Virtual Book Tour: Funeral Games by Jay Allan

    Title: Funeral Games Author: Jay Allan Publisher: Harper Voyager Impulse Pages: 464 Genre: Science Fiction/Fantasy Format: Ecopy/Paperback The battle for the unification and rule of the Far Stars Confederation will be decided in this exhilarating third and final book in the swashbuckling space saga begun with Shadow of Empire and Enemy in the Dark. The Far Stars stands on the edge of a precipice. The forces of Governor Vos have surged forth, conquering worlds and imposing the emperor’s brutal rule over millions. Only one thing stands in the way of total victory: Marshal Augustin Lucerne and his newly created Confederation. Vos has a simple plan: assassinate the marshal, and manipulate his generals to fight over his legacy, destroying each other in the process. But another threat lurks: Arkarin Blackhawk. The smuggler and mercenary has been the marshal’s ally, working in the shadows and unraveling Vos’ plans. The governor can only hope the mysterious adventurer continues to resist a formal position in the Confederation. Or he can have Blackhawk assassinated, too. Because with Blackhawk succeeding Lucerne, the black and gold imperial flags will be stained red with blood. For his is a dark and dangerous past, and if he is put at the helm of the Confederation armies, the brutal imperial general he once had been may rise once again. The Far Stars are facing the final battle....

Review: Goldenfire By A.F.E. Smith

Goldenfire by A.F.E. Smith Publication Date: Jan 14, 2016 Genre: Fantasy Goodreads Summary: In Darkhaven, peace doesn’t last long. Ayla Nightshade has ruled Darkhaven for three years. With the help of Tomas Caraway, her Captain of the Helm, she has overcome her father’s legacy to find new confidence in herself and her unusual shapeshifting abilities. Yet three years ago, a discovery was made that could have profound consequences for the Nightshade line: a weapon exists that can harm even the powerful creatures they turn into. And now, that knowledge has fallen into the wrong hands. An assassin is coming for Ayla, and will stop at nothing to see her dead. (less)   My Review I enjoyed this one even more than the first. We get a whole new set of characters in addition to the main characters, and various sub-plots. Goldenfire was filled with even more mystery and intrigue surrounding a looming assassination attempt and even though I had again figured out who the culprit was, the events leading up to it was very interesting and kept me glued to the pages. The author’s writing style makes for a fast-paced read and is not weighed down with unnecessary or cumbersome descriptions. I loved the characters and my favourite is Naeve Sorrow the sellsword. I am very curious about her and hope to see more of her in the next...
