A day late, and a dollar short, as they say, but you’ll have to excuse me. A bad back has kept me away from my computer more than I like, so I’m running behind on everything. But another thing they say is, “better late than never,” right? So here’s Friday’s What Are You Reading post. For better or worse. And that’s entirely enough old sayings for one morning. 🙂
I’m well into D. B. Jackson’s 3rd book of the Thieftaker Chronicles, A Plunder of Souls, and enjoying it nearly as much as the first two. I won’t say it is the best urban fantasy ever, but I will say that Jackson’s mixing of real historical characters from the pre-Revolutionary days of early America, is deft, and a great deal of fun. (Not to be confused with “daft,” which is more what I am on any given day.) I really enjoy our conjurer, Ethan Kaille, as he tries to solve yet another magical assault on the city of Boston, while mixing it up a bit with the likes of Samuel Adams and other names from history. I’ll be reviewing this one in detail later, for sure.
Now it’s your turn, as always. What are you reading this week? Also as always, inquiring minds wanna know.
