What have I read this week?
The Fallen Empire Omnibus (Books 1-3 and prequel) by Lindsay Buroker
This is an anthology consisting of Star Nomad, Honor’s Flight, Starseers and the prequel Last Command. The three novels follow an ex-fighter pilot named Alisa who is trying to find her daughter after the end of an interstellar war. The prequel follows Leonidas, a character from the novels. I enjoyed these, but reading them all together was a little samey. I would prefer to have spaced them out a bit.
Of Sand & Malice Made by Bradley Beaulieu
This is a fantasy novel about a girl named Çeda who is a pit fighter. She becomes entangled with Rümayesh and ends up in a fight for survival. I enjoyed this. The world is interesting and I found the characters fascinating. I will definitely be reading more in this series.
The Shotgun Arcana by R.S. Belcher
This is a fantasy novel set in the American Old West about a town called Golgotha where strange and evil things happen. It was quite interesting, and also a bit gross, but I don’t think I want to read any more in this series.
