WWW WEDNESDAYS: June 17th, 2015

Smaller WWW Wednesdays

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @Taking On A World of Words where three question are asked:

What are you currently reading?

‘A thousand years ago evil came to the land and has ruled with an iron hand ever since. The sun shines fitfully under clouds of ash that float down endlessly from the constant eruption of volcanoes. A dark lord rules through the aristocratic families and ordinary folk are condemned to lives in servitude, sold as goods, labouring in the ash fields.

But now a troublemaker has arrived and there is rumour of revolt. A revolt that depends on criminal that no-one can trust and a young girl who must master Allomancy – the magic that lies in all metals.’

I am FINALLY reading The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson, which so far is very good and very interesting. It’s easy to tell it’s a series as the protagonist needs a lot of character development, and it can’t be fit into just one book.

What did you recently finish?

‘Imprisoned on the dead moon of Bina, trapped at the bottom of the cold Hixom Sea, locked in a cell in the flooded Desa and blinded & defeated in the Eastern Provinces, the ruling class of Darracia is defeated without hope. In the stunning conclusion of the Darracia saga, V’sair, Tulani, Zayden and Reminda must dig deep and find both strength and faith to rise from the depths of the impossible and restore order to their home planet from Lothen, Staf Nuen and the evil armies of Geva.’

I recently finished Risen by Michael Phillip Cash, the last book in the Battle For Darracia trilogy which I was sent in exchange for an honest review. The review for the first book in the trilogy, Schism, is up now. The reviews for Risen and the second book, Collision, will hopefully be up soon.

What do you think you’ll read next?

‘Sephy is a Cross – a member of the dark-skinned ruling class. Callum is a nought – a ‘colourless’ member of the underclass who were once slaves to the Crosses.

The two have been friends since early childhood. But that’s as far as it can go. Against a background of prejudice, distrust and mounting terrorist violence, a romance builds between Sephy and Callum – a romance that is to lead both of them into terrible danger . . .’

I think I might read Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman next, but I have a feeling I’ll want to read the rest of the books in the Mistborn trilogy, so I wouldn’t be surprised if I went out and bought them. It really depends on how I feel.

If you have a WWW Wednesday post of your own leave the link to it in the comments so I can check it out.

Happy Wednesday!
