FUNDAY MONDAY, OR THE BOOKS THAT WILL HELP ME SURVIVE THE WEEK AHEAD (APRIL 24, 2017)

funday-monday

Another 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 promise of a new year and the continuation of the regular grind, deep down, I’m not, so I’m going to escape dreary reality by reading some great books.

This week I’ll be finishing off my books from last week. (Behind again.  *sigh*) Then I get to start the third installment of a series I’ve been waiting to read.

Revenge. It’s something Sigrud je Harkvaldsson is very, very good at. Maybe the only thing.

So when he learns that his oldest friend and ally, former Prime Minister Shara Komayd, has been assassinated, he knows exactly what to do and that no mortal force can stop him from meting out the suffering Shara’s killers deserve.

Yet as Sigrud pursues his quarry with his customary terrifying efficiency, he begins to fear that this battle is an unwinnable one. Because discovering the truth behind Shara’s death will require him to take up arms in a secret, decades-long war, face down an angry young god, and unravel the last mysteries of Bulikov, the city of miracles itself. And perhaps most daunting of all finally face the truth about his own cursed existence.

Purchase the book at Amazon.

      I hope so as well. Bob’s review over at Beauty-in-Ruins did cause me a bit of concern. Hoping I’ll enjoy it more than he did. 🙂

        I’ll be curious to see what you both think of it. It wasn’t bad, and I probably would have liked it a lot more as a 2nd book, but City of Blades set expectations for me, and this went a different way.

    Finished City of Miracles last week and really liked it! I didn’t think it was quite as good as the first two, but probably because it didn’t play out how I expected.

    I finished it up yesterday and just dropped a review. I enjoyed it a lot. City of Blades was my favorite so neither book quite hit me the same way but i really liked it.
