Today’s theme for the Wyrd & Wonder Challenge is ‘Throwback Thursday’ and this is all about highlighting a backlist book. So today I want to mention an author I’ve come to love over the last several years, Carol Berg. I’ve read her Rai-Kirah Trilogy (which has one of my favorite characters ever written), The Lighthouse Duology (amazing world-building and reading these books was like trying to puzzle out a mystery and I loved them) and three of the Chimera books she’s written under the name of Cate Glass (these have been a lot of fun). But even though I’ve read quite a few books by her there’s still more I’d like to get to.
Brutal imprisonment has broken Aidan McAllister. Once the most famous musician of his generation, celebrated as a man beloved of the gods, his voice is now silent, his hands ruined, his music that offered beauty and hope to war-torn Elyria destroyed. Even the god who nurtured his talent since boyhood has abandoned him. But no one ever told him his crime. To discover the truth, he must risk his hard-bought freedom to unlock the mind of his god and the heart of his enemy.
I’m excited to get to this one because a) it’s Carol Berg and b) it’s a stand alone (we really need more stand alone books in Fantasy). Currently have this one on my shelf and I hope to get to it some day soon! Do you have any back list books you’d like to get to? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
