New on the bookshelf

The Dragon’s Path - Daniel Abraham
Malice - John Gwynne
Shadow of Night - Deborah Harkness
Bones of the Hills - Conn Iggulden
The Wise Man’s Fear - Patrick Rothfuss
Poison Study - Maria V. Snyder
Magic Study - Maria V. Snyder
Fire Study - Maria V. Snyder

 So I took a trip to Manchester this week, and this is what I came home with. I’m particularly excited about my acquisition of The Wise Man’s Fear, as I recently read The Name of the Wind [you can read the review here] and have been looking forward to the sequel ever since.

The Maria V Snyder trilogy isn’t something I’d usually pick out for myself. I recently read several glowing reviews of her work, however, and so when I saw the first three of the Chronicles of Ixia in The Works, I couldn’t resist. Especially since they were on a ‘3 for £5’ offer!

I picked The Grim Company simply because it reminded me of Glen Cook’s The Black Company series, which I love. I picked the others because . . . well, because I’m a sucker for an attractive book cover, and the Gwynne and Abraham novels are very attractive indeed!
