It is that most horrible of times: Monday. The day I have to put my big boy suit on and jump back on the corporate escalator to nowhere. But while my body languishes in my office, the books I’m reading will help my mind escape the boredom and be transported to amazing new worlds where people do actually change the world.
So without any further explanation, here are the books I will be reading this week.
THE LASCAR’S DAGGER (THE FORSAKEN LANDS #1) by GLENDA LARKE
Saker appears to be a simple priest, but in truth he’s a spy for the head of his faith. Wounded in the line of duty by a Lascar sailor’s blade, the weapon seems to follow him home. Unable to discard it, nor the sense of responsibility it brings, Saker can only follow its lead.
The dagger puts Saker on a journey to distant shores, on a path that will reveal terrible secrets about the empire, about the people he serves, and destroy the life he knows. The Lascar’s dagger demands a price, and that price will be paid in blood!
THE WHITE TOWERS (THE RAGE OF KINGS #2) by ANDY REMIC
Vagandrak is broken, and a new threat has arisen that threatens to defeat even the mighty Iron Wolves.
The twisted, deviant Elf Rats have gathered in the toxic realm beyond the White Lion Mountains… swiftly they invade the troubled land of Vagandrak, killing for profit and pleasure.
The now-disgraced Iron Wolves are the realm’s only hope, but there’s a problem: they’ve been sentenced to death by the insane King Yoon for the dark sorcery in their blood.
In the mountains of Zalazar lie the White Towers, pillars of legend said to contain the Heart of the Elves. The Iron Wolves must journey north to steal the Heart, and purify the evil in the land, but the land belongs to the Elves – and they won’t give it up without a fight!
So what are you going to be reading? 🙂
