Book Recommendations – The Dragon’s Path by Daniel Abraham (2011).

This looks like it could be a good book in a good series. From reading the blurb it looks like I may have to add this to my reading list. It may hold a really good adventure within it’s pages.

Something worth checking out!

All paths lead to war…

Marcus’ hero days are behind him. He knows too well that even the smallest war still means somebody’s death. When his men are impressed into a doomed army, staying out of a battle he wants no part of requires some unorthodox steps.

Cithrin is an orphan, ward of a banking house. Her job is to smuggle a nation’s wealth across a war zone, hiding the gold from both sides. She knows the secret life of commerce like a second language, but the strategies of trade will not defend her from swords.

Geder, sole scion of a noble house, has more interest in philosophy than in swordplay. A poor excuse for a soldier, he is a pawn in these games. No one can predict what he will become.

Falling pebbles can start a landslide. A spat between the Free Cities and the Severed Throne is spiraling out of control. A new player rises from the depths of history, fanning the flames that will sweep the entire region onto The Dragon’s Path-the path to war.

Book Review: Covet, by J. R. Ward (2010).

Blurb.

Redemption isn’t a word Jim Heron knows much about – his specialty is revenge and, to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. And failure is not an option.

Vin Di Pietro long ago gave himself up to his business – until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking, Harley-riding, self-professed savior, and a woman who makes him question his destiny. With an ancient evil ready to claim him, Vin has to work with a fallen angel not only to win his beloved over…but to redeem his very soul.

Review.

Another great novel from J. R. Ward, but instead of Vampire’s we are looking at Fallen Angels, which may or not be related to Lassiter, of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. This book delves into the life of Jim Herron, and finds a man who is very much on the run from a hidden organisation that he both fears and hates, and has also gone AWOL, even though in doing so has written his own death sentence.

This first novel of the Fallen Angels series, gives readers their first look at the great fight between good and evil, and how Jim will participte in the war. J. R. Ward’s fantastic storyline that merges her unforgettable sense of humour, and storyline twists, with some characters who I feel I could continue to read about again in the future. So far so good, I think that this could be another great series.

Overall, I enjoyed this novel somewhat less than the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, maybe due to my bias love for the Vampire genre, or maybe because it just doesn’t have the same X-factor I felt reading the previous series. Further reading will solve this however, and I am looking forward to reading the next novel. I recommend this novel to anyone who likes the fantasy fiction genre and like myself enjoys J. R. Wards fantastic writing! I give this book a rating of 7/10 stars.
