I’ve decided to do Throwback Thursday but blog style. I am going to select a book I have read before and see if I would still read it.
This week’s Throwback Thursday is a dark fantasy.
Date of publication: September 1st, 1992
Genre: Fantasy, science fiction
Book synopsis (from Goodreads):
The Coldfire trilogy tells a story of discovery and battle against evil on a planet where a force of nature exists that is capable of reshaping the world in response to psychic stimulus. This terrifying force, much like magic, has the power to prey upon the human mind, drawing forth a person’s worst nightmare images or most treasured dreams and indiscriminately giving them life. This is the story of two men: one, a warrior priest ready to sacrifice anything and everything for the cause of humanity’s progress; the other, a sorcerer who has survived for countless centuries by a total submission to evil. They are absolute enemies who must unite to conquer an evil greater than anything their world has ever known.
Did I like Black Sun Rising when I first read it? OMG, yes. I had fallen in love with Anne Bishop’s The Black Jewel series. When I saw Black Sun Rising, it called to me. When I read it, I was blown away.
Age I first read Black Sun Rising: early to mid 20’s.
Would I read Black Sun Rising now? Yes. Like I said above, I really liked it.
How many stars would I have given Black Sun Rising back then: 5
How many stars would I give Black Sun Rising now: 4. I don’t give 5’s out as easily as I did when I was younger. Plus, I would have to reread the book to see if it lived up to what I remembered.
