The Thousand Names | Django Wexler

“The hilltop was dark with enemy horsemen gathering around a dozen black-clad priests who chose that moment to bring into their sweet, high song. They all hit subtly different notes, and the result was a ringing harmony that echoed down from the ridge with a weird unearthly beauty.“

Sanditon | Jane Austen

I always feel so sad reading Jane Austen's last work. But her sharpness of wit survived to the end, because even as her health was failing she still had the humour to poke fun at the hypochondriacs who found their way to English bathing resorts, and whom she must have encountered in number during her time living in Bath and visiting Lyme Regis. A bold sense of the ridiculous was a part of Jane Austen's genius and, it seems, it never left her.

Scochrane26 I‘ve never read this one. 3w
johncadams @Scochrane26 It's actually really good. I've got it in a single, quite thin volume with Lady Susan and The Watsons! 2w
Scochrane26 I‘ve read lady Susan after seeing the movie but don‘t think I‘ve read the other 2. Will have to look for them. 2w

The King Beyond the Gate | David Gemmell

Was it wise to withhold from Ananais that Tenaka was now the Khan of the Drenai's greatest enemy? But what would it achieve to tell him? He trusted Tenaka, and when a man like Ananais gave his trust it was forged stronger than silver steel.

The King Beyond the Gate | David Gemmell

“I am a man with a dream, Ingis - the dream of Ulric. These men with men were once Doublehair. Now they are mine. The burly one by the far tent is a Spear. Now he is mine. These forty represent three tribes. United, the world is ours. I am an enemy to no one. Not yet.“

Lady Susan | Jane Austen

“There is exquisite pleasure in subduing an insolent spirit, in making a person pre-determined to dislike, acknowledge one's superiority.“

The King Beyond the Gate | David Gemmell

Scaler looked up as he appeared. He wanted to rush forward and embrace him, but resisted the urge. Tenaka would never recognise him. The Nadir prince had changed little, he thought, save for the few grey hairs glinting in the sunlight. The violet eyes were still piercing, the stance still unconsciously arrogant.

The King Beyond the Gate | David Gemmell

Tenaka awoke from a dreamless sleep, his eyes flaring open and fear touching him like a cold caress. He rose to his feet. The moon was naturally bright, glowing like an eldritch lantern.

My futuristic horror novel Souls for the Master is available for free on Smashwords and for 99p on Kindle!

quote
johncadams

This prize is worth bloodshed, he thought. And he whispered a final prayer to the god of war under his breath, promising to build him a great new temple in the heart of Jezalya if the battle went well.

blurb

I love that Kamala is breaking into the Magisters, a role previously kept only for men. Or was it?

quote
johncadams

The gods were watching her, Kamala could sense them all around her as she stared into the smoke. A circle of gods watching her as she strained her Sight to the utmost, trying to manage by purely morati gifts what she had thus far failed to do with sorcery.

“When Sloat's smug face appeared at eye level, Raisa stiffened her fingers and stabbed them into his eyes, a technique Amon had shown her all those many years ago.“

blurb

The Exiled Queen | Cinda Williams Chima

I love the collegiate feel of Oden's Ford, where all the young people in this novel go to study. Each has its own specialism and the university, one by one, draws each of them in, forcing the protagonists into close proximity.

quote
johncadams
The Exiled Queen | Cinda Williams Chima

“Maybe he wanted to work her hard enough to wear her down, to make her give up the idea of hiding among the warrior cadets at Wien House. His idea was that she'd stay in the temple close, cloistered with the dedicates, gardening and reading and studying healing and doing needlework with the speakers.“
