Starting this month, I will be reading 1 book off my owned TBR that is picked by my friends and followers. If you would like to pick something you can see this list of books I own and submit your choice here. This month is a classic that I haven’t yet gotten a chance to read.
Akar Kessel, a weak-willed apprentice mage sets in motion events leading to the rediscovery of the magical device, the Crystal Shard. But is it merely an inanimate device… or is it capable of directing the defeat of Ten-Towns?
Or have the barbarians already arranged for that themselves? Their brutal attack on the villages of Ten-Towns seals their fate, and that of the young barbarian Wulfgar. Left for dead, Wulfgar is rescued by the dwarf, Bruenor, in exchange for five years of service… and friendship. With the help of the dark elf, Drizzt, Bruenor reshapes Wulfgar into a warrior with both brawn and brains.
But is Wulfgar strong enough to reunite the barbarian tribes? Can an unorthodox dwarf and renegade dark elf persuade the people of Ten-Towns to put aside their petty differences in time to stave off the forces of the crystal shard?
Of course I also have my Realms Reads book, which I am super excited to read. Homeland is one of my favorite fantasy books but I’m ashamed to admit I have not read the Icewind Dale trilogy. I’ve heard really great things and I love the character Drizzt so I’m expecting to really like this.
Is today a good day to die?
Death – a walking skeleton armed with a scythe, a rider of the apocalypse, it has always been assumed – is a man that brings the souls of the dead to wherever they are destined to go.
But what if we got that wrong? What if he were a ghost that, instead of moving your soul on silently after you had died, actually did the hard part for you?
Death has to die, again and again, to pay for his sins, and to free trapped souls before their bodies perish – only to replace those souls, to die for them.
A Death whose existence is a curse, where the other riders of the Apocalypse are not his allies, but his enemies.
Armed only with his morals, his memories and the advice of a child teacher, Williams, a Sadeiest, travels through the deaths of other people, on his way to becoming something greater. Something that will re-define the Grim Reaper.
Death just came to life, in time to fight for a child hunted by the other horsemen of the Apocalypse.
How do you want to die today?
The last book on my November TBR is this paranormal horror novel that sounds really intriguing. I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing this for the blog tour and answered with an exciting yes! Keep an eye out for my review, and if you are interested in picking it up for yourself it releases on November 27th.
Last but certainly not least I would like to announce the winner of my 25 follower giveaway! Congratulation to Donna at PigpenReads, be sure to check your email so you can let me know what your choice for the prize is.
