Recent Book Purchase

Thursday, July 24, 2008

I've bought a bunch of books still week, some of those purchases came about because of online review buzz, some of it my own weakness, one in particular I blame on Meljean.

But I don't have time to blog about them all, so I thought I'd point to one that I think might appeal to a number of folks since it seems to feature an M/M relationship. I was looking for Patricia Briggs and the cover art of this one caught my eye, as well as the title. Isn't loverly?


The few places I sampled the writing, pulled me right into the scenes being depicted, so I bought it. Just checking Amazon now I can see that it's book 4 of a series that started back in 1996, so I might have to find the previous book(s) if I like this one enough.


With their most treacherous mission yet behind them, heroes Seregil and Alec resume their double life as dissolute nobles and master spies. But in a world of rivals and charmers, fate has a different plan.…

After their victory in Aurënen, Alec and Seregil have returned home to Rhíminee. But with most of their allies dead or exiled, it is difficult for them to settle in. Hoping for diversion, they accept an assignment that will take them back to Seregil’s homeland. En route, however, they are ambushed and separated, and both are sold into slavery. Clinging to life, Seregil is sustained only by the hope that Alec is alive.

But it is not Alec’s life his strange master wants—it is his blood. For his unique lineage is capable of producing a rare treasure, but only through a harrowing process that will test him body and soul and unwittingly entangle him and Seregil in the realm of alchemists and madmen—and an enigmatic creature that may hold their very destiny in its inhuman hands…. But will it prove to be savior or monster?

Like the duality of the nobility/spy idea, always have. This one looks interesting.

Verra nice cover.
And he's gay? Durn. He's so cute!

Agreed. "dissolute nobles and master spies" really stood out in that first paragraph, and the third paragraph sealed the deal.

You really don't get the full effect of the cover art online, Raine. The expression in his eyes, the lanks of hair lifted by the wind, the houses on the hillside. It's really well done. Once I finish Patricia Brigg's Alpha and Omega, I'll dive into this.
