Reading Radar – Lore of the Aos Sí, The Stolen, and The Gods are Bastards

All right, it’s time again for what I’m reading & what I think you should be too!

InksharesThe Lore of the Aos Si by Christopher Lee

aos-si

I preorded this book both because Christopher Lee is very active and helpful on Inkshares, and because this book looks cool. The Lore of Aos Si is about a brewing war between Man and Fae in 3002 B.C.E. At first glance, it may seem like there’s a lot of, well, lore and backstory to get through, but the narrative starts right in the action. What I’ve read so far from the previews shows me a well-paced narrative with lots of lore worked into it. I wish the best for the fundraising campaign – you can help make sure this book gets published by pre-ordering here.

JukepopThe Stolen, from The Law Unto Herself Chronicles by Jennifer L. Barnes

This is an urban fantasy that’s very popular at Jukepop, and I decided to check it out and see why. With a huge cast of characters, it can get confusing to follow, but the fast-paced dialogue keeps it moving briskly. I just started in on the first  chapters, and I’ll definitely be reading more this week.

Web SerialThe Gods are Bastards by D.D. Webb

Another serial with multiple characters to follow, and in a humorous story, too. This is labeled as a ‘Fantasy Western’, but even in the first few chapters there are hints of other genres woven into the plot. Each character sees the world in their own way, which makes the characterization stand out wonderfully. Certainly worth a shot!

That’s what’s on my “to-read” list this week!
