The Bone Witch
I don’t remember how I came across The Bone Witch by Run Chupeco. The book blurb made me curious and the beautiful book cover was a plus. But when I started reading it, I had to find out what happens next. And just like that, I had finished three books within a week.
The Shadow of the Gods
If you enjoyed The First Law series by Joe Abercrombie, then you will also love The Shadow of the Gods. It is also a gritty and dark novel that centers around gods and people that are descendants of these gods. The writing and plot make this a fun novel and a world that in unlike anything else.
