The Darkening by Sunya Mara (Trade Paperback)

The Darkening Cover

I just started reading an intriguing new young adult fantasy novel today with The Darkening by Sunya Mara.  The Darkening is an intriguing and exciting novel set in a city surrounded by a magical storm that is slowly eating it away.  The story follows the daughter of a notorious rebel who joins the city’s elite magical guards to free him and get revenge on an evil prince.  I have made some decent progress on The Darkening and it is proving to be quite an awesome read with an outstanding story to it.  I am aiming to finish The Darkening off by the end of the week and I think this is going to turn out to be one of the better debuts of 2022.

 

Star Wars: The High Republic: Midnight Horizon by Daniel Jose Older (Audiobook)

Star Wars - Midnight Horizon Cover

I have also recently started listening to the audiobook version of the cool Star Wars tie-in novel, Midnight Horizon.  Part of The High Republic sub-series, Midnight Horizon is a young adult read that follows a group of young Jedi as they investigate Nihil on the planet of Corellia.  A continuation of several other great young adult High Republic books, such as Into the Dark and Out of the Shadows, Midnight Horizon has an interesting story to it so far, and I am really powering through it.  This is another book that I am hoping to finish off by the end of the week, and I am very curious to see how Midnight Horizon ties into some of the other High Republic books out there, such as the pivotal novel, The Fallen Star, which was released around the same time.

Warhammer: Vampireslayer by William King (Audiobook)

Vampireslayer Cover

Many people will be unsurprised that I have once again drifted back to the world of Warhammer with Vampireslayer, another entry in the Gotrex and Felix series by William King.  Set in the Warhammer Fantasy universe, Vampireslayer is the sixth entry in the Gotrex and Felix series, which follows a mad dwarf slayer and his human companion as they travel across the land seeking out every deadly monster they can find.  As the name suggests, Vampireslayer will see them face off against the hordes of the undead after a deadly vampire takes one of their companions. I have been deeply enjoying this epic series over the last few months, will all the previous entries (Trollslayer, Skavenslayer, Daemonslayer, Dragonslayer and Beastslayer), being extremely fun and loaded with action.  I have only just started Vampireslayer, but it is already proving to be a compelling and awesome read for me and I look forward to seeing what violence and death lies in wait for me.

The Lawless Land by Boyd and Beth Morrison (Trade Paperback)

The Lawless Land Cover

I just started reading this impressive new historical fiction novel from the excellent team of Boyd and Beth Morrison.  Set in 1351, The Lawless Land follows an honourable and skilled knight who finds himself dragged into a massive conspiracy that seeks to engulf all of Europe.  I am already a major fan of this intense and captivating novel, and it is proving to be an excellent overall read.

 

The Omega Factor by Steve Berry (Audiobook)

The Omega Factor Cover

I have also just started listening to the new Steve Berry novel, The Omega Factor.  Berry, who has previously impressed me with his Cotton Malone novels (including The Malta Exchange, The Warsaw Protocols and The Kaiser’s Web), has returned with another intriguing modern thriller focused on historical events that follows a new protagonist who gets caught in a war between two ancient and secret religious orders.  I haven’t gotten too far into The Omega Factor yet, but it is shaping up to be a very interesting and fun book.

Kagen the Damned by Jonathan Maberry (Audiobook)

Kagen the Damned Cover

I am still listening to the Kagen the Damned audiobook by Jonathan Maberry, although I have made some steady progress in the last week, and I am currently over the half-way mark.  I am still really enjoying this impressive and exceedingly dark fantasy novel and I extremely intrigued about how it is going to turn out.  I will hopefully finish Kagen the Damned off completely in the next week or so, and I reckon that Maberry still has some major shocks and dangerous twists to come.

Black River by Matthew Spencer (Trade Paperback)

Black River Cover

I’ve been in a bit of an Australian crime fiction mood recently so I just started reading the cool new Australian murder mystery novel, Black River.  The debut book from author Matthew Spencer, Black River follows the intense investigation into a series of murders in Sydney.  A powerful and dark read, I am pretty hooked on the compelling mystery at the moment and should hopefully finish this off soon.

 

Kagen the Damned by Jonathan Maberry (Audiobook)

Kagen the Damned Cover

I finally managed to start listening to the latest book from one of my favourite authors, Jonathan Maberry.  Taking a break from his usual horror and science fiction thriller novels, Maberry has dived into the epic fantasy genre in a big way with Kagen the Damned.  Following a despair riddled hero, the titular Kagen, as he attempts to get revenge for the dead royal family he served, this is an extremely dark novel, with a ton of brutal action and over-the-top violence in it.  I am already a few hours in and I am enjoying seeing the author’s transition to a new genre, as well as the compelling narrative Kagen the Damned contains.  I am extremely curious to see where the rest of the story goes, and this will probably end up being one of the best books I read all year.

Wrong Place Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister (Trade Paperback)

Wrong Place Wrong Time Cover

I didn’t have a lot of time to read Wrong Place Wrong Time during this last week, although I did make a bit of progress earlier today.  This  time-travel orientated thriller is very good though, and I am getting really caught up in its intriguing mystery.  I will hopefully knock this book off in the next day or so and I can’t wait to see how the entire complex story comes together.

 

Warhammer 40,000: Huron Blackheart: Master of the Maelstrom by Mike Brooks

Huron Blackheart Cover

I’ve been in a major Warhammer mood lately and I ended up listening to three awesome Warhammer 40,000 audiobooks in a row.  In my defense, the first two were extremely good, and I figured I’d go for the hat-trick and try to find a third outstanding Warhammer read.  My choice ended up being the recently released Huron Blackheart: Master of the Maelstrom by Mike Brooks, which follows the marauding pirate Chaos Space Marine, Huron Blackheart, as he struggles to retain control of his damned realm.  I have already made a bit of progress with this audiobook and it is turning into a rather interesting book.  Hopefully this will slake my need for Warhammer fiction for a little while, although there are several other great Warhammer books currently sitting near the top of my to-read pile.

Against all Gods by Miles Cameron (ebook)

Against all Gods Cover

I just started reading an advanced copy of the latest novel from Miles Cameron, Against all Gods.  This intriguing novel is set in a world governed by malicious gods and follows a human’s attempt to bring them down by any means necessary.  I am already pretty hooked on this awesome novel, which isn’t too surprising considering the quality of Cameron’s latest novels (Cold Iron, Dark Forge, Artifact Space).  I look forward to seeing how this epic story unfolds and I will hopefully finish it off in the next few days.

 

Star Wars: Brotherhood by Mike Chen (Audiobook)

Star Wars - Brotherhood Cover

I haven’t made a great deal of progress on Brotherhood since last week, only chipping off a few hours.  I will probably listen to more of it in the next day or two and hopefully it will be finished by this time next week.

 

The Sandman – Act II by Neil Gaiman (Audiobook)

No progress on this one since last week, hopefully I will get through more of it on the weekend.
