The Thirteenth Hour (The Cruel Gods #1) by Trudie SkiesDisclaimer: I am reviewing for Before We Go Blog on their SPFBO 8 team, and this book is in our pile, however this review does not reflect the opinions of BWG Synopsis When the saints fail, the sinners step up. Cruel gods rule the steam-powered city […]
I want to thank MacMillan Audio for the advanced copy of the audiobook via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
I am not sure what I was expecting going into this read but I was beyond surprised and thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish.
This post will wrap-up each of the books I read, but I’ve also already written Goodreads blurbs and will be posting up Amazon reviews too. Amazon especially is such an important platform for Indie/Self-Pub authors so if you’re not posting reviews on Amazon, I highly recommend doing so at least for the Indie reads. Also these are in order that I read them, not in order I preferred them. All of these books were incredible and I continue to be blown away by each self-pub book I read.
A huge thanks for Trudie for reaching out the community for help with the cover reveal! Since I finished book #1, The Thirteenth Hour, I’ve been so excited to get more.
A huge thank-you to Escapist Book Tours for setting up and running another amazing tour. They have a home page for all of the amazing reviews being posted here as well as an associated giveaway (US only).
I am so happy to be a part of this tour. I, like many others, were first exposed to L.L. MacRae’s writing through her SPFBO 7’s semi-finalist The Iron Crown. I was immediately hooked and needed more so when I saw she was re-releasing Moroda, I knew I had to get in on this tour. […]
A bit of background, Book of the Ice takes place in the same world as one of Mark Lawrences’ previous trilogies: Book of the Ancestor. I have read Book of the Ancestor as well as two other trilogies from Mark Lawrence: The Broken Empire and The Red Queen’s War.
Synopsis England, 1882. In Victorian London, two children with mysterious powers are hunted by a figure of darkness —a man made of smoke. Sixteen-year-old Charlie Ovid, despite a lifetime of brutality, doesn’t have a scar on him. His body heals itself, whether he wants it to or not. Marlowe, a foundling from a railway freight […]
Today we have a Guest Post from the author of Dust of Moth’s Wing tour with Escapist Tours. I was immediately drawn into the unique race that the author created and wanted to dig a bit deeper into that with this question! First a bit about the book and the author though, I highly encourage […]
Synopsis The Chosen One is Dead. Disabled since childhood, his little sister never expected the weight of a crown. Now, she might lose it before ever sitting on the throne. Beset by rebels, scheming politicians, and cutthroat bankers, Elenor must choose between accepting her father’s despotic rule or risking everything for her late brother’s lofty […]
Hello Hello! I’m Tyra, and it’s my stop on the Escapist Books Tour book tour for Aaron S. Jones’ Memories of Blood and Shadow. I am so excited to be a part of this tour and I’ll be sharing my book review below.
From Tyra Leann: The more self-published books and SPFBO finalists that I read, the more I continue to be blown away by the level of creativity that flourishes in this community. It’s amazing the level of talent and ingenuity that exists outside the confines of traditional publishing. I think all of the finalists this year are incredible in their own rights. Here are some of our thoughts on The Forever King, the official synopsis of the book, and our final rating.
