Wednesday Wishes

It’s been a great book month. I’ve actually been having luck picking out titles that are 5/5!! Let’s hope the book Karma keeps rolling good.

Of Triton by Anna Banks

Of Triton (Of Poseidon, #2)Get it: Amazon | Goodreads
Genre: YA Paranormal
Series: Of Poseidon, book 2

In this sequel to OF POSEIDON, Emma has just learned that her mother is a long-lost Poseidon princess, and now struggles with an identity crisis: As a Half-Breed, she’s a freak in the human world and an abomination in the Syrena realm below. Syrena law states that all Half- Breeds should be put to death.

As if that’s not bad enough, her mother’s reappearance among the Syrena turns the two kingdoms—Poseidon and Triton—against one another. Which leaves Emma with a decision to make: Should she comply with Galen’s request to keep herself safe and just hope for the best? Or should she risk it all and reveal herself—and her Gift—to save a people she’s never known?

Let’s be honest I’ve been lusting after Of Poseidon for quite a while—still no idea why I haven’t bought it yet. So it’s only natural that after seeing the cover for book 2 that my thoughts are, “Give-me, give-me, givey!”

The Warded Man by Peter V. Brett

The Warded Man (Demon Cycle, #1)Get it: Amazon | Goodreads
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Series: Demon Cycle, book 1

As darkness falls after sunset, the corelings rise—demons who possess supernatural powers and burn with a consuming hatred of humanity. For hundreds of years the demons have terrorized the night, slowly culling the human herd that shelters behind magical wards—symbols of power whose origins are lost in myth and whose protection is terrifyingly fragile. It was not always this way. Once, men and women battled the corelings on equal terms, but those days are gone. Night by night the demons grow stronger, while human numbers dwindle under their relentless assault. Now, with hope for the future fading, three young survivors of vicious demon attacks will dare the impossible, stepping beyond the crumbling safety of the wards to risk everything in a desperate quest to regain the secrets of the past. Together, they will stand against the night.

It’s been a while since I’ve read an Epic Fantasy title. It seems like ever since I started blogging I really haven’t read much of the genre, or kept up to date on it. Makes me sad since some of my favorite reads are EF. I will admit some of it was due to burn out.

So this one sounds really unique and it’s one of the current series.

Mage’s Blood by David Hair

Mage's Blood (Moontide Quartet, #1)Get it: Amazon | Goodreads
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Series: Moontide Quartet, book 1

Most of the time the Moontide Bridge lies deep below the sea, but every 12 years the tides sink and the bridge is revealed, its gates open for trade.

The Magi are hell-bent on ruling this new world, and for the last two Moontides they have led armies across the bridge on 'crusades' of conquest.

Now the third Moontide is almost here and, this time, the people of the East are ready for a fight ... but it is three seemingly ordinary people that will decide the fate of the world.

Another EF to fire me up!! Though I will confess this one will either rock, or fail into the pit of could-have-been-more titles. Here’s hoping!
