King Of Ashes by Raymond E. Feist ($17.98)
The first volume in legendary master and New York Times bestselling author Raymond E. Feist’s epic heroic fantasy series, The Firemane Saga—an electrifying tale of two young men whose choices will determine a world’s destiny.
For centuries, the five greatest kingdoms of North and South Tembria, twin continents on the world of Garn, have coexisted in peace. But the balance of power is destroyed when four of the kingdoms violate an ancient covenant and betray the fifth: Ithrace, the Kingdom of Flames, ruled by Steveren Langene, known as “the Firemane” for his brilliant red hair. As war engulfs the world, Ithrace is destroyed and the Greater Realms of Tembria are thrust into a dangerous struggle for supremacy.
As a Free Lord, Baron Daylon Dumarch owes allegiance to no king. When an abandoned infant is found hidden in Daylon’s pavilion, he realizes that the child must be the missing heir of the slain Steveren. The boy is valuable—and vulnerable. A cunning and patient man, Daylon decides to keep the baby’s existence secret, and sends him to be raised on the Island of Coaltachin, home of the so-called Kingdom of Night, where the powerful and lethal Nocusara, the “Hidden Warriors,” legendary assassins and spies, are trained.
Years later, another orphan of mysterious provenance, a young man named Declan, earns his Masters rank as a weapons smith. Blessed with intelligence and skill, he unlocks the secret to forging King’s Steel, the apex of a weapon maker’s trade known by very few. Yet this precious knowledge is also deadly, and Declan is forced to leave his home to safeguard his life. Landing in Lord Daylon’s provinces, he hopes to start anew.
Soon, the two young men—an unknowing rightful heir to a throne and a brilliantly talented young swordsmith—will discover that their fates, and that of Garn, are entwined. The legendary, long-ago War of Betrayal has never truly ended . . . and they must discover the secret of who truly threatens their world.
The back of the book presented some acclaims for the author, Raymond E. Feist.
Aside from a sneak about the story via the dust jacket, the endpaper also presented us with a map.
If you love Game of Thrones, you will also find it in your heart to love this story. There are five kingdoms, but four of them violated a covenant and betrayed the fifth kingdom. This is the first book from the new trilogy, and this story sets up the stage really well for the next ones.
It’s another read that you will never put down until you finish it. The characters were nicely done, and the story is really exciting.
The Return by Joseph Helmreich ($4.02)
During a live television broadcast on the night of a lunar eclipse, renowned astrophysicist Andrew Leland is suddenly lifted into the sky by a giant spacecraft and taken away for all to see. Six years later, he turns up, wandering in a South American desert, denying ever having been abducted and disappearing from the public eye.
Meanwhile, he inspires legions of cultish devotees, including a young physics graduate student named Shawn Ferris who is obsessed with finding out what really happened to him. When Shawn finally tracks Leland down, he discovers that he’s been on the run for years, continuously hunted by a secret organization that has pursued him across multiple continents, determined to force him into revealing what he knows.
Shawn soon joins Leland on the run. Though Leland is at first reluctant to reveal anything, Shawn will soon learn the truth about his abduction, the real reason for his return, and will find himself caught up in a global conspiracy that puts more than just one planet in danger.
Equal parts science-fiction and globe-hopping thriller, Joseph Helmreich’s The Return will appeal to fans of both, and to anyone who has ever wondered… what’s out there?
The nice words and awesome brief reviews from known authors convinced us to give this book a shot!
The story is about a scientist that was abducted, and after several years returned, but he doesn’t want to reveal what really happened to him.
What happened drew more attention from cultish devotees, especially with a young physics graduate, who soon joined the abducted scientist o the run from a secret organization.
As he joined the scientist, he will discover much more, like a global conspiracy that puts not just one planet in danger. This Sci-Fi story is quite thrilling!
It’s a nice selection of books! One takes us to different kingdoms, and the other left us wondering what’s really out there in space! Both have thrilling stories. They offer a good mystery that would make you want to finish everything immediately because you’re too curious about what really happened. The book picks from this subscription are always potential favorites, so us bookworms are always happy!
