I’m sitting here, petting my vicious dog, enjoying a nice cup of Earl Gray, and reading book two in Robin Hobbs Farseer Trilogy. You can feast your worthless eyes on the finished review for book one in the series Assassins Apprentice a few posts below. I decided to post in the middle of my reading to share how much I love this series. Every chapter I finish inches this series closer and closer to the top of my favorite Fantasy mountain. It’s a dark, brooding, complex, character driven plot that bounces from exciting action to contemplative heartbreak. Trust me, you want to read it along with me.
Most importantly the first book in the series is on sale in the Kindle store for $1.99 and the whole trilogy is on sale for 13 bucks. Click on the picture and buy it!
In other news trolling through r/fantasy I came across a link advertising Joe Abercrombie’s The Blade Itself for $1.99. This is supposed to be one of the founding novels in the Grimdark sub-genre and one I have been wanting to read for awhile. I couldn’t resit the $1.99 price and the fact that it’s about some sort of badass barbarian and crippled torturer. As soon as I finish The Farseer Trilogy I will divert myself into the world of Logan Ninefingers and Inquisitor Glokta. So just like above, if you are in need of a read both of these books are really cheap right now.
This has been my good deed for the month, enjoy.
