2017 came out, guns blazing, and introduced a ton of new voices to the fantasy/grimdark landscape, becoming the “Year of Debuts”. Orbit knocked it out of the park with several phenomenal debuts, a few of which are on my Top Reads of 2017 list, and lead the way to 2018 (which will probably be know as the “Year of Sequels”).
If you haven’t had a chance to read some of the novels in this list, check out my reviews and see if any of them grab your interest. Maybe you received some Xmas money for bookish purposes and choose to give one or more of the books a chance. I can guarantee you will not regret any choice. Let me know what you think!
