The work week begins. I quickly slip into my business suit and head back into the office to save a few innocent people. But while I try to fool myself into being excited about the grind, deep down, I’m not, so I’m going to escape dreary reality by reading some great books. And I’m especially excited this week, as I get to return to one of my favorite series of the moment: Seven Forges!

Andover Lashk has finally come to accept his destiny and prepares to journey back to Fellein. The Sa’ba Taalor continue their domination over each country and people they encounter, but the final conflict is coming: The Great Wave of the Sa’ba Taalor stands to destroy an empire and the Silent Army prepares to stop them in their tracks.
Caught in the middle is the Fellein Empire and the people who have gathered together on the final battlefield. The faithful and the godless, the soldiers and killers alike all stand or fall as old gods and new bring their war to a world-changing end. Some struggles are eternal. Some conflicts never cease. The Gods of War are here and they are determined to win.

The series has had some amazing covers.
A Whisper of Southern Lights sounds fascinating: I’ve recently discovered historical fantasy and I love the combination of known historical periods with fantasy and/or other genres so I will be adding this one to my list. Thanks! 🙂

I’m just getting into that sub-genre too, and it is definitely a different flavor I’m finding that I enjoy. 🙂
