The Ruin of Kings (A Chorus of Dragons #1) 19, Jan

The Ruin of Kings is a bold and awe-inspiring work. It rattles the bones as it imprints upon the senses battles for the human soul and for ancient kingdoms. Behold a literary maelstrom that will devour you whole. 

Spellslinger (Spellslinger #1) 12, Jan

Spellslinger by Sebastien De Castell is a little bit like an Old West spin on Harry Potter. It’s got the thrills of a Marvel movie, the intrigue of a Brent Weeks novel, and a pinch of paradoxical post modern sincerity to make it all mean something. It’s a dang good time to boot. 

Chasing Graves (Chasing Graves Trilogy #1) 10, Jan

 

Chasing Graves masterfully combines gallows humor, deep word building, and compelling character centric narratives into a surprising and intriguing story. It dares to answer the question: How valuable is your life when you’re already dead?
