What I’ve Been Reading:

While I was home sick with Covid, I binged N.K. Jemisin’s The Inheritance Trilogy (plus novella), that moved into this house with me.

Yeine Darr is an outcast from the barbarian north. But when her mother dies under mysterious circumstances, she is summoned to the majestic city of Sky. There, to her shock, Yeine is named an heiress to the king. But the throne of the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is not easily won, and Yeine is thrust into a vicious power struggle.

The Inheritance Trilogy omnibus includes the novels: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, The Broken Kingdoms, The Kingdom of Gods, and a brand new novella set in the same world: The Awakened Kingdom.

New Works By Previous Guests:

Peter Servido has a new novel out! (affiliate link)

Dekker De La Mare (The Chronicles of Dekker De La Mare #1)

Dekker De La Mare was born a sickly child with little chance to live. Thanks to the intervention of the Pixie Queen, the baby who was not to be has become the Archmage of Odious. Come experience his power!

After more than twelve hundred years of acting as the protector of the world of Odious, Archmage Dekker De La Mare has been responsible for defeating many evils and saving countless citizens. Yet, for all the good he has done there have been casualties along the way.

Will the deeds of his past be enough to save his future?

Picture(s) of the Week:

It was a 4th Friday, so I hit my local writer’s open mic night: Spilled Ink, and shared September and A Dream of Stars. Masked up, keeping my barely-over-Covid germs to myself.
