Well, it is probably a good thing that I am planning on a bit of a site redesign, since I was playing around with things yesterday and managed to completely delete all of the custom features I had made over the blog since the beginning. Fonts and layout and widgets on the side were all gone. After I got done swearing and hyperventilating at the same time, I managed to get most of the things back to some version of normal. Most. Can I find the feature that will let you sign into WordPress? No. Fonts? Weird. Meh, bear with me.
Anyways, on to my pick of the week. Granted, there isn’t a ton to chose from this week, but I have been looking forward to Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet, which tied for first place in the book of the month poll. I was surprised by how well it did, since I figured it would come quite a ways down the list after Feversong, Eleventh Grave and Power Game, but then hype surrounding the series has been building for a while now.
SHE’S DESTINED TO DESTROY THE WORLD…
“Cat” Catalia Fisa has been running from her destiny since she could crawl. But now, her newfound loved ones are caught between the shadow of Cat’s tortured past and the threat of her world-shattering future. So what’s a girl to do when she knows it’s her fate to be the harbinger of doom? Everything in her power.
BUT NOT IF SHE CAN HELP IT
Griffin knows Cat is destined to change the world-for the better. As the realms are descending into all-out war, Cat and Griffin must embrace their fate together. Gods willing, they will emerge side-by-side in the heart of their future kingdom…or not at all.
I so have to go back and skim the ending of the first book again, since I honestly can’t remember what happened at all. I did grab this one for my ipad, but I won’t be able to dive in for a few days. It will be interesting to see if reviews are universally positive, or if they are a bit more divided like Doug Meeks (review HERE). Which side of the line did you fall on for this second book of The Kingmaker Chronicles?
