looking forward to snuggling up on the couch with my favorite wizard detective.

Recently Finished: ASHES OF THE SUN by Django Wexler and VOICE OF WAR by Zack Argyle
Finally finished the adventure ASHES OF THE SUN, which is the kind of book that mixes a bunch of elements together and comes up with something wonderful.  It pulls from both sci-fi and fantasy, has two storylines heading on a collision course, and features some truly disturbing monsters.  Look for a review in the next week!  Then I decided to squeeze in my self-published read for the month, VOICE OF WAR  This high fantasy had an intriguing set-up and a visually appealing magic system, but after a strong start it fell apart a bit in the back half of the book. Overall a good read, but some caveats to come.

Probable Next Read: OATHBRINGER by Brandon Sanderson
At long, long last, it’s time for me to complete THE STORMLIGHT ARCHIVES.  Well, complete it until book four releases in the fall.   I might have to skim re-read WORDS OF RADIANCE a bit, as reading EDGEDANCER last month reminded me of how much lore I’ve forgotten since I read the book last year.  Clocking in at 1200+ pages, I expect this is going to take up most of the rest of July, but if I don’t make time for it now, I never will. Sorry ARC pile, you’ll need to wait!
