I have a confession to make. I very rarely get rid of books from my TBR pile (which explains why I have so many). So, when I saw today’s prompt, I knew that I couldn’t do it. So, I decided to change it up and go with the last 10 books I added to my TBR pile. So, enjoy!! Also, let me know what books you decided to let go (or keep or added to your TBR). I am always looking to add to my already overfull TBR.
Kron Darkbow seeks vengeance, and he plans to have it no matter the costs. Returning to the city of his birth after 15 years, he hunts down the wizard responsible for the deaths of those he loved only to find out another was responsible for the murders. That other is Belgad the Liar, a former barbarian chieftain who is now boss of the city’s underworld.
Following his path for blood, Kron comes across the magical healer, Randall Tendbones, and accidentally reveals Randall’s darkest secret to the world. It’s a secret about the past, a secret that has kept Randall on the run for three years. Now it has caught up with him, and Belgad the Liar is suddenly the least of Randall and Kron’s concerns. The gaze of Lord Verkain, king of the dark northern land of Kobalos, has fallen upon Kron and Randall. And it is a gaze filled with madness.
What I liked about City of Rogues:
The characters. While it took a while for me to connect with them, I found that they grew on you. My favorites were Wyck, Lucius, and Randall.
It is a fantasy novel. I love fantasy novels!!!!!!
What I disliked about City of Rogues:
I wouldn’t say I liked that the book was hard to follow initially. There was another book written before that I didn’t read. It took me a couple of chapters to understand what was happening. A prologue would have been nice.
The ending. It was too abrupt and too pat. Everyone seemed to get together at the right time, and all loose ends were taken care of.
If you liked City of Rogues, you will enjoy these books.
