What have I read this week?
The Soldier Son Trilogy by Robin Hobb
The trilogy consists of Shaman’s Crossing, Forest Mage and Renegade’s Magic. These books are about Nevare Burvell, a boy who has been raised to become a soldier, and what happens to him when he encounters the magic of the local conquered tribespeople. I enjoyed this trilogy. It was a good read, even if the main character was annoying occasionally. I’d definitely recommend it, but it does get pretty dark in places.
Pantomime by Laura Lam
This is a YA fantasy novel about a young person who runs away from their wealthy family and joins the circus. I’m not saying any more to avoid spoilers. I really enjoyed it, and I liked the main characters and the world they live in. I intend to read the other books in the series.
