“Tam awoke with the roar of the arena echoing in her ears. Her head was throbbing, and her jaw ached as though she’d taken a punch. Memories began to surface in her mind, ghastly images, like cold corpses floating below the glassy face of a lake. She saw the cyclops toppling, its head cracking like a gourd as it hit the ground. There’d been blood—so much blood—and Tam had fainted dead in front of fifty thousand people.”
–Nicholas Eames, Bloody Rose
Hey friends! I recently finished Bloody Rose by @thebookofeames!! Huge thank you to @orbitbooks_us for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!! Bloody Rose releases 8.28.18!!
Well, fuck. I don’t even know where to start. This book. This world. It’s just EVERYTHING!!! In addition to being a hell of a good dude, Nicholas Eames is just one of the most vibrant & unique voices in fantasy right now!! Bloody Rose needs to be on everyone’s TBR, posthaste!! This is the follow-up to Kings of the Wyld, which...if you haven’t read that, JUST STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND READ IT ALREADY!!! Real talk, this is is one of the best books I’ve read this year...Eames is a fucking treasure, and his first two books are nothing short of amazing! (Also, can we all pause and take a look at this cover? Because it is fucking GORGEOUS!! @flaptraps just killing it, again & again!!!) My full review is up on the blog (link in bio), if you wanted to have a look! Spoiler alert: I really loved this! 😆
