Escape To A Place Far, Far, Away


'The Dawn Star' by Catherine Asaro. After the lead up from the previous novel, I was looking for a culmination of the previous stories in this one. Although she did a great job in exposing the emotions felt by Cobalt and Mel, I feel like she fell short in completing these events - unless she has another novel planned. We never really hear about Mel's parents again and the other members of her family, except for a new look at Drummer, who hadn't been mentioned since the first novel. I can understand that this novel is mainly centered around the journey that Mel has to undergo, but it would have been interesting if the other mages that we had come to love through these stories made a final appearance in this novel. I enjoyed this story, but it just seemed anti-climatic in its ending.

'Cursor's Fury' by Jim Butcher. To me, Cursor's Fury by far is the best Butcher has written. Throughout the book clues are given as to the course of Tavi's life, but they are in no way spelled out for you. The book makes you think and keeps the plot turning. I will only read once and then never set eyes on again, but for a few special books I place on my shelves as keepers. Cursor's Fury by Jim Butcher has definitely earned a spot on my keeper shelf. Oh, I must clarify that I'm talking about my electronic Book shelf! Check below for the Coupon Code to receive a Discount on either of these two eBooks.

The Dawn Star eBook edition by Asaro, Catherine
High in the Misted Cliffs lives a magic unlike any other. With no teacher to guide her, no mentor to discourage her from the impossible, Mel Dawnfield pushed her magic to its limits -- and surpassed them. Only to find that her powers aren't enough to halt burgeoning rebellion within her husband's fledgling realm -- or a plot devised to strike at the very heart of Mel's family.

Cursor's Fury eBook edition by Butcher, Jim
The power-hungry High Lord of Kalare has launched a rebellion against the aging First Lord, Gaius Sextus, who with the loyal forces of Alera must fight beside the unlikeliest of allies - the equally contentious High Lord of Aquitaine. Meanwhile, young Tavi of Calderon joins a newly formed legion under an assumed name even as the ruthless Kalare unites with the Canim, bestial enemies of the realm whose vast numbers spell certain doom for Alera.
