Bloody Rose (The Band #2) 05, Dec

3.5/5

I was a huge fan of Nicholas Eames' KINGS OF THE WYLD and wasn't alone in my fandom. The combination of a traditional Dungeons and Dragons' esque high fantasy story with THIS IS SPINAL TAP was such an electric combination that it topped a lot of the "Best of 2017" lists, including my own. About it's only competition that year, in my opinion, was THE GREY BASTARDS and KINGS OF PARADISE.

The Lost Voice (The Chronicles of Jaydur #1) 19, Nov

THE LOST VOICE is a high fantasy novel which follows the adventures of Caia Foriei as she is summoned to assume the mantle of her divine ancestor after the "The Voices" are murdered. She is hunted by the sinstarian and anyone else who will bring back the Voices. Caia ends up banished to another universe, which screws over Jaydur badly, and she must rely on a man named Archai to restore her memory as well as bring light back to Jaydur.

Devil's Night Dawning (Broken Stone Chronicle #1) 14, Nov

4.5/5

DEVIL'S NIGHT DAWNING by Damien Black is a dark fantasy story set in a European-esque setting afflicted by demons, a generational blood feud, and a young woman who discovers running away from an arranged marriage is not as easy in the story books. This was a highly entertaining read and I found it to be one of my favorites of 2018. The book did have some criticisms but it's a solid piece of fantasy straight from the independent circuit.
