Time for a book review/recommendation! These were the first reason I joined the blog, but I’ve been very poor in keeping up with it.
The Deathsniffer’s Assisant is an old-fashion murder mystery splashed with magic and flavored by interesting characters. I highly suggest it, and here I will try to explain why. If I succeed is another thing altogether.
I’m going to be talking about Radiant: The Towers Trilogy by Karina Sumner-Smith. Radiant is the first and only book out of the trilogy at the moment, with the next slated for May.
(Radiant) is greatly out of my normal reading comfort zone. As I’ve said on the blog before, I’m strictly fantasy. I’m going to have trouble talking about it a tad, not sure of the right terms mostly. Also I’m not verse on the genre, so my view may not be the best. So forgive me if I stumble in talking about it. BUT, because I’ve read it and enjoyed it so much – excited for the next one, it did something special surely to break into my comfort zone.
Anyways, let’s talk about it.
I know I promised my first book review for Friday. But, as I warned, I have a number of distractions. Funnily enough this one being reading books itself. So here is a post and story about a recent book series I read through. I read the first and second book of this series awhile ago. Recently the third book came out and I decided to re-read the first two and then go right into the third. This was made easy by the fact an omnibus edition came out with all three books in one ebook. So I read it as one larger book in one go.
The series is known as the The Amra Thetys Chronicles. The three books currently out for it are: The Thief Who Pulled on Trouble’s Braids, The Thief Who Spat in Luck’s Good Eye, and The Thief Who Knocked on Sorrow’s Gate. Now personally just the titles interested me enough to read them. (For anyone interested, the first book is free in most e-book stores) So, let’s talk about them.
This is akin to another part of introducing this series of posts called Reader’s Madness. Last time I gave an overview of what kind of posts there will be, today I will give you an idea on what kind of books I read. Thus what kind of books I will be reviewing. As I said last time, I’m not the most varied of readers. So here we go.
It has been awhile since Wolfie announced that I was joining the blog. Sorry for the wait. I haven’t wrote anything semi-serious for public eyes in a long time. I also tend to either get sick a lot or sleep too little/too much. So it took awhile to get myself to sit down and commit to writing a blog post. I lacked focus. Hopefully this gets easier.
But enough about my worries, welcome to my Reader’s Madness.
