What I’ll be reading over the Christmas break:
And the other books in the trilogy, The Way into Magic, and The Way Into Darkness. Epic fantasy isn’t normally my bag of cheese, but I loved Harry Connolly’s Twenty Palaces books, and I’m excited to see where he goes with these.
I’m equally interested in the novel A Key, An Egg, An Unfortunate Remark which he included for Kickstarter backers:
A Key, An Egg, An Unfortunate Remark is not your standard urban fantasy. Instead of a twenty-something ass-kicker, the protagonist is a party-loving socialite in her mid-sixties. It’s also a thriller with a pacifist hero, set in a contemporary fantasy world in which the most dangerous enemy you can have is a smart, resourceful human being.
Reviewish things will follow.
