For my theme, I'm going with a little author/title alliteration.
Today's challenge post is brought to you by the letter K, as in The Kingdoms of Thorn and Bone by Grey Keyes. This is another from the towering to-be-read stacks, a fantasy saga set in a time after humanity, lead by a legendary witch queen, escaped their slavery at the hands of a race of powerful magicians. I've heard very good things about the saga, drawing comparisons to the likes of Jordan's Wheel of Time and Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire - except, of course, Keyes went into the saga with a plan for 4 books, which he released in 2 year intervals.
While much of my reading lately has focused on sagas with new entries coming out this year, it's nice to know there's a completed series there waiting to be enjoyed.
To borrow an idea from several bloggers I've been visiting on the challenge, I've included a little musical accompaniment for the day, courtesy of Killer Dwarfs. When it comes to '80s hair metal, it doesn't get much purer, undiluted, and just balls-out fun that these crazy guys from Oshawa, Ontario. They were a staple on rock radio for years, until Grunge knocked all the good stuff off the airways.
