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. So in anticipation of this most horrid of days, I found myself browsing the Amazon Kindle store on Sunday, getting my reading material in order. (I’m really not that organized, but I wish I was.) And since I like to try out a few indie fantasy novels every year, I found myself reading about the fantasy stories by author D.P Prior, whose novels sounded interesting and whose reviews peaked my interested, so I downloaded a couple books and will try him out this week.
So without any further explanation, here are the books I will be reading this week.
SWORD OF THE ARCHON by D. P. PRIOR
Plague strikes the city of Sarum, and the dead rise from their graves. The liche, Dr. Cadman, has discovered a long-hidden artifact and perverted its power for his own selfish ends. But an ancient evil from beyond the stars is drawn by its use and turns hungry eyes upon the Earth. These are the times of Unweaving, the times Deacon Shader has been prepared for since the day he was born. A man of prayer, deeply troubled by a contradictory faith, he is also the deadliest warrior of his generation. As events spiral out of control, and Creation itself hangs by a thread, the paradox at the heart of Shader’s life may just be the last desperate hope of all the worlds
THE NAMELESS DWARF by D. P. PRIOR
The dwarves have gone!
Thousands have been slaughtered in the blood-drenched streets of their ravine city by one of their own wielding a demonic axe.
The survivors have fled beyond the mountains, heading into a realm haunted by the nightmares of a twisted god.
When Nils Fargin, son of an underworld boss, is hired to find them, he travels with his client to seek the advice of a lowlife mage. With what he learns, he should have asked for more money.
The trail leads them to the domain of the terrifying Ant-Man, who is rumored to eat the flesh of anyone refusing to pay his toll.
And as if that wasn’t enough, it turns out Nils’s client is none other than the Nameless Dwarf, better known to his kind as the Ravine Butcher.
So what are you going to be reading? 🙂
