All opinions are my own. Do you get a tingly, magical feeling when you walk into libraries and see all those glorious books? As a kid, did you ever wish that the fictional worlds within your books were real? Read More. Mok to The BiblioSanctum to talk about wild and wondrous journeys, both the ones from her book as well as those from our childhood dreams that inspire us. As a child, I spent countless afternoons at my local library, and every book was a portal to some opulent masquerade ball or desolate, far flung star. Every time I opened a new book, I felt as though I were stepping gingerly, excitedly, into a different realm.
What marvels would I see today? Would I be chased by giant amoebas or would I untangle a diplomatic standoff between warring galaxies? I loved the brave and inquisitive characters and their wild, rollicking adventures, but one of the things that hooked me into fantasy was the sense of discovery, the sense of place.
The places I visited in the stories I read became as much a part of my world as my dinky local milkbar. By seeing lands vastly different to my own, I could begin to understand what it might be like to live in eternal winter or beneath the shadows of dragons, to ride on the shoulders of benevolent giants or to walk beside the forest gods. There is something both confronting and reassuring about seeing people — just like yourself — living their lives in such places, wrestling with the same problems of injustice, corruption, uncertainty and self-doubt.
In Hunt for Valamon , the reclusive cleric Seris must leave behind the sanctuary of his ramshackle temple and embark on a politically compromised mission to rescue a missing prince.
Navigating his way across unforgiving lands, grappling with the fears and ambitions of villagers and warlords, Seris is forced to grow and change, to confront questions about who he is and who he needs to be. In my mind, the best journeys are those you return from slightly breathless, slightly changed.

THE BEST AMERICAN HUMOROUS SHORT STORIES
By all accounts, Boric the Implacable was, while he was alive, an incomparable badass. By all accounts, he was an even bigger badass after he died. But for Boric, death was just another bullet point on his already impressive ass-kicking resume. In addition to his already impressive catalog of badassery, death granted him invulnerability….

Again, very excited to see some of the changes from the earlier draft I read. My thanks to the author who sent along the widget. I believe this book began as an audiobook exclusive, written specially for Audible Studios. Thank you! I will be diving into this one soon.
I shall be keeping it in my consideration pile though, for when I have more time to read the previous books. This was unsolicited but I am no less psyched about the book. According to Goodreads, this book has been on my to-read list since April 1, My interest in this series was piqued again with the release of the third book recently, and I figured this would be perfect for my list of possible Backlist Burndown books.
