Melanie's Week in Review - 2 June 2013

My love of The Emperor's Edge series by Lindsay Buroker continued this week. I finished Conspiracy, which was book 4 of the series, book 5, Blood and Betrayal and just started Forged in Blood which is the penultimate book. I even read two of the novellas but liked Beneath the Surface the most and was quite lengthy for a short. 

Each book has alternating POV chapters between the lead character, Amaranthe and one of the secondary characters. Sometimes this can be a bit distracting with the story's focus switching so often.  However, it works well in this series to give the reader a balanced view of what is happening plus you really get to know the secondary characters.

In between this series I read The Eighth Court by Mike Shevdon. Even though I am reviewing this book soon I urge you to get it.  If you haven't read any of the other books in the Courts of the Feyre series then please, please, please get these on your TBR asap! Its a fantastic series and the final book is no exception.

I feel like I didn't accomplish that much this week on the reading front but prepare yourself for a bumper crop of books in my review next week as I am on holiday. I have a whole week with the 'outlaws' in the south of France so its a guarantee that I will get through a few books. Keep your fingers crossed that my Kindle behaves itself because it has been crashing constantly over the last two days. Very, very annoying.

I hope you have a great week and Happy Reading
