Currently Reading: WE CRY FOR BLOOD by Devin Madson
This series has always been one that creeps up on me. I never feel like I’m DEVOURING it, but instead, find myself picking up the book several times a day for quick fixes. So I’m always surprised that even though I only read 20 or so pages at a time, I actually read over 150 pages throughout the day. And then when I finish the book, I keep reaching for it, to keep reading, because…well, I need my fix! WE CRY FOR BLOOD continues the saga of warring nations. With alliances falling apart, and battles being waged at every corner, a handful of people are trying to find a way to defeat the true threat of Leo Villius. Devin Madson manages to perfectly capture the claustrophobia and paranoia that comes with trying to defeat a villain like Leo, it’s absolutely insidious. I’m about 3/4 of the way through, hoping to finish in the next day or two!
Recently Finished THE EXILED FLEET by J.S. Dewes
Wow, wow WOW, book 2 in THE DIVIDE delivered!! This was an impressive follow-up to THE LAST WATCH, and that back half absolutely killed. Whereas book one was all about surviving against impossible odds, book two is looking inwards towards the center of civilization. Rake and Cavalon and a handful of others have to return to the Core to find the supplies necessary to bring the rest of the crew home, and that means Cavalon has to face some uncomfortable memories about his past. Full review is here, but if you enjoyed THE LAST WATCH, you’re in for a treat, and if you haven’t started, do so now!
Probable Next Read: LAST ARGUMENT OF KINGS by Joe Abercrombie
Okay, it’s time to finally cross off my first Abercrombie trilogy! Reading LAST ARGUMENT OF KINGS will mark off another big goal on my Great Series Read, as well as being a backlist series I started AND finished in the same year! I really enjoyed the first two books, looking forward to seeing how it all comes to an end. After that…might be time to dip back into the self-published pile for my self-published read of the month!
